You may be suffering from urticaria. Dry skin in general makes your skin more itchy. Use moisturisers liberally (2-3 times a day). Use a moisturising body wash for bath. When you have itching you could use anti allergic medicines like Levocetrizine tablets. You could get these over the counter but I would recommend you consult a dermatologist to rule out any other diseases causing itching. Warm regards. Dr. Rajdeep Mysore. Chirag Hospital Bangalore
