Often times during the healing process one my experience itchy feelings and associated redness. You have to make sure it is not infected. However, it is not likely as you say it is healed. If you damaged the tendon it can take longer than you might think to heal.

healed, if it was I would not expect the redness and the itchiness….try a topical steroid cream and if no improvement see a foot doc.
