Welcome to Healthcare Magic
You could be using soap you are allergic to which can cause itching. Change to milder soap with less drying effect on kin like Dove soap which also has moisturiser. Bathe with warm water, make sure to remove all traces of soap and shampoo after bath to prevent accumulation and itching.

General & Family Physician Dr. Dhananjay's  Response
u can try following remedial things.
-applying moisturizers on the skin before and/or after a bath,
-change ur soap, it might be the cause. use milder soap.
-drying the body properly immediately after a bath or shower,
-bathing with cold or luke-warm water, instead of hot water (the hotter the water, the more your skin loses its natural moisture).
-delaying bathing until you stop sweating. The sweat pores are open during sweating, so if you're sweating when you start bathing, water and soap seep into the sweat pores and make the itching worse thereafter.
-Dont over-scrubbing ur body during bathing, e.g. not using a sponge,
-take antihistaminics medications
follow above mentioned things, ur symptoms may improve..take care...bye..
