What causes itchy lesions over the whole body?

default
Posted on Tue, 11 Mar 2014
Question: I have been suffering with itching from my feet to my head. I can't resist scratching and so I get little bumps cropping up, they open up and then form a scab. Reminds me of chicken pox. It started in my lower legs and worked it's way up to my torso, arms neck and head. I've used lotions which help for a little while.
