Red face old scars suddenly very itchy

My 12 year old carpal tunnel scars and my 2 year old plantar fascia (foot) scar are suddenly very itchy. Can anyone tell me why and what can I do to relieve this miserable itch? HELP PLEASE!

I don't know about being suddenly itchy. I have a scar from probably 10 years ago that still itches off and on. My hope is that it's (very very slowly) healing. Or maybe dry or something (does scarred skin have the same moisture content as normal skin? Is it more affected by dry air, etc.?). Any raised scar can be irritated by rubbing on things.
