In brief: A number of

Things but sounds like an allergic reaction, possible contact dermatitis, try Benadryl (diphenhydramine) at night and think about any new skin exposure to clothes or detergents.
Idiopathic urticaria is a stress related issue generally. Surprisingly sometimes stomach acid blocker that block histamine can help. Can try topical Hydrocortisone cream?Could be fungal infection but it stays, itching intermittently.
