Random Itch spot on back... worry or not worry?

Postby amikam » Sat Oct 06, 2012 5:05 am

Okay so I have this itchy spot on my back... its been there for maybe years. Every day at some point it will itch. There are no bites no rash no bumps.. nothing. Its so common to me I can say to my boyfriend "itch spot" and he knows right where to scratch. I have just always assumed it was dry skin or something.. but its not flakey or anything. It wasn't until recently that I started to think.. maybe this is kinda weird? Its on my upper right shoulder and I was just wondering... should I be concerned? In my high school days I was on colorguard and used to be in the sun a lot... but I am very fair skinned and ALWAYS apply lots of sun block. Cancer runs wild in my family too.... so am I just paranoid.. are there other people out there with "itch spots?"
