Itching: I doubt that there is a relationship unless there is some environmental exposure related to your exercise. Such as exposure to rubber on a mat. Or something on a rug or in a gym or if you shower after exercise. Do you have any rash? See your dermatologist for testing. Treatment will depend on the diagnosis.
