Yes, I have had the itching thing at times, especially after one starts to drain. Even right before one is ready to finally open, I will get that itchy feeling, and after all these yrs. I can tell it is ready to do something different. I don\’t get concerned with it like I did in the early stage of mine, as the itching for me is a sign that something is finally trying to heal.
