It can be due to the scar itself. The more you scratch, the more would be the symptoms. Therefore, avoid scratching. Apart from self control, distract your mind to other favorite activities. You can use silicon gel over it. Moisturiser mixed with steroid skin cream applied in small amount spreading the part & rubbed gently. In case of unbeatable consult your surgeon.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
