I've been experiencing itching on a scar. Are there other symptoms of keloids?

In brief: May not be a keloid
Not being able to examine your scar it is not possible to tell you if it is really a keloid.
Itching can be pretty common in any scar as it heals, keloids too. The major symptom of a keloid is that it enlarges beyond the margins of the original injury.

In brief: How old is your scar
Itching and mild thickening can be a normal healing process with fresh scars.
Keloids are excess scar growth beyond the margins and persist well beyond the initial healing phase.They can be itchy but not always.
