This suggests that there could be something in your home environment aggravating it more. I agree with the suggestions to try either all natural or hypoallergenic, unscented laundry detergent, soap, lotion and any other personal products.

The hydroxzine helps at night but makes me drowsy.
Antihistamines dehydrate you which can make your skin itch more, and you are taking 2 antihistamines daily. When taking them, it's important to drink more water and try increasing water-rich foods - vegetables, fruits, broth-based soups. If you eat a lot of salty or sugary foods, drink caffeine beverages or alcohol, try to cut back. Don't underestimate dehydration. By early morning you would be dehydrated after taking 2 antihistamines the night before and not consuming fluids for several hours. I also suggest researching the effects many people have had from taking hydroxyzine, one of which is increased, severe itching.
