How Do I Scratch an Itch if the Area is Numb?

For 30 years I've had a large scar on my shoulder blade that damaged the nerves in the area leaving it without a sense of touch. It's itched periodically in the past, but recently the sensation has become more regular. It's driving me crazy, because since there are no nerves in the area, I can't scratch the itch. There must be some trick I don't know about to make the itch go away. Am I right?
