mysterious scratches on arms and legs
nbreese posted:
Lately I've been getting scratches on my legs and arms (mainly), they appear after I wake up from sleeping. I do scratch myself to the point I get scratches, but only on my legs. The scratches on my legs are really bad and big. I am concerned on how this is happening without me even touching my arms. When I wake up i feel a sting and see that my skin is red and picked at. Any ideas of what is going on?
