    It may be exzema or psoriasis. These are both itchy and bothersome skin conditions. Consult a dermatologist so they can pinpoint if it is either of those. They will, most likely, scrape a little skin flake off and look under a microscope to see what it is. It's really a simple office visit to go to. Good luck!
