Viral infection followed by Itching all over body

I am having a Viral Infection and every day since I got this infection, i started to get little pin pricks all over my body. It is from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, with the most annoying being on my eyelids, on my earlobes, on my face, down my entire body including between fingers and toes.  The itch lasts for a few seconds and goes away.  Typically, I don't even bother to scratch because there is nothing to scratch and I know it will go away in a moment.  Itches on the face however usually elicit an involuntary scratch reaction.  It is at times completely unbearable. i am currently taking Fenistil for itching and it is fading little by little. does Viral infection trigger such an itching or it can be something else??
