Child gets itchy before sleep. Is this anxiety or something else?

My 7 yr old son has been itchy right before falling asleep for about three months. It takes him anywhere from 20 - 60 minutes to fall asleep because of it. During the day he is fine and doesn t complain until after I read to him and it time to go to sleep. What can be causing this? Is it anxiety because he d rather go to my bed?
