I'm not sure if you ever got advice about your itching problem, even though it was posted years ago. It sounds like you have cholinergic urticaria, an inflammatory condition where your body improperly responds with IgE mast-cell activation to heat, most commonly seen after exercise and showers. The lesions can be centimeters in diameter, papular and look like "pencil erasers", characterized by their excessive itching. There are a variety of new drugs available for this condition, tell you Primary Care doctor about this and work from there. Benadrly, cold showers, calamine lotion and loose clothing may provide temporary relief while heat, stress, greasy foods, con-commitant infections and itching will surely make it worse. Hope everything turns out OK.
