Super Itchy Post-Surgery

Hey there everyone!
I had major spinal surgery just a few months ago in April. I didn't have staples all I had were disolvable stitches. I have a totally different incision than any other scoliosis surgery patients, I was a patient study. I'm the 2nd person in Canada to have 3 separate incision down my spinal column about 2-3 inches long each. (I was told this back in April not sure how accurate that is now) Anyways I have sever itching basically all over my back, it's not on the incision it's on the outside of them. If I go to scratch or get someone else too it feels like the skin is being torn it burns and is really tender! Any ideas on what I could use to get rid of this insane itching? The clinic I was in is closed until August 13th so I can't contact my nurse. Thanks!
