I have what looks like a severe case of psoriasis covering 1/2 my ankle, shin and calf of one leg and the shin of the other leg. It occasionally it will itch, I fight to leave it alone, literally, but the feeling I get when I scratch builds into what I swear is an orgasm! Not to be xxx rated, but I'm telling you, scathing my legs is better than sex. And I will scratch til they bleed, and continue to scratch til the feeling turns to burning and throbbing. When all my little sores scab over, those will itch 10x more intense, if you can imagine that! Im embarrassed that I can't stop myself and my poor legs look so torn up. Could it be a nerve thing, a psoriasis thing!? We are talking some overly sensitive nerve endings, here! Could anybody shed some light on this, I'm half nuts.

    Well,an orgasm affects certain nerves and is pleasurable.  Sometimes scratching to excess can be the same,especially if its overriding the itching sensation.

    More important...have you been to a doctor for advice on this itching?  Please dont scratch yourself until it bleeds...this is not good for your skin and could lead to ulceration ,especially on your ankle/shin and calf. Do see a doctor and get some treatment. Are you just assuming its psoriasis? It could be many other things so its important to get a proper diagnosis.

      Dear Marina Dee,

      Yes I went to a Dr and told her I thought I might have scabies. She barely glanced at my arms and said "It could very well be!" And proceeded to prescribe me medicine for scabies. She didn't even look at my legs!

      I've had psoriasis off and on since high school, it would appear on all my 'bendable' parts only (knees, elbows, knuckles etc).

      Good news is I've got the itching under control, everyone I start to scratch, I reach for this spray my girl friend mixed up for me. Hymalayan sea salt and water. My itching is gone.

      Thank you for your reply.

    Ha ha ha yes, the scratching of very dry skin can be very liberating, but you need to do it in small doses as too much and you will draw blood leaving the infection window wide open. When you get the urge to scratch apply a cool moisturiser and leave to be absorbed, the feeling should pass quite quick.

    I think a severe case of psoriasis is more than 3 handspan

    I have that on the bottoms of my feet and on top at a pinpoint spot where the toes meet. Sometimes on the tips of my toes just under the front of the nail. Have described it to my doctor that scratching (or spraying only on those spots a fine point of hot water in the shower) is akin to a prolonged orgasm. The weird thing is for me ...when the area is not touched it doesn't it....touch it and I have to claw.
