If you're itchy only when you've been at work, then something is getting on your skin at work. I had to quit a job because a solvent they used, created an ultra fine mist in the air and my skin was always itchy and my face was always red. There could be many things in the air or something you come in contact with, mold, perfumes, deodorizors, cleaning supplies, a poor HVAC system, hand soap from the bathroom, office supplies, plants, flowers, vapors orfumes from pressed wood, that would be in furniture or carpeting and upholstery. You would be surprised of all things that can affect a person with sensitive skin, I'm the queen of sensitive skin, many things can make me itchy.

I think it's from sensitive, dry skin not being able to adjust to air exposure. Your skin has been covered all day, and is reacting to a temperature change. Example, goose bumps can make dry skin itch.

I get really itchy if I wear long sleeves...to the point where I'll scratch until I'm bruised. I think it's the pressure from the clothing. Cold, dry weather is also a huge factor....

I use Benadryl, too, when needed and try to keep as moisturized as possible! I just live with it....have no desire to go in for testing and all that rigamarole!!! I don't think this is life-threatening, (been going on for over 30 years...hasn't killed me yet!) although it is a pain!

Default It could be carpet mites

It could be that carpet mites are in the carpet at work, get on your clothes there and then get on your skin when you take your garments off.

This happened to several people where I worked in the 1990's, who complained of iching around their ankles that would work it's way up their legs when they took off their work clothes.

Washing the carpet will not get rid of carpet mites.

Unfortunately carpet mites are clear bodied, so the usual tape test that exterminators use will not detect carpet mites. However, if you tell the exterminators that you suspect carpet mites, than they will use the appropriate insecticide to ge rid of them.

watch also what your using during and after a shower, this could be causing your problem more than your workplace.
