My body itches a lot especially hands and my feet, but I have failed to know the cause. Pls a advise . Thx?

Eczema ??

Extremity-upper-hand
Do your hands and feet get bumps, sometimes blister and peel or crack? And do you get rough itchy spots on your body? The answer for that would be eczema but really can't tell without seeing it. The problem could be as simple as dry skin that could respond to AmLactin 12% moisturizer that you should be able to get on almost any pharmacy .see you dr for right diagnosis and treatment.

Skin itch (no redness) started 2 yrs ago, feet & hands, then scrotum. It comes & goes. Now it itches more, puffy eyes and redness on neck. What is it?

Rash

Might be hives which look like a mosquito bite which are red, raised and intensely itchy. They can pop up on any part of the body. But I don't like the rash spreading to the scrotum. Maybe it should be seen just to be safe.

What does it mean when your right hand itches all day ?

If there is not rash and the itching is limited to one hand, it probably means nothing. It could be related to stress.

I have a hard little bump that showed up on my hand, disappeared after a while, and then returned larger but up my arm and itches. What is this?

Ganglion?

Without seeing the bump it is hard to say;but i suspect a ganglion cyst:a sac filled with thick fluid that's in joints.
