The Itchiness stops for while and starts again. COuld it be eczema related as I also have very sensitive and dry skin, and have started using Eucerin Body Cream!

You could have contact dermatitis or infected eczema on the skin of the neck or perhaps a condition called Sycosis nuchae which is a deep seated infection of the hair follicles on the back of the neck. Treatment would depend on the cause, so get your doctor to take a look at the skin to make a diagnosis.
