Why do you scratch an itch?
Itching usually prompts scratching, which can sometimes lead to a vicious itch-scratch cycle. Scratching can initially feel satisfying, but prolonged scratching just leaves you with irritated skin that can still itch and often worsens the itching itself. Since scratching provides only temporary relief and doesn't promote healing of the underlying problem, it is best to avoid scratching if at all possible. If scratching breaks open the skin, bacterial infection can set in known as secondary infection. And if scratching continues for many months or years, the area that is scratched may develop thickened skin (lichenification) or pigmentation that darkens the area.

Asked in Addictions
Can you be addicted to scratching?
Well i guess in a way you could become addicted to scratching it depends on what aspect. Addictions means your body has become hooked on it and begins to punish you for not supplying the means to satisfy it. Scratching can't really be an addictive type thing because the body only usually triggers it for an itch or for a sexual type action though it feels good when you scratch an itch your not really addicted because your not there for hours scratching that spot non stop
