Supposedly there is a condition where a person will hallucinate (sp?) and think that bugs are crawling out of their skin when they scratch it? I mean they scratch until they make themselves raw.

I actually saw that show on tv. It is a very strange disease. It seems like no one knows much about it. How horrible. My dad never had this, but he did have a skin disease growing up that was really bad. He still battled with itching as an adult and when he was a truck driver he says he used to wake up with his legs sticking straight up in the air and he had scratched his legs raw till they were bleeding. He still has to keep his head and arms,etc. covered up to this day.
