Recurrent itching in hands followed by legs. Take proper precautions. Cause?

Hi, I have itchy hands on mondays and tuesdays, most wednesdays im fine, thursdays it starts a litlle itchiness and by friday i nay get itchy legs that could just stay one day or during the weekend. Ive tried everything. I stay away from the sun, i dont eat chocolates, acid fruits, nuts . I dont get hives or scars, sometimes i notice a patch of redness in my skn and then it starts itching. If im not itchy and i wear a wool sweater, i will react to it. I had been like this since may last year. Please help me.

Hi Roximpellizeri,
Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, it seems that you are allergic to some clothings like woolen clothes.
Try to change the brand or material of your clothing.

Also get yourself investigated for Absolute Eosinophil Count.

You can take antihistaminic like Fenofexadine 180 mg once a day to cure the allergic reaction.
You can apply locally on scar, some skin cream containing steroid like betamethasone for quick relief from itching.

If your problem persists, get yourself examined by a dermatologist.
I hope this is helpful to you.
