Hey tharkas and thanks for your question.
It sounds like you had some acne scars for which you had treated. Then it sounds like your broke out with a rash on scalp, back and face?
I would recommend going to a board certified dermatologist to assist you. There are some blood conditions that result in high red blood cell count that can cause itchiness when you get of the shower- those are rare indeed.
Sounds like you've tried a lot of different lotions etc. so I'm sure you're frustrated.
Make sure it's nothing serious and then I'm sure a local dermatologist can help you with some topicals!
Hope this helps and God Bless!
