Tough to say: You need to see a dr. And get a an official history and physical to determine what issues you have. Probably not a dermatitis if it only happens when standing. May be some nerve irritation caused by a standing position irritating your sciatic nerve, that is somehow causing the feeling of "itching" to the area a nerve branch is innervating, a simple guess on the computer though. Get eval, good luck.
Serious problems: Serious conditions such as severe infections or very low blood flow to the leg can lead to amputation. Sometimes a serious infection can get into the bone causing osteomyelityis, and sometimes antibiotics do not always work. Low blood flow risks are increased in cigarette smokers and diabetics. Ischemic or infected tissues can sometimes cause serious troubles, negatively affecting other organs.See 1 more doctor answer
All structures Cut: During a leg amputation, the surgeon starts by making a skin incision. This is designed to help in the closure of the stump. Next the muscle fascia is cut, followed by the muscles. The primary nerves, arteries and veins are then ligated (tied off). Next the bones are cut with a saw and the cut edges are filed down. Finally a flap of muscle tissue is used to cover the bone and the skin is closed.See 2 more doctor answers
