Itching: I assume you are not wearing jewelry regularly or applying perfume to that area? If so discontinue and see what happens. On the other hand, if the itching happens after eating, and you develop swelling in the area, you may want to have them check your parotids and have a blood test for salivary amylase levels. You may have chronic parotitis.
