Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. Take multivitamins, just on case.

No: Itch is not related to MPB. It could be related to dandruff / seborrheic dermatitis, or simply dry skin.
