over the counter antihistaminics will be beneficial to you...Consult nearest allergy clinic or dermatologist for clinical examination they will do the needful...Recognition of the problem, avoidance of precipitating physical stimuli, reduction of stress and anxiety are important factors in medical care. In addition, scratching because of dry skin can be reduced through good skin care and the use of emollients...good luck.
