First of all you need to find out whether you really have an itch due to sweat dermatitis or infection or allergy or eczema etc. If this is not the case then probably scratching is an obsession with you. You need to distract your attention away from it. However, you may not be able to do on your own and may need help from a counselor. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
