Constant full body itching? HELP!!

It's been about a month now that I have been dealing with my skin itching uncontrollably! There are a few areas that itch worse than others but in generally my whole body itches. I have little sores from scratching and breaking the skin over and over. I am in general pretty dang miserable. I have no idea what is causing it but I need it to stop! My first thought was the change of weather but it's usually over pretty quick and this isn't. What could I use from head to toe to get this to go away?? Thank you!

All I drink is water, I can't take Benadryl during the day unless I want to sleep all day, and baby oil? vs say, coconut oil? Or something else?

Well I use this certain crazy expensive soap now that I am preggo. It's lush king something soap. It literally leaves an oily film on my entire body. And it's been huge in my itchiness being low key. The bar is like $12? And I buy 3 at a time. But it's been a lifesaver. But I imagine oils of any kind would work?? This is just not slippery nor does it stain anything??

Is it possible you have candida? Look it up, as that could cause it.

If it's not that, I recommend coconut oil. For the sores, dab a little neosporin stuff on a couple times.

Did you change any of your soaps? Laundry or shower stuff, specifically.

I'll look up candida.

I have changed shower soaps but that was before this started. I did buy some laundry stuff to use at my grandmas (no washer/dryer..ugh) but that was only used once sometime about a month ago. Since then it's been back to the normal stuff. I thought that could possibly be it but everything has been washed multiple times since then in our regular stuff.

Food allergy/intolerance maybe? Have you started eating anything different?

No I don't think so. I am eating healthier than before but you'd think that would have a good effect on me lol

Are you pregnant? Depending on how far along you are (second or third trimester), itchy skin could be related to liver problems also called cholestasis of pregnancy. You can look it up. The main symptom is itchy skin. A simple blood test from your OB would diagnosis it
