In brief: Common

This is a common problem. You could be coming in contact with something you're allergic to, or a medication you are taking could be causing the itching.
Or (more rarely) it could be a sign of an internal problem. If it just started, try one of the non-sedating antihistamines such as Allegra or claritin (loratadine). If that doesn't work, or you've had it for awhile, see a doctor to rule out internal causes.
