Skin Problems

Post by BioConfused » Fri Sep 07, 2007 4:08 am

Im not sure if this is really a biology question, i was just wondering if anyone could give me a good explanation to why does my skin bump up whenever i scratch myself (NO NOT THE EMO WAY) like scratching my skin, and a few minutes later bumps come up at the area and go down after a few more minutes.

SERIOUS QUESTION

Basically, what Mith said.

You scratch, the area may go white where dry skin comes away then red and sometimes raised.

^^One of my ex-girlfriends said that. I stress the ex part.
