Over the past few months I have developed random scratch-like marks on my body. They seem to appear out of nowhere, with no required stimuli. For example, I will be sitting at the computer all day in a short sleeved shirt, and they just pop up on my arms out of nowhere. I literally watch as they appear.
I suppose they can appear anywhere on me, but prominently they've been on my shoulders, arms and belly.
They do not itch or hurt; there's no kind of forewarning that I'm going to get them. They just appear. They are also raised slightly. They go away after a few hours.
I've also noticed whenever they appear I feel kind of groggy and tired.
I've been accused of scratching myself. Well, that theory doesn't work for two reasons: 1) 90% of the time, I do not have nails and 2) I've tried scratching myself to reproduce the same results and it doesn't look the same. Also, if I had that bad of an itch I think I'd remember scratching it that violently.
I do not believe I have Lymes, an autoimmune condition or any other kind of skin condition that could cause this. I've never had problems like this before. Also, they're not stretch marks, because I am a pretty thin person with little to no fat over my bones!
I've tried Zyrtec and Benadryl, and neither worked.
I've been documenting my journey here (http://vulpes-roots....ed/mystery-rash).
As you can see, some are short, and some are very long. Some are in a kind of cluster, some are parallel, and some "originate" from a certain point.
Now, some further research has shown me that many people are facing the same exact problem:
-A simple "unexplained scratches" in Google Images will show you the same results I have
-http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Dermatology/Unexplained-scratches-appearing-on-body/show/739845?page=1 has MANY people with the same problem
But there are no solid answers as to why this happens. Some even go as far as saying it is a paranormal event. I'm neither here nor there when it comes to the paranormal. I used to be big on New Age things, but when I started questioning my faith most of the paranormal stuff went out the door with it.
Others say it's a conspiracy theory, something to do with hybrids and cloning.
This interests me. Could I really have a demon following me around?! What am I supposed to do?
As a side note I'm also very into taxidermy. I won't rule out that maybe an animal on the other side is mad at me, haha.
