I have had this problem now for about 8 years. The only things that helps, and stops it, is a drug called Atarax. It's an antihistimine that is used to treat anxiety and itching. If I take it 2-3 times a day for a few weeks, it will get rid of the itching, which comes back around the end of the summer. A steroid cream also helps, but treats the symptoms. The Atarax seems to be a cure. You will need a prescription, but it's worth it.
