I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition!

How about this speculation: You scratched it too hard so the yuckky stuff inside comes out and gets onto your fingers, then your fingers spreads the yuckky stuff over your skin and another itch forms?
It could be some microbe thingie!
Doc B, I get exactly the same problem with those pesky itches, and have always put it down to some sort of inter-nerve connections. A chap who was into foot massage/reflexology once went into a long explanation of this phenomena, but lost me somewhere along the line. He was giving me a reflexology session at the time and I fell asleep on him... well, not exactly 'ON' him, but you get my drift. 
Do you have any idea how the itch got there in the first place? Mosquito? Fleas?
Couldn't think of the word I wanted last time, but the theory the reflexologist had about itches was that they (the itch sites) were connected via the meridian lines... or something like that. 
I think Neil started a thread...... something about why one scratch begats aother etc..... something like that.
