Whole body itching!!!! HELP!!

Evening all!
I have been experiencing full body itching for the last seven days, I have small red bumps and also bumps under my skin.
I today noticed a black lump within my inner thigh, today it has been removed but my nurse was unsure what it was! Could this be the route cause to my constant body itching? I do generally suffer with urticaria and also wheat exercise induced anaphylaxis. Also fexofenadine does not reduce the itching! :( please see attached pictures of the lump and result after extraction.

Re: Whole body itching!!!! HELP!!

I TOTALLY feel your pain... as a Fibromyalgia sufferer, i have had constant itching in flare-ups and its very distressing...my last one lasted approx 4 weeks and eventually left thru my feet... but my skin is now covered in red lumps and bumps and still super sensitive.. my GP is baffled and i can't see a dermatologist due to COVID ... the only thing i found that helped was putting ice packs on it, and lots of Epaderm creams regularly.

It could be an allergic reaction to something you put on or eat.
