There is a good possibility that something is making you itch at night, and you are scratching yourself in your sleep. There can be several different
things that causes this, but there is a way you can test it. Put on some gloves before you go to bed, you can even lightly wrap them at the wrists
with some duct tape if you think you will pull them off (not so tight that it restricts circulation obviously). If you wake up with no scratches then
you need to start looking for the cause of what is making you itch in your sleep. It could be a bed bugs or other insects, your laundry detergent that
you are using on your sheets, or any of a hundred other things.
