If so, maybe try goats milk soap (canus brand is great -- can get it at some stores and from Amazon w/ free shipping).

Yeah I've cheked by blood during the night and it was ok at 6.3. My skin doesn't feel dry either but I have been putting on lots of mosturiser just in case thats what it is. May give the asprin a try tonight because I could do with a good nights sleep before work tomorrow.

My DSN and endo both say that is down to sugar levels drying out the skin (even thought it doesnt look dry to the eye)

as a matter of fact I have. It happened to me because my blood sugar was high. have you checked your blood sugar when this happens? If not you might want to consider it.
Might not be your bg at the time, but rather your overall numbers. How is your a1c? I had a bout of this when my a1c was at its highest. The itching nearly drove me crazy. Now that it's down the itching is non-existant.

I had been prescripbed Lac-Hydrin as well, but it was many years ago. I had heard it was now OTC, and sure enough our local Costco is carrying it. I tried using it again, but didn't find it worked that well for me. Just making sure I use something daily when I get out of the shower seems to help. Additionally I'll use Aquaphor if my regular Aveeno is not enough. (While it is technically OTC, it is located behind the Rx window, so you have to ask for it.)
My doc prescribed Lac-Hydrin for the dry skin on my legs last year. My legs did not itch and it works great as long as I use it. This summer it seemed to make me feel hotter so I stopped using it as regularly. On the other hand my legs did not get as cold when I put it on before going out to work last winter. Not everyone tolerates it well and it's only by prescription.
