I did a lot of online research because my feet would itch all night long, but never during the day. One thing I came across was that it can be a nervous habit, mind over matter so to speak.

On the other hand, do you take hot showers? That can dry out your skin. Try to only shower every other day and keep the temp as cool as you can stand it. Do you moisturize after your shower?

Some medications can make you itchy.

How's your liver?

One of the first symptoms of liver problems in many people is itchy skin... a lot more water, astringents (parsley, green leafy veg like kale and spinach, asparagus, artichokes, tumeric...) in your diet may help.

I know its not dry skin cause I would be ithcy all the time, I don't take hot showers or am takin meds.. i think it is my liver. I had gallstones when I found out I was preg 15mths ago. They didn't do anything for me at all.

Hugs mama...are you going to head to the doctor then?  Just to get checked out?  I'm sorry!

Saw dermatologist......Moisturize! No hot showeres, avoid baths.....drink lots of plain water. I'm going to get a room humidifier, too. 

Ps. Maybe during the day when you are active or preoccupied, you just don't notice the itch?
