My 18 month old since she was a few months old has had issues with scratching herself. Now i will say, its not as bad as it used to be since she used to leave marks all over her body and have scabs. Right now it tends to only be when we change her diaper she'll get her hand and scratch at her thigh, stomach, even her privates. We have spoken with her therapist's, her pediatrician, even her neurosurgeon... & we've rubbed wash clothes on her stomach, the obvious of giving her something to hold while we change her, etc... we've tried a lot and nothing seems to work. She still just wants to scratch. They have told us they think its just an extra sensory thing, but i dont want her getting older and just scratching... Any suggestions?
