Thanks for the query,

You might be suffering from urticaria,

It presents in the form of itchy lesion on the body.

It is difficult to find out the cause.

It can vary from food to any other thing like dress, perfume etc.

You can apply cortisone,

It is a mild steroid and can be safely used.

You should also take an anti histamine tablet,

Prolonged use of anti histamine tablet will give you better relief.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.
