Scratches appearing on legs?

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?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks!

One thing I might like to add is that I suffer from Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, so would the cuts/scratches be related to that at all? Thanks!
