Allergy: This might be an allergic reaction to something in your environment or that you are exposed to at night. Try to identify different things that you are near before the symptoms begin. If you ever are in a different environment and the itching does not occur or is much better, this also speaks for something in your surroundings that could be triggering an allergic response.
