Seasonal itching around waistline, get red raised bumps on scratching. Remedies?

I seem to suffer from a very itchy skin at just this time of year. The itchiness appears around my waistline at the front on occasions and other times on my lower back around the waist area. (I think I have a dry type skin because sometimes my lower legs can itch but that is completely separate from this issue). When I scratch the areas concerned, I get raised red bumps which seem to be hyper sensitive. I don t suffer this problem all year round - it just seems to come about in the Autumn time. I am forever moisturising the areas concerned, such as my legs, and putting anti itch creams on my waistline/lower back areas.

Hi Liz,
Itching during a particular season can be due to allergy. Are you ok rest of the year?
The itching during autumn season can be due to some allergens ( can be related to plants) which causes itching in your body.
You can take antihistaminics, under medical supervision, for relief of itching.
Have your blood test done for Eosinophil count.
Please do deworming also if not already done.
