Pruritus: In my practice and most common cause of pruritus is too frequent bathing. You should definitely talk to the dermatologist about this and see if she/he can give you advice on the right to take care of your skin. There may be other causes so they will look.

Cholinergic?: If he has itchy bumps also, then it is called cholinergic urticaria which flares up after the body gets heated up then cools off. This can often be prevented by taking an antihistamine such as zyrtec (cetirizine). It may go away by itself with time but is not a serious health issue.

Raise the dose: You may try taking fexofenadine up to 4 x the recommended dose and see if this helps. Wool sweaters tend to intensify the itching. If the problem lasts for more than 6 wks, try to get to an allergist.

Itching: This can be from multiple causes, skin infection, dry skin, drug reactions, hives, eczema, etc. Your best bet is to have your rash checked by a doctor to determine what is going on and guide your treatment. You can take an oral antihistamine to ease the itch until you reach a doctor.

Itching all over the body. No rash nothing at all. It just itches a lot all over. I put baby oil after I bath still its not okay!! : (?

See dermatologist: If the itching is so bothersome, you should consult a dermatologist since dry skin is apparently not the issue. The itch pathway is far more complex than we had thought and no longer just a matter of histaminic action. (I assume you have tried antihistamine already. If not, you may give it a try).

A few times a year, a rash appears all over my body, and I get severe itching at my extremities such as hands and feet, the top of my head.?

Hives?: This sounds like an allergic reaction. You could try an over the counter antihistamine the next time this appears and see if you get relief within an hour or so. It would be helpful to get in to your doctor the next time it shows up. Identifying the trigger is key to avoiding it in the future.

Dermatographism: Dermatographism means the ability to write on the skin. People with this form of chronic urticaria are sensitive to touch and pressure, as well as scratching. The areas of skin that are touched or scratched get a raised, red and itchy rash. While many people with chronic urticaria have features of dermatographism, people with true dermatographism have pressure as the trigger. Try Antihistamines.
