My Dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
I have a suspicion that you had herpez zoster.
For this itching you may have calamine lotion,which is a soothing lotion and if further medication is required then anti allergic tablets may be taken once a day.
In case of any further query in this regard please do get back to me.
