sweetlove is correct. Lactic acid does not make you itch, it makes your muscles a little shaky & you can get nauseated from too much lactic acid build up. That is why it's important to slow down at the end of your workout. If you don't have a "slow down" period of about 10 min, your body will have too much lactic acid build up & it can actually make you puke.
Anyhow, your itchiness. Your blood is flowing to places it hasn't in a long time. It's reaching all those little capillaries near the surface of your skin. This is why you get itchy. After a few weeks, this will no longer happen as your body will adjust to the increased blood flow. Good luck on your work outs! Congrats!
