Unexplained Itching

For the last year or 2, I've been getting severe itching in distinct spots on my body.
It happens on the knuckles of the right hand, left elbow, left side of my chin, and testicles.
There is no rash.
It'll start suddenly in one spot or more, but only in the spots mentioned above.
After a month or so, it goes away and eventually comes back for another cycle of itching.
My knuckles will get thick and scaly skin that eventually peels off.
I've also had psoriasis since I was born, but that is now under control with steroidal creams and sunlight.
I'm going crazy trying to figure out what this other itching is.
I've already gone to several dermatologists who've treated it as if it were psoriasis or eczema to no avail.
Any ideas?
Thanks,
Lenny
