In brief: Dust allergy?

Skin itching is not a typical symptom of dust allergy, especially if you mean dust mites.
Has she seen an allergist or been tested? She needs to see a physician and get the cause of her itching properly diagnosed. Antihistamines alone often are not adequate to treat severe skin disorders though you say nothing about a rash.
