Hello and welcome to HCM,

Presence of itching scars/ abscesses which itchy can be due to a number of causes.
It can be an infectious process which is causing wide spread pus collection in various areas- waist, thigh, vagina.
A pus culture will help to isolate the infectious agent responsible for the infection.
The cause for the itchiness has to be looked for.
Skin irritation, skin allergy can also cause itchiness.
Certain sexually transmitted diseases can also lead to these symptoms.
Clinical examination of the lesions is required.
You need to be more cautious as there is associated pregnancy.
Further investigations and management can be planned only after the clinical examination.

Thanks and take care
