Intense itching, redness, swelling on the feet ended with scars, spread on arms and knees. Blood tests normal. Any idea or suggession?

I will randomly start getting intense itching, redness and then swelling . It first started on my feet and I couldn t stop myself from scratching , it felt like I needed to get deep down in my joints so I ended up with some brutal scars. Its happened a few time on my feet and knees and now its happened again in my arms particularly around my elbows. It eat really healthy and exercise everyday. Im a kinisiology student so I followed the standard proceedures and got blood test done and everything came back normal. Both me and my doctor are stumped. any idea or suggestions?

Dermatologist 's  Response
It seems that you may be having idiopathic urticaria. As you got blood tests normal and found no cause, the urticaria is labelled as idiopathic urticaria. Take fexofenadine or levocetirizine in morning. Take hydroxyzine HCL at night. If poor response, add steroid in tappering dose for short period. Reduce anxiety. Any treatment, take under supervision of dermatologist. I hope you got my answer.
