My skin gets itchy, when i scratch it, it turns to red spots. Like rashes. I don't have food allergies. What could this be?

In brief: Angioedema!

Some people with stress release histamine in the skin.
When scratching occurs, red welts occur. Try combining an over the counter drug like Claritin and zantac (ranitidine) (2x 75mg). I bet you get relief!
