Itchy and raised red bumps on body

Posted by firemedicaed

Starting Monday morning, I have woken up itching like crazy.  First, it started with my forearms, then I found that I had raised, red bumps that were itching so bad I wanted to tear my skin off.  It doesn't look like a normal hive, where the darker red is the outline...these bumps are red throughout.  I have gone through so many different things in my head and I haven't changed laundry soaps or bathing soaps.  I haven't been doing anything out of the ordinary.  When I'm working outside, I am wearing long sleeves and gloves with long pants and boots.  I have had these bumps from my chest to my thighs.  I've taken Benadryl with little relief and Aveeno's Calamine lotion hasn't helped much at all.  I'm running out of ideas of what could have caused this and what I'm dealing with.  This has never happened before and it's so uncomfortable.
