In my experience, itching=healing. If everything looks good I wouldn't worry. Of course some of us are sensitive to adhesive, but if that was the culprit I'd expect redness and rashiness around the site.
The strips are expected to come off on their own. You can carefully trim the ends as they come loose. Mine stayed on long enough that my PCP removed them. Be careful not to pull them off too soon.
