Itchy sunburn

Hi there, a few days ago i was laying in the sun (without sunscreen) and got a burn on my chest, shoulders, and knees. the next day i applied sunscreen and was ok. By the third day i woke up with itchy welts all over my chest! Today they are still here and just as itchy, i'm not sure if its from the sun or an allergic reaction to the sunscreen i put on. The sunscreen i put ontop of the sunnburn had alcohol in it (sports sunscreen), could this be what caused it?? how can i relieve the itching i DO NOT want any scarring!!! :(
