I have been suffering from skin rashes, I don't know if they are really rashes but my skin is itching a lot in some places. When I scratch my skin it's getting reddish in that particular place. I have this problem more in lower waist of my body. I eat chicken every day. I stopped eating everyday since the allergy started. I always take avil 25 mg tablet when it gets worse. Please let me know how to cure this problem.

You are probably suffering from what Dermatologist call urticaria. Common causes are food allergy, infection or drugs taken for some condition. It presents with itching resulting in formation of red rashes which we call hives or wheals. Although in most cases cause remains unknown in spite of a thorough search. It can be treated with medicines so that you do not get any new hives. The treatment should be prolonged until it resolves which usually takes 1 to 6 months. Please contact me through online consult option for further details and treatment.
From what you write it appears to be due to dry skin especially during winter. Use any good moisturiser twice a day on these areas. I would also recommend a clinical examination so that you do not miss any cliniical feature.
