Scratch on forearms, have scabs. What is wrong?

a couple weeks ago I wok in the middle of the night with a need to scratch my forearms. since then it has been constant and nightly. I now have scabs, if they come off they do not bleed but look red. the area around the scabs is red and rough. it has spread to my other arm. Just forearms. I sleep with my husband and he does not have any of this. I live in Western Washington. Olympia area

Hi, it looks like an allergic reaction.
you must apply a betamethasone cream twice a day with a moistoriser on the local part and can take oral levocetrizine to relieve the itching
take care
