I get very itchy areas on various parts of my body, They are red, slightly swollen, seems to be about this time of year. Several years ago, it got so bad on the back of my knee, the doctor had to give me a cortizone shot. Right now, I have these areas on my upper chest, lower neck, inner elbows and forearms and tops of my feet to mention a few.

Thanks for the query.

I think you are suffering from chronic urticaria.

It is a non specific condition due to allergic reaction.

A photograph would have helped me better, in diagnosing your condition,

you need a prolonged treatment with anti histamines.

Please consult a dermatologist for a prescription.
