Dry skin - winter itch. Stop taking hot showers and make them short to 5 mins max. Change your bed sheets often. It may be helpful to buy a loofa on a stick so that you can exfoliate your back when you shower. 
It can be winter disease or maybe because of bacteria. Consult with doctor before it becomes severe.
