2 days ago I started experiencing uncontrollable itchiness. Feet, hands, neck, head, face legs, arms, back, chest butt, and stomach. It is constantly moving. Mostly my feet, hands neck and shoulders. What could be a cause for this?

What could be a cause of this? I have dry skin normally, but lotion gets rid of it and it only usually lasts for about 20 minutes. It has been constant for 3 days now. I am male, mid 30s age.

Hello. Thank you for writing.

The first thing that comes to mind is an allergic reaction of some sort. A certain medication or food perhaps. Scabies is also a possibility if red bumps and/or lines should appear. Early signs are intense itching all over. There is really no way to know what you have without being evaluated by a doctor.
