How often does it come back, or how long does it take to go away? It could be an allergy to washing powder, pollen, dust mites... anything. It wouldn't do any harm to talk to a doctor about it.

If you scratch a lot anyway, you're more likely to get a rash. But if your skin is itchy for no apparent reason it's probably a reaction to something.

Take care

I had that same problem. It could be a number of things. Did you change laundry soap, body soap, and/or lotion?

That always can play a huge factor in it, especially if you have sensitive skin. I think you should see good ol' doc
to see if there is anything they can do. If it itches so bad that you are scabbing.. then it's doctor worthy.

Hey there,

It could just be a little bit of eczema! Have you recently changed your soap or anything? There's so many things it could be. It could be that you're sensitive to something. If you're worried I would recommend seeing your doctor and asking what he suggests.

I have that same exact problem...my skin is one giant scab after I itch.
I would definitely suggest getting checked out.
The doctor told me I have dermographism, eczema and allergies to things.
So far I know I'm seriously allergic to mosquitoes (my skin starts to swell and fill with pus). I also have very sensitive skin (no perfume, glue, scented laundry detergent etc...)
The dermatologist also told me I have mild allergies to nuts, tomatoes, and strawberries. Out of all of those, I can't have any kind of nut butter, especially hazelnut butter. My lips start to swell if I do.
So...
What I'm getting at is maybe you should exclude nuts, tomatoes, and strawberries.
If you feel better, it means you have dermographism. Again, I'm not a doctor.

Also, if you're feeling absolutely horrible, try hydrocortisone. Its over the counter, so you can get it easily.

OK hun, let us know if you're OK. It could be insect bites but that doesn't explain why you get it so often, so you're doing the right thing to get it checked out. Take care.

I get those sometimes too...I don't know what they are either.
They might be from something pressing on the area really hard.
