Itching skin (usually no redness)

I am not sure If I am in the correct place to post this so I apologize ahead of time.

For the last lets say 3 weeks or so, I have had an itching sensation at at times a slight feeling of burning on the back of both my hands and on the outsides of my forearms. Up until now there has been no redness visible. Earlier today I noticed small bumps going up my forearm but have recently disappeared. When I itch the area's I described above I get several red bumps (most likely form irritating the skin). However the itching sensation lingers on.

I have tried anti-itch creams, but they don't seem to be working, tried taking some allegra but I do not discern a great change in the symptoms.

Is this an allergic condition? Could this be shingles? Is there anything anyone can suggest that may take care of this issue as it is driving my nutz, but I do not want to go to the doctors if I don't need to.

Re: Itching skin (usually no redness)

Usually itching is a sign of allergy, but not always. If it is an allergy, Zyrtec or Benadryl might work better to provide at least temporary relief.

You could try eliminating possible triggers. If you wash your hands with antibacterial soap, stop and use something gentler. If you use hand lotion, consider switching brands. Consider anything else you put on your hands regularly, whether chemical or natural.

Re: Itching skin (usually no redness)

You may want to take a trip to a Dermatologist and see if it's eczema. I had eczema in my inner arms for a while and had no idea what it was. It was very itchy and would sometimes show up with red bumps on my skin. The Dr said it was from my allergies but I think it can be caused by other things. I'm not entirely sure, I never really looked into it.
