Do Herpes Itch?

I am extremely itchy in my genital area and I think it could be herpes but how can I know.
I am scared because I don't know what's going on with me. My sister told me that maybe is not herpes and it's just crabs.
I don't have hair in the area right now but i know crabs don't need hair to be down there.
So my question is, do herpes itch?

The only time I'll tell someone it's most likely not herpes is if they have some bumps that pop like a pimple because herpes doesn't have a "head" like a zit has. My husbands don't hurt or itch, he just gets a red spot no bigger than a mosquito bite.

The first attack of herpes usually follows this course:

Skin on or near the sex organ becomes inflamed. Skin may burn, itch or be painful.
Blister-like sores appear on or near the sex organs.
Sores open, scab over, and then heal.
Symptoms that may also be present when the virus first appears include:

Swollen glands
Fever
Headache
Burning when passing urine
Muscle aches

yes! In most cases, herpes lessions do itch on occasions, not always but it is a symptom of herpes.
Small red areas appear that are sensitive, itchy, or painful. Small blisters filled with fluid form in the same area.
