My body had been spontaneously itching. Pins and needle feeling leads to Itching

Hello, I am a chinese male 22 years of age and for the past few months my body had been spontaneously itching. This spontaneous feel occur when I feel nervous or when my body heats up from working out. I think it might have to do with me not able sweat or something because I used to break a sweat when I got nervous or from working out. Now, I don t sweat and it goes straight into that pins and needle feels all over my body and becomes itchy after. There are no spots or rashes anywhere so I am at a lost. Please help me.

Thanks for your query.
You gave a classical description of CHOLINERGIC PRURITUS.
In this condition the patients gets an itchy sensation all over the body WITHOUT any rash, after doing manual work, consuming hot spicy food,or emaotional upsets.
You may try tab fexofenadine 180 mg once daily and see how it goes.
Revert back to me in this space or in case there is no improvement. ( which happens sometimes).

Avoid scratching or rubbing over the itchy skin. You must strictly keep your fingernails short to avoid damaging the skin from scratching.
Use lukewarm water for baths and very little soap. Rinse thoroughly and dry your skin completely after baths.
Apply a soothing lotion after bathing to soften and keep your skin cool.
Dry skin is a common cause of itching, so keep your skin well moisturized.
Wear loose clothing of fabrics that will not irritate your skin. The same should be followed with bedclothes.
Avoid prolonged exposure of your skin to heat and humidity.
Apply ice over the itchy area to avoid the urge of scratching.
