Meaning of Itch
Itch (Latin: pruritus) is a sensation that causes the desire or reflex to scratch. Itch has resisted many attempts to classify it as any one type of sensory experience. Modern science has shown that itch has many similarities to pain, and while both are unpleasant sensory experiences, their behavioral response patterns are different. Pain creates a withdrawal reflex, while itch leads to a scratch reflex. - See link


Itch in Spanish is Picor (prurito)
El prurito es un hormigueo peculiar o irritación incómoda de la piel que conlleva un deseo de rascar la parte en cuestión. Comúnmente se llama picor, picazón o comezón (en algunos países se llama rasquiña o piquiña, si bien estos términos suelen ser peyorativos). - See link
