Skin rash when scratching - raised skin or bumps, idea?

I have this weird thing going on...Ill get itchy out of nowhere...say on my arm. When i scratch it, the line i scratched in gets red, sometimes raised, along with some bumps along that raised red area. After a while they fade away. Allergic reaction? Hives?

Thanks for your help

Is the place that itches red before you scratch it? If it is ,it could be anything from the clothes detergent you use to something you ate. Keep track of when this happens and write down what you ate and anything that you changed, like lotions or detergents. That is so you will have something to go by if you need to see a doctor later.

If your skin isn't red before you started to itch, I would say that the scratching is causeing this kind of reaction.

it seems like somtimes the skin might get slightly irritated but hardly noticable when i scratch it. then its gets pretty red. it happens at random times, very strange...ill see if i can keep an eye on it. i was always under the impressing that if the skin gets raised with bumps that a reaction to 'something'

strange isnt it
