I found and pulled a tick from myself this morning, have been feeling itchy everywhere on my upper torso and arms since then. Is this a symptom?

In brief: Deer tick???

Tiny, black & orange? Local allergic reactions are common, generalized are not.
Deer ticks often carry lyme disease. Lyme earliest showing is erythema migrans beginning at 3 to 10 days. Use of 200mg single dose of doxycycline or minocycline on the day that the tick is extracted will prevent lyme disease. Allergic reaction might call for antihistamine or prednisone.
