In brief: Unlikely.

Unless the area is firm, very tender, and/or oozing pus, and/or you are running a fever, infection is unlikely.
But i would still advise seeing your doctor, because your hands are important and you can't afford to lose the use of one.

In brief: Itch with healing

Many times we have itching after a cut or blister has begun to heal.
This can be normal. Signs of infection include - worsening pain when you press on area, growing redness, more warmth, swelling. If any of these are happening, make sure you see your doctor. Also, this would be a good time to make sure you're up to date on your tetanus booster!
