Fetch me the handkerchief-my mind misgives! (III.iv.86)
Alas, what does this gentleman conceive? (IV.ii.102)
To whom, my lord? With Whom? How am i false? (IV.ii.43)

So this conflict in Act III, scene iv, is Person vs. Person, in this case, it's Othello vs. Desdemona. According to this scene, Othello is mad at Desdemona because she doesn't have the handkerchief. The handkerchief missing adds to the upcoming chaos in the play. According to the magical powers of the handkerchief, it was given to Desdemona by Othello, as a token of his love, and to their new beginnings as husband and wife. However, the meaning of the handkerchief is viewed differently in various characters perspectives. Reaching the hands of most of the characters, this item results in a sense of irony. If Desdemona lost it, Othello claims is to lose his love for her. Upon discovering it to be suddenly misplaced, this only continues to benefit Iago, and the revenge he sets to pursue. With the loss of the handkerchief, it only adds more strain onto the marriage of Desdemona and Othello. Throughout the story, the handkerchief is observed to be Iago’s secret weapon for his revenge. With it, Iago is able to double-cross the people that seem to get in his way of his plan. Many of his intentions are accomplished with the help of his wife, Emilia because he requests for her to retrieve the handkerchief for him and she obeys despite knowing what she’s really doing for Iago and how it can affect the future actions of the play.
The conflict shown above is present in Act IV, scene ii, and it is also Person vs. Person. According to the scene, Othello yells at Desdemona for being unfaithful to him. This enhances the plot because Othello grows furious with Desdemona which foreshadows what he might to do her later on. He has even mentioned that he wanted to kill her due to her unfaithfulness. When he says that she is "unfaithful as hell" he means that her unfaithfulness has grown to an extent that it is just plain evil and has made Othello suffer. Emilia, Iago's wife, is also present in this scene and she gives her opinion towards Othello's anger and says that he is jealous and is being manipulated by someone (Iago) but Emilia does not know who. This foreshadows how Emilia, as well as Othello and Desdemona, might find out who is in fact behind all this but maybe after things are too late...
The conflict shown above is in Act III, scene iii, and it is a Person vs. Self type of conflict. In this scene, Othello is talking with Iago about Desdemona's unfaithfulness. This is a Person vs. Self conflict because Othello is "fighting" with his conscience because he doesn't know what to do about the accusations towards Desdemona's unfaithfulness. This shows how Othello is also being manipulated by Iago because Iago uses the handkerchief as evidence for Desdemona's unfaithfulness and the handkerchief is a symbol of Othello's love towards her. Also, the important role of the handkerchief is that since the handkerchief was the first gift Desdemona received from Othello, she keeps it to remind her constantly that it is a symbol of Othello’s love towards her. Iago now manipulates the handkerchief so that Othello comes to see it as a symbol of Desdemona herself and her faith. By taking possession of it, Iago is able to convert it into evidence of her unfaithfulness. Now, Othello has to make a choice on whether to believe Iago and his evidence or believe his beloved wife. This creates suspense in the play and the readers wait on what will hppen next.
