Stimulating sensation when scratching rash
jah4ksu posted:
I'm fairly certain the skin rash on my shins and arms is eczyma. But I have one symptom that I have not seen in the eczyma information I've read. When it itches, and I scratch the itchy area (I try not to), the scratching doesn't just relieve the itch, it creates a stimulating, intense sensation which feels so good that I literally cannot stop scratching. Which of course causes the rash to get worse & spread. Is this a sympton of somethign other than eczyma? Thanks!
