In brief: Gently

I assume that you are receiving Lotemax (loteprednol) for some allergic type conditon of your eyes which causes itching.
Scratching is ok if done gently despite the presence of lotemax (loteprednol). Cool soaks can also help. If the goal is to limit the allergic reaction, then the Lotemax (loteprednol) should diminish your need to scratch.
