They sell lidocaine/menthol gels in convenience stores that can be used to numb it up a little. You fried your skin and damaged it. Your body is releasing a bunch of cytokines to eat up the dead tissue and repair. Some of the cytokines released can cause itchiness. Don't damage your skin next time.
