I recently went through, and have always gone through, a really high intensity period of itching. I would itch in my sleep and wake up with scratch marks and sometimes bleeding, etc. Becuase of this I developed rashes, and now have a multitude of scars, that are raised bumps all over my legs. Is there something that I can use to get rid of the scars. They are dark, slightly smaller than dime, shaped scars.

What other symptoms have you noticed? If just itch, maybe bedbugs or other critters. Scabies if under skin lines. See a doctor, get a diagnosis. If other symptoms, like gut pain,visual problems,concentration problems, see little white and dark specks, you need to contact the Center for Disease Control in Atlanta. There is a new infectious disease caused by nematodes that is highly contagious. There are no proper lab tests for it and there is no cure as of yet. The nematodes are bio-control for crops and golf courses to get rid of a variety of insects. Now they have started to adapt to us. Get it looked at!

well - finding out what causes your itching will protect you from creating new sores -

but cocoa butter, patience, and weekly papaya masks (papaya contains the raw ingredient in most of those 'fruit acid' preparations)

as in mash a bug enough chunk of papaya to cover the area, add a tablespoon of raw, live organic plain yogurt, and smear on skin, leave for up to 15 mintues, rinse off, exfoliate with a salt or sugar scrub the next day...

is the best you're going to get next to dermatology, which will basically do the same thing with more concentrated chemicals, eh?

vitamin E works for some people, causes increased scarring in others - but give it a try, it might even help the itching that caused the scarring.
