Itchiness all over body

On Sunday (three days ago), I hooked up with somebody. I hooked up with the same person on Monday. Since then, I've been quite itchy all over my body, but not really in the genital area. I read that STD-related itchiness should typically occur there, but I'm wondering if it could also occur throughout the body. Could this be STD related, or is it probably just something else, ie allergic reaction? I have had a history of eczema, but its severity has decreased significantly as I grew older.

My partner was apparently clean, but should I go get myself tested anyways?

And yes, it was protected the first time, but we did unprotected oral the second time.

I didn't read a concern for STD or a reason to test.   So no need to test.
Visit your doctor/medical provider about your recurrent eczema or the ichyness.

Hm, really? I'm sometimes itchy around the crotch area, but not directly on my penis, scrotum or around the pubic hair. The main areas are the back of my head, my neck, my forehead, my nose, etc. etc.

Really really.   You reported protected sex; and really its protected and it really prevents you from a dozen STD infections.  Your somewhat at a risk for unprotected oral, but that's a low risk encounter.  Plus you have no symptoms.  

Its like if you fell off your bike, and had no symptoms of a broken arm; and I told you, "you don't need x-rays."    I mean if you didn't or don't believe me, then go get those x-rays.

what I'm trying to say is :

No symptoms and protected sex, then no need for testing.

Well, I suppose that's comforting. Still pretty mysteriously itchy, but who knows.
