Hello there...I can understand your concern. Dermatological conditions of chronic duration will require proper history and detailed clinical examination to come to a proper diagnosis. Nowadays there are many non sedating antihistamines like desloratidine, fexofenadine, monteleukast which you can take for itching. Since it is chronic you will blood investigations also. So kindly consult a good dermatologist for further evaluation.

It seems that you are suffering from skin allergy...... 

Just take t monteleukast 10mg at night for 30 days.. To avoid allergy.. It is non sedative.

In the mean time , try to find the allergens.
Can be perfumes, dust, pollens, pets hair etc...
  U can got CONTACT ALLERGY SKIN TEST, to find the culprit allergen.

And remember itching can also be due to other problems like liver, eczema, psoriaris etc..
Consult skin specialist if no relief..
