In brief: Depends

It depends on the cause, but over the counter cortisone cream is a reasonable place to start.

In brief: Depends on cause

For itching without rash, non-sedating anthistamines like loratadine, Cetirizine or fexofenadine can be helpful and are available without a prescription.
If you have a rash, sometimes 1% Hydrocortisone cream can be helpful. It is best to consult your doctor to be sure that the condition is properly diagnosed and treated.
