15 PrionBacon Itching is caused by very light motion on your skin. It probably evolved so that you will notice very slight movements from insects on your skin so that you can swat or scratch the area to remove them. After your wound seals with a scab, the wounded region is filled with a fiber mesh by specialized cells known as fibroblasts. These meshes will slowly pull together over time as the wound heals. However, this small pull sometimes triggers the same nerves that send out the itching signal! This makes you want to scratch at the scab which is not conductive to healing.
4 Darkbalmunk Cause the healing process involves the nerves that cause us pain. Itching is cause my smaller pain impulses so stabbing is painful but itching is a much smaller scale pain which is confusing but yeah if we have a scale of 0 ----- 5 ----- 10 of pain then itching is 0.1 on the pain meter. so while damage is healing under that scab skin is reforming when it finishes healing the scab in most cases is peeling or slowly detaching thats why it hurts to pull it off even though there is skin under it. so while its healing the edges are slowly peeling away and causes small pain reception causing you to itch.
