Are you itchy all over?
Definitely try a non-fragranced moisturiser and if the itching is concetrated in an area, use a bit of hydrocortisone cream.
Don't use soap all over your body (just the most important areas
;-)....maybe try Dove baby shampoo and body wash unscented..it's mild.
Have you changed your laundry soap?
Is it hot and sticky where you live? Are any areas on your body red as well?
Do you get regular liver enzyme blood tests done?
Definitely let your doc know regardless.
