Usually does not: Cause itching. If you are on an antibiotic for the UTI you can develop a yeast infection which can cause itching so call your doctor and tell them your symptoms.

Yes: A UTI can cause burning more than itching. If there is itching, it is possible that you have a yeast infection.

Not typically: That will be unusual for UTI to cause whole body itching. There may be a different condition or a type of allergy to drugs or supplements taken for treatment. Feel free to report to treating doc.
