Itching at night could be a symptom of scabies infection. I would recommend trying Nix cream/lotion on the skin to see if it improves the symptoms. In addition for the itching you can also use benadryl cream or tablets (also avaiable OTC) which will improve your itching as well. If however this does not improve your symptoms you would need to consult a dermatologist for further evaluation of your condition.
