In brief: Watch area...

If you have a small blister from the burn that now itches, that is not concerning.
The itchiness can be felt during the healing process. What you want to look out for are any signs of infection. Whenever your skin barrier is compromised (burn in your case), skin bacteria can cause infection. Pus, increasing redness, increasing pain, new swelling, are worrisome signs warranting a trip to a doctor.
