In brief: Maybe

More likely a reaction to an antibiotic if you are taking one.
If so stop and see dds/md.

In brief: Typically not

Typically an infected tooth will not cause your skin to itch.
Are you taking an antibiotic? Or any other medication? An allergic reaction can cause hives and itching . If you are taking any medications that may be causing an allergic reaction, take some benedryl. And call your dentist now.
