At night take a bath and add 3 quarts of hydrogen peroxide (the cheap kind that you find for a buck). When you are done do not take a shower and soap off. Just wipe yourself down with a towel. This should help you sleep at night without waking up from scratching. Also Make sure you shower in the morning because if you don't you will stink. Like I said before the hydrocortizone cream will really help with itch.
