Hi I am a 28yr old female and today I noticed that my legs, more my right one, are covered in very noticeable scratches as if a cat has been scratching me.
The only thing I know that may have caused them is my shaver but it is a rechargeable one and even though it was at full charge when I used it, it doesn't usually create cuts or scratches on my skin, just redness, which is why I doubt it's my shaver at all.
Even my boyfriend is concerned about them, what are they and should I see my doctor?
