Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Indeed since your skin is in perfect condition, the itching is not due to the skin related problem.
This is likely due to the nerve related problem.
Stress, menopause all can combine to produce these symptoms.
The best treatment will be prescription medications:
1. Amitriptyline 25 mg starting then increasing to 50 to 75 mg daily at bedtime.
2. Gabapentin 100 mg starting then to 330 to 600 mg daily.
Over the counter Capsaicin ointment can be tried.
Diphenhydramine ( benadryl) 50 mg 2-3 times a day can be used as well.
I have been taking ampitriptyline 25 mg x 2 nightly I haven't tried capsaicin ointment or Diphenhydramine can I buy the ablets over the counter
you can try them together
and amitriptyline dose can be increased to 75 mg at night daily.

An itch--chronic itching-- without a rash has a wide differential, and it is important that you know it, and that your doctor investigates accordingly.
Iron deficiency [and this can be from slow bleeding], polycythemia vera, liver or kidney problems, heavy metals, allergy, parasites, hidden infection and hidden cancer.
In addition more rarely, other autoimmune disease, hormonal disease, and other toxins that heavy metals.
This is not something just to treat, and your skin can be in perfect condition. Go over this list with your doctor without fail.
