Scratch the itch lightly and just refocus. Don't make a big deal out of it, and don't try to ignore it either.
I tried ignoring it before and it just gets worse... much the same way as if you were walking down the street and had a slight itch on your arm, you'd just scratch it and keep walking without thinking, right?
That's what you'll end up getting to. You're just becoming more aware of your body and a lot of times we have itches and tingling on the body but we don't notice until we start meditating which takes us back into the NOW and we become more aware of such things.
