Greetings and thanks for reading this and helping me understand the root of my problem.
For about the last 15 months, I have had sporadic episodes of very small bumps appearing on my scalp and also small scabs appearing on my arms and legs. I am unsure how the scabs got to appear.
The bumps on my scalp usually remain for approx 1 month unless I continually pick at them.
This scenarioo of the scalp bumps appearing has happened 2 or 3 times over the last 15 months.
ADDITIONALY, AL I am also getting small scabs (similar to a regular scab where a sore is healing, that seem to appear from nowhere on my arms and legs (lower arms and hands and lower leg below the knee and up to (not including) the foot.
I have been picking at them. This makes the scabs stay around a long time. If I do not pick, they eventually heal and disappear. Thse scabs just appear on different locations of my arms and legs and I can have a number of them simultaneously. They last about a month if I do NOT pick at them. After a few months they re-appear.
These scabs seem to appear for no reason and usually continue forming for about a month or so. The timing of the bumps on my scalp is simulataneous with mand and leg issues.
I have a lot of stress that I am dealing with - more on a subconcious level than a concious one. I also have type 1 Diabetes and I am recently on Wellbutrin, but this problem occurred before I used Wellbutrin. I also use Levothyroid, Lipitor and a variety of Vitamins, Fish Oil and Folic Acid as well as Hydrochlorothiazide.
Could the cause be from a reaction ofany of these medications OR could I be scratching myself during sleep to cause the scabs to appear? when I wake up??? OR is is this something else??
Thanks for sharing any information or thoughts that you may have.
Re: Unusual Skin & Scalp Scabs appearing from nowhere
