Try to moisturize the skin immediately after bath and at bed time. In addition, you may take some anti-histaminic medication (prescribed by your doctor) for relief from itching. If you do not get relief in a weeks' time, you should see an Allergist or a Dermatologist to decipher the cause of your problem.
