I have a lot of itching too. Surely dermatitis would cause itching, but there are different kinds of dermatitis. I think I have a chronic fungus infection which is more commonly called candida or yeast infection, but although it starts in the female organs, it can enter the blood stream and cause breaking out on the face and other places. I take at least two garlic pills every day to keep it under control. If I eat any sugar (I try to keep it at a minimum), then I take 4-6 pills in a day. I also break out easily from prescription meds and had Poison Oak so bad I thought I might die. My sisters and brother also had terrible cases of PO.
There are a number of things you can do to help it---it could be (at least partly) an allergic reaction to mites. If that is the case, then change your bed once a week and your pillow cases every couple of days or more often. You could change all of that every day---but just depends on if you have the time and energy. (My laundry here is expensive too.) If you go to a dermatologist, he will give you an allergy test which I had too, but it didn't help anything----it might be what you need though.
