iching attacks

Just over the past month I've been hit with attacks of itching, it feels like something is biting me but there isn't and pest doing the biting. It comes to no particualr place on my body, most common places are the top and side of my hands, back of my legs, top on my foot, under my breast. I will scratch so hard that bumps or blisters will form and some times I can tear the skin. I'm not sure what type of Dr. to see, my dermatologist or my MD? I already have eczema on my fingers so back that they crack and bleed and I lose my skin, my derm has gotten that under control with 2 types of topical treatments, cream and an ointment.
Can I take an antihistimine? I'm already taking Singular for my athsma.
