In brief: Treatments

Itchy rashes often respond to antihistamines like benadryl, (diphenhydramine) claritin, or zytec.
Soothing baths with Oatmeal (including products like Aveeno) can also help.Avoid getting hot, or sweaty as that will aggravate itching. It is possible to get chicken pox (viral infection) despite the vaccine.See http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/chickenpox/basics/definition/con-20019025 for chicken pox info
