Scratching & Picking

My 2 yr old grandson started to constantly scratch his legs & arms until it starts to bleed. Then he starts to pick @ the scratches causing it to bleed more. Thought it was insect allergies. Nope, he plays outside, takes a shower & has fun. No picking or scratching but I have noticed he only does the scratching when hes upset about something. Whether it's urging up his toys or waking up for daycare. Anyone been thru this?

The first place to go would be the doctor!
Get a referral to a skin specialist. You need to find the actual cause and just because you can't see anything that would cause it, doesn't mean he isn't allergic to something around him.
