itchy red spots on arms, legs, buttocks and tummy

Three months ago i started getting itchy red spots on my legs which have now spread to bottom, tummy, arms and back.
Sometimes my skin feels like it is burning. I scratch all the time and the spots, some quite large, develop scabs.
I have been to the doctor who has done blood tests and given antihistamine and various creams but nothing helps and there are no other underlying issues identified. It is not scabies.
Next step is a skin specialist because the local doctor does not know what the problem is.
This is affecting my whole life, making me miserable, can anyone help and tell me what this might be?

I had a rash that spread to my legs and arms and itched like crazy. went to the detmitologist had a biospy and they daid it as an allergy reaction to somethin I came in contact with. Aveeno lotion helped.
