Have itchy lump all over body. How to get rid of this?

Random lumps keep forming on my skin, they are generally about the size of a dime to a quarter, they show up absolutely anywhere on my body and they itch . They are kind of hard, but they aren t red. I think they are only itching because of the swelling? They used to show up mostly when I first woke up, but now i get them all the time. Help?

Welcome to HCM
Your skin condition most likely is Urticaria.. These may developed due to food allergy, drug allergy, environmental allergy or others.
Whatever the cause is it required the following
a) For immediate management
I) Antihistamine Tablet (e.g. Atarax 25 mg twice daily) for 7 days and
II) avoidance of any known allergic object.
b) For long term prevention you need to do a "Patch test", a skin allergy test and management according to test result.
