    Ya know I used to have a similar problem, I would take a shower and feel extremely itchy..., OMG I CANNOT STOP ITCHING, kind of itchy. I decided to change the soap I was using and make sure I washed it all off and the itchyness stopped.

    Try a skin moistureizer, like Neutrogena. Most all stores carry it. Works great! I use it all the time when those cold dry winter days dry out my skin so much.

    Could be the dryness of air present in winter indoor environments. My cousin got itchiness in winter due the dryness of air."Winter itch".
