Help! Dry/Itchy Hands

Having to use soap and sanitiser so frequently has dried the tops of my hands out and they have become incredibly itchy. I have tried nivea cream and O’Keefes working hands cream but nothing is taking away the extreme itch. Is there an anti itch cream I can get on amazon or in store for dry itchy hands? Even when warm water touches my hands, my fingers and hands become extremely itchy too. I can barely sleep at night. Any ideas?

I noticed last year creams just made me worse o I asked the doctor and they prescribed clear stuff (ointment they call it rather than whatever the other is (cream?)).
Anyway just a thought.
This is the one?
Before my skin turned against dimethicone, though, Aveeno really helped (lotion or cream, though cream was more effective).
If the itchiness is being caused by dryness then it's probably moisture you need rather than itch relief cream. Just my opinion.
I recommended this to OP because they mentioned the itchiness has occurred after the increased hand washing and sanitising. They didn't mention any allergies. E45 is a good moisturiser with a medicated element and I stand by my recommendation.
