? dry skin: as it is affecting the more exposed areas, however, if symptoms are really bothersome you may want to see a dermatologist, meanwhile, try some skin care techniques: as bathing with cream soap, moisturize your skin right after, hydrate you body well, and avoid prolonged sun exposure, occasional antihistamine might help too, good luck

See doctor: Although itchy skin per se is not alarming, when it is associated with purple veins on legs , the problem is likely serious. See your doctor asap.
