Positive skin reaction after TB skin test, normal x-ray. What do I do about itching and soreness in arm?

I received a TB skin test that I needed to be cleared to volunteer at my son s school. I had a positive skin reaction and I had xrays done today that are normal. My question is, what do I do about the itchiness and soreness in my arm? What can I take and/or put on it to relieve the itchiness. I want to scratch it so bad, but I am trying to refrain from doing that. Please help.
