Brief Answer:
Vitamin B complex

Detailed Answer:
Hi

In a certain number of people Vitamin B Complex causes occasional itching of skin .

In your condition there does not seem to be any other reason than this.

I suggest you change the brand of vitamin and see if it makes difference.

If still no change after change in brand then stop the tablet and see if irritation is not tolerable.
