Could it be your washing powder or fabric conditioner?

I always had itchy legs, mostly knee down, but it stopped after I stopped using fabric conditioner.

Do you moisturise your legs regularly? It could be that your skin in just dry.

Do you shave regularly? I get horrible itching for a few days after shaving once the regrowth starts. For that reason I only shave every few weeks.
