dry skin? i get very itchy when my skin is dry. try moisturising every time you wash your hans, before bed etc. and see if that works

don't know if you have young baby - steriliser fluids are a big culprit for dry itchy hands. may well be a product. lots of moisturiser.

though i like VT's diagnosis best wink

Any other symptoms? Rash? Itchy soles of feet? Tiredness?

Like others have said, change of diet, washing up liquid, washing stuff, soap, etc.

It could be eczema I get a really itchy right hand (nothing to do with getting money, I wish) I get little bumps that resemble blisters and weep a clear fluid if I pop them .try going to the docs for some cream. Mine is caused by stress and sulphites in foods, wine or cider but its taken me 4 years to work that out. Hope this helps. x
