My wife has been having itching on her body for the past one year. Itching subsides with Allegra 120. She is taking this medicine for the last one year. Mostly, she gets itching on the area which is not covered by clothes. Skin becomes red when she scratches it. I am attaching the picture.

She is allergic. The allergy can be due to food, sunlight, pollens, soap, moisturizer, or powder. So she can be allergic to anything.
As you mentioned that only areas that are not covered by clothes are affected, which points to photosensitivity which is an allergy to sunlight. It can be an allergy to something else as well. It is very difficult to say only on the basis of history. I would suggest to look for any particular food if she develops itching after eating something. Change soap, moisturizer, and powder. Cover the whole body while going out which will protect if she is allergic to sunlight.
You can also go for skin allergy testing which will confirm the diagnosis. Take tablet Montair LC (Montelukast and Levocetirizine) whenever she has itching. Stop Allegra. It is basically prevention from allergens she is allergic to. You can find it by yourself by closely watching or go for skin allergy testing.
