Itchy legs after shaving.

So, I'm sixteen and just this past year my legs have been itchy after I shave. It's mostly my thighs, but my calves and behind my knees get itchy too; as well as my armpits sometimes, but not too severe there.

I've tried Jergens lotion, but to no avail. The itching usually starts after I take my jeans off at night, and that's when it's the absolute worst.

I don't know if any of this is a result to my dog sleeping with me in my bed every night, nor do I know how to stop the itching from occurring. It's driving me completely insane, so if you could help me, it would definitely mean a lot to me!
