After reading your query it seem that your has developed xerosis or generalized dryness of the body. Use a good quality medicated moisturizer for 3 times a day. Protection from cold weather is must and wear cotton clothes.

For itching you can take benadryl or loratadine by mouth. Drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated. Eat a lot fruits and green leafy vegetables.
