Skin redness and itchines

Hello, I'm 27 years old. Whenever I scratch my skin within 2 mins it'll swell and turns red. I consulted a doctor, she prescribed a tablet and after using it, the swelling and redness reduced. But, if I didn't take the tablet even for 1 day, I'm getting this itchiness all over my body and redness. I couldn't spend a day without the tablet. Can anyone explain what is this? Is this a serious problem? And is there any treatment for this?
