Severe itching with reddish spots on the body. Reason?

I am currently experiencing an off and on full body itching from head to toes; the area of the body itch varies on day by day basis. I am 64 years of age and I recently ( within the last 6 mos. to a year) noticed redness on varies parts of my body, undergarment such as bra leaving impressions from the straps and the other parts of the bra creating an irritating feeling. I also have white round spots on varies parts of the body, particulary the thighs and abodmen. The redness particularly shows up after a shower or bath. The itching occurs on my scalp , arms, legs, burning and itching under my feet , hands, stomach , eyes, face and somtimes my ears. I seem to have ultra sensitivity to my hair and hitting any object. Would like to know what may be causing these symptoms. Thanks.

Dermatologist 's  Response
You might be having episodes of urticaria or hives. To ascertain the underlying cause a detailed clinical history and few investigations might be required. Kindly consult a dermatologist nearby for the same. To relieve itching you may take tablet cetirizine and apply calamine lotion locally. Hope that answers your query. Take care.
