itchy blisters

I have uncontrollable itchy blisters that develop on the top of my hands, my elbows, in my hair and hair line and on my buttocks. Does anyone have  any ideas what may be causing this? I have had this for quite some time and not much relieves the terrible itching.

Try Burt's Bees Hand Repair Creme and avoidance of chemicals and personal care products (shampoo deodorant etc.) that contain chemicals and fragrances. Natural fragrances found in organic products are often ok
