Itchy Patches on legs

I hope that you can give me some advice. I have got red patches on both my legs (shins), it looks almost like an exma (sp) - it is very itchy, especially when get in the bath.
I have tried 3 different creams prescribed by the pharmacist, as well as bio oil and nothing seems to work.
I can' t afford to go and see a GP to then be referred to a dermatologist.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
