Extremely (unbearable) itchiness

I am writing in relation to a skin condition my father has developed over the last couple of months. He started with skin boils and now the have become very much like a skin rash. He has arthritis and has been taking Humira for many years. He hasn't had any luck with dermatologists on the NHS. He has patches of this skin condition which hasn't been diagnosed by anyone, all over his back, legs, thighs and arms. To say that he suffers from extreme itchiness is an understatement. He has been prescribed with Augmentin as well as Predisolone which hasn't helped.

I am desperate for any assistance anyone may be able to offer.
