Skin damage can cause pigmentation loss that usually corrects itself after time. Exposure to sun usually causes your skin to darken, but it may be possible that a sunburn could be the cause of this lightening. If you are worried about your symptoms (or if they are worsening) it would be a good idea to make an appointment with your doctor or a dermatologist for a proper diagnosis.
Do you notice a time of day or a place where the itching seems to be worse? Have you started using any new soaps, lotions, perfumes or laundry detergents? Do you have a pet that you could be allergic to or that may have fleas? Or is there the possibility that there are mites or scabies in your house? It might be a good idea to make an appointment with a dermatologist to determine what is causing this itching. Please let us know how you are doing.
Are you still experiencing these symptoms? If so, I would suggest making an appointment to see your doctor or a dermatologist (if you haven't already). It's possible that these are after effects of your allergic reaction (or a continuation of it). Your doctor may be able to diagnose what is happening and have something that will give you relief from the symptoms you describe. Please let us know how you are doing!
