Picking really increases risk for scarring. :(

Ice the spots, that will help with itching and inflammation. If it's hard to resist the picking, put bandaids on each spot! That kind of reminds you not to pick and you have to go to slightly more trouble to pick, too.

If the itching continues and it's a new symptom, you might want to check with your doc about whether any of the meds might be causing the itching. At night you could take Benadryl, claritin, zyrtec, something like that to help with the histamine response.
