Severe itchy skin after showering

For years now on occasion right after I get out of the shower my skin itches terribly, to the point where I run around like a chicken with my head cutoff. I could easily scratch my skin raw. There are no sores, no bumps, no dry skin at all. I have tried not using soap in the shower that seems to help. It is usually worse after I shave my legs but not always. I apply Aveeno for dry skin lotion as quickly as I can and this doesn't help. The itching is severe for about 20-30 minutes and then goes away. My back never itches only my legs and arms and occasionally my chest but never all at the same time-thank goodness! What is this? At first we thought it was because we have well water and after we got a water softener it did seem to help but not always. Now when I shower at the gym after I work out I'm starting to itch again to the point where I don't want to take a shower anymore for fear of the discomfort. Any ideas?
