In brief: Can be due
To excessive caffeine especially if the itching wakes you from your sleep at night.
Start but eliminating all caffeine sources for 10-14 days and see if it is better.

In brief: See dermatologist
It is highly unlikely it is steven johnson.
It can be contact allergy, a manifestation of diabetes , chronic dermatitis that has lead to hyper pigmentation. Blood teat are indicated for underlying causes and if possible oral steroids cow, d decrease itching. The increased color once itching is controlled will require topical medications and treatment over months to lighten.
