i have itchy legs also that i scratch, i look like im mule kicking my leg as i use the heel of my left foot to scratch which takes off layers of skin, i just had a blood test and my results did not show liver problems so what else

i have a scar on my right leg from as i call it mule kicking once they heal i can go for days with out it itching then all at once im kicking again, but i find that its from the heat and moisture in the air at my work when im home with my legs free to the air im fine if i get to hot and sweaty then im itchy

Do you have varicose(bulging) veins by any chance? I do and sometimes they itch and I scratch them to the point of bruising.
