In brief: Yes

Though it is rare, aquagenic pruritis or urticaria is a real condition.
A board certified allergist/immunologist can best help you with the diagnosis and treatment.

In brief: Yes, it is real

Itching after bathing in hot water is real, peculiar and may be a clue to internal disease.
It can be seen with polycythemia rubra vera, a condition of too many red cells somewhat akin to leukemia. Check with your doctor...
