In brief: Your tolerance

It depends on the cause of the itch.
If it is due to dry skin common in cold weather, using an emollient, skin lotion may take care of it. If there is additional pathology, e, g. Vesicles, discharge, bleeding, you should see your doctor. If it is just itching, you can wait as long as your can tolerate it.
