Question Unusual Skin & Scalp Scabs appearing from nowhere

[B][COLOR="DarkRed"]Greetings and thanks for reading this and helping me understand the root of my problem.[/COLOR][/B]

[B]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.[/B] 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.

[B][COLOR="DarkRed"]ADDITIONALY[/COLOR][/B], [B]AL I am also getting small scabs (similar to a regular scab where a sore is healing, [COLOR="DarkRed"]that seem to appear from nowhere[/COLOR] on my arms and legs (lower arms and hands and lower leg below the knee and up to (not including) the foot[/B].

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.

[B][/B]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.

[B]Could the cause be from a reaction ofany of these medications [B]OR[/B] could I be scratching myself[B] during sleep [/B]to cause the scabs to appear? when I wake up??? OR is is this something else?? [/B]

Thanks for sharing any information or thoughts that you may have.
