My 88-year-old mother itches all over despite my applying E45 cream to her entire body every night. What can be causing this?

I am her sole carer. She has vascular dementia and an ovarian tumour and has recently had a transfusion of blood (one unit). The itch has become so severe that she scratches until she bleeds. Her back and feet are now particularly bad. She cannot get to sleep at night and becomes tearful at the intensity of the condition. Our GPs have tried amending some of her drugs but now seem to be at a loss.
