Hello. Thank you for posting.

Usually, burning and itching occur at the acute stage: A pool of blood is created from broken blood vessels around the bone. This pool of blood starts to produce bone cells within the first seven days. In the second week, the bone starts to knit. This process can cause discomfort and itching, especially at night.  Nerve damage could also account for the itching and burning. If it's mild, it might be part of the healing process.  What does your doctor say? He or she would be the best one to ask as they know and specifics of your condition, such as the severity of the break.
