Itching Neck: Itching is usually due to release of histamine. This may be blocked by taking an antihistamine. Topical irritants / allergens may be found in soaps, detergents, anything you apply to your skin. Are you using a sunscreen? This could trigger the reaction. Look at everything you are applying to your skin. Sometimes, a change in how you are cleaning your clothes will explain.
