Good afternoon Susila, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Itchiness accompanied by itching can be caused by various diseases such as chickenpox, fungal infections of the skin, bacterial infections of the skin (pyoderma), wounds that have dried up, or reaction of skin allergies. These symptoms need to be remembered not related at all to HIV, because itching and ulceration are not included in the symptoms that can be caused by HIV infection but HIV infection can increase the risk of other diseases in these sufferers.
In addition, HIV infection cannot be stated solely based on complaints, but requires a clear and specific confirmation check to prove whether the person has HIV or not.
Therefore, for your complaint, you should check with your doctor first. Your doctor will conduct further tests regarding the condition of your current complaint and also other complaints that may accompany. Your doctor may also ask you to undergo an HIV test if there are other symptoms that support the direction of HIV infection or if you really want to do the examination voluntarily.
For now, you should not scratch or apply any substance to the wound until there is clear advice from the doctor because both of these things can aggravate the complaint. It is also recommended to keep yourself from contact with blood or bodily fluids (vaginal fluid / sperm) from people with HIV, if it requires contact with these two ingredients, use personal protective equipment.

I hope this helps.
