Am I experiencing dry patches due to soap?

I am 44 years old and for the last 2 months, I have been experiencing dry patch on the inner part of my leg which starts from my panty line. I started only using Ivory soap to avoid the perfume in other soaps. Am I experiencing this because of the soap? It mainly itches at night and it also bothers me in my pubic hair area (top portion). I don t really know what doctor to go to.
