Itchy skin is a status effect caused by walking through or standing in the spores released by various Brooding Mushrooms. It marks the preliminary effects of Fungal Infections. Honey or Yuckwheat can only prevent itchy skin from developing in the first place. Once itchy skin has started to develop, the only way to get out of it is to start looking for its cure.
It should be noted that the traditional recipe of Kyakukya called "Mulled Mushroom Cider" reduces the chances of itchy skin developing into a fungal infection by 75%. It can be obtained from Mayor Nuntu and can be cooked at campfires with the right ingredients. For those who have not invested points into cooking, the stove located in Kyakukya will always have a serving of Mulled Mushroom Cider which the player can eat.
