Welcome Megan, it seems you are allergic to something, but to what? You should go to the doctor ASAP, after 2 months aren't you tired, it certainly not your mum who has that, I'm sure if it was her she would have seen a doctor already! Keep posting and let us know what it is!

could is possible be KP? I have a really bad case of that which causes me red itchy bumps...only itchy when it's extremely dry. Could you possibly send a picture and we'd know for sure? KP is most common on upper arms...is that where you are getting this?

If you and your sister got it I would look at the soap you are using and see if your mother changed washing detergent for your clothing. It sounds more like a contact dermatitis as you itch and it is sudden and it happened to another household member as well.
