    I was itching for about 4 years before I discovered what was wrong. It was the soles of my feet that were worst

    I'll add to this tomorrow

    Have you checked the obvious things, like your washing powder [or whatever you use] and body wash etc.? Have you changed brand recently?

    Have you been to see your GP?

    10 years ago, I discovered that I was allergic to formaldehyde and formaldehyde releasers and now avoid them like the plague! I am quite an expert at reading labels!

    In about 2010, I started to itch again, this time I have an autoimmune disease.

    The itching is very draining especially when it happens at night.

    You need to see your GP and probably ask to be referred to a Dermatologist

    Only a blood test initially can reveal any abnormality in your system.

    Ask to test for urea, creatinine, UPCR.

    Best wishes.
