Thanks for the query. its unusual to have persistent itching once the lesions have resolved. Consider applying a moisturizer on whole body and a soothing calamine lotion on more severely affected areas. Start on OTC anti allergic medications for few days. If it doesn't subside in next 48hrs with these measures, see a Dermatologist near you
