Make my legs stop itching Oh God please

Why are my legs--especially calves--itching all the time?
I know it's winter, so things are dry, but I moisturize religiously and it happens during the summer too. I've tried Bag Balm, Eucerin, body butters, shea butter, aloe, hydrocortisone, exfoliating, not exfoliating, Cetaphil, jojoba oil, cold showers, not using soap on them, not shaving, and not using stuff with cetyl alcohol in it. This has been going on for years now, getting steadily worse each year, and a dermatologist a while ago just told me to put on lotion. What next?

Also, it doesn't look like eczema, and there's no flakiness or anything, just terrible, terrible itching.
