Answer #2

because the skin underneath them are healing. you have to remember that under the scab, the skin is broken, and it regrows in order for the scab to fall off.

Answer #3

your skin is pliant and ductile; the scab, not so much. In the course of normal activity, your skin tries to bend and stretch, but the scab can’t move with it, so it pulls at your skin where it’s edges are latched onto your skin cells. That’s what creates the itchiness.
