Is severe itching all over the body related to RSD?

I was diagnosed with atypical RSD about 5 yrs. ago after have thumb reconstruction surgery. I ve been okay and able to deal with it. However, about two weeks ago my skin started itchy all over my body. I feel the itchiness, don t touch the area (after seeing what scratching can do to your skin), and notice the area that feels itchy is fiery red. If I don t scratch it, it eventually goes away and starts to itch and get red somewhere else on my body. Could this be related to the RSD?

Itching all over the body may be due to scabies infection. Apply calamine or scaboma lotion over whole body below neck after taking bath with warm water at night. Take levocet or avil for severe itching along with bandy-plus one stat and one after seven days. Also take some multivitamin tablets.

Hello Doctor, Last night i woke up and found myself scratching alot. i dose off and ignored it. I continued to inch though. So this morning i got up and all i saw was red swollen bumps all over my body. Where it itches, it feels really hot too. I thought about all the things i have consumed and used on my body. Can things still react after certain amount of days? The bumps would disappear and move to another place throughout my body. Now it is on my face. My palms are not itchy so it not anything severe, i hope. Any thoughts? Thanks for reading.
