Itching on arms, shins. How to get rid off it?

Antihistamines do not help for my itching on my arms and shins. Can it be caused by anything else than an allergy . Been to 3 different specialists and numerous doctors over the past 10 years. It happens on a daily basis and lasts for a few hours. The only thing that does give some relieve, is when I poor very warm, almost hot water over affected areas.
