Hi and thanks for using the forum.

There could be a lot of reasons for your itching including an allergy of some kind (not necessarily to a soap, it could be related to a food), or a skin problem (even though you do not have a rash).  I think you should speak with your mom again and ask if she can take you to your primary care physician.  He or she can help figure out what is causing this.   It does not sound like it is "in your head" since this has been fairly persistent.  I hope this helps.  Good luck.
