Itching on the arms and shoulders. Have been treated for hives, eczema and scabies. What could be the problem?

I have an itch that starts on my arms and top of the shoulders on my back sometimes and legs but not that often, when I start itching its like it moves all around my body. I get hot and just what to scratch my body all over. Very stressful, the spots look like 3 dots together and sometimes raised lumps mostly on my shoulders, I have been suffering from this for about 3 years and its driving me mad. I have been treated for everything from hives to eczema and scabies nothing works. Can you help.

hi dear thanks for a good history, it is certainly hives. scabies itch wont come and go and in eczema there will be oozing. red raised bumps appear in hives. this is a very chronic condition and there is no permanent cure to this. it usually happens due to allergy to anything. it might be food, particular type of cloth etc. so now its ur duty to find out what exactly is causing this. also u can meet a dermatologist and ask him about patch tests for allergy. thank u
