Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Some of the drugs that you are taking can cause allergic reactions and may be responsible for itching.

But there is also history of asthma and allergy for you which could be responsible for itching.

Allegra that you are taking should give relief for itching that you are having.

If the symptoms persist despite taking allegra you should consult your doctor for further evaluation of the exact cause of your problem and further management.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
