It seems that both of you have been scratching really bad that it leaves scar. Itching by itself does not leave scar. You should come see a local doctor to be evaluated and treated. Either an allergist or a dermatologist would be able to help you. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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.

Top of feet have a blisters and  rash that itches. Appeared after wearing a certain pair of shoes with now socks.  What would be this best treatments?

Blisters: Obviously you will avoid wearing the Sox to which you are most likely allergic, and the blisters may be from illfitting shoes. Don't try to puncture the blisters, keep them clean and dry and free as possible from pressure on them. Apply cortisone type cream to the itchy rash. Wear white Sox and have your physician examine you if increased redness or pain develop. ...Read more
