Moiturize, moisturize, moisturize.
Take an anti-itch medicine like zyrtec (cetirizine). Find out if you are allergic. And moisturize!

In brief: Hard Case

Unfortunately, there are no supplement regimens I am aware of to help the problem. The main thing to try to do is to hydrate your skin constantly with lotions like lubriderm/eucerin/cetaphil.
Do not use lotions with an odor, it's alcohol based and drying. Try putting lotion on right out of the shower without trying off. Night time, use vaseline and cover up with clothes over that vaseline layr.
