In brief: Try to avoid

Try to avoid scratching as you may cause trauma to the skin resulting in possible infection.
Contact your doctor and voice your concerns. If the cast has been on too long it may need to be removed and replaced.

In brief: Product

I can't recall the name of it but recently saw a product designed exclusively for this, i think it might of been called "cast blaster" a it had a straw like tip to the canister and allowed one to spray a solution.
Sorry, i can't recall it's name. Don't be foolish and try and stick a hanger or anything down there it will only lead to trouble.

In brief: You Don't

You have to be careful putting antyhing down your cast.
If you break the surface of the skin, you can develop an infection. If you lose something in the cast, this can lead to pressure irritation and skin damage/infection. It very hard o see or treat these areas wih the cast in place. See your doctor if you have any concerns. Dr l.
