KOMPAS.com – When it sparks, what we're going to do automatically is to draw a part of itchy skin. Behind the common habits we often do, there is a correlation between scraping and brain performance.
There are 11 facts about drawing that we will never know and we can never imagine.
1. On average we draw 97 times a day
Maybe we didn't draw the skin in a day. One study found that people, on average, drew their skin 100 times a day.
You may be doing this right now. Please draw, nobody's watching.

2. Itching because the animals and plants are triggered by toxins on the skin
When you feel itchy due to contact with an animal or plant, it is actually triggered by toxins on the skin.
Toxin secretes histamine, which is part of the body's immune response. This causes the nerve fibers to send itchy signals to the brain.
3. Itching has its own neural network
We have previously thought that itching and pain share the same path. Until 1997, although it was actually their own nerve fibers were not.
4. Itching signals move more slowly
All nerve fibers have different speeds.
Touch signal at 321 km per hour.
The pain immediately felt when you accidentally touched a hot stove reacts at 128 km per hour.
The itching moves at a speed of only 2 miles or 3 km per hour, slower than the speed of a walking person.
5. Infectious itching, the same flexion
Scientists have demonstrated this by showing video footage of mice following the itching of other mice.
When the first group was drawn, the remaining mice were involved in scratching.
6. Infectious scratches contain a small portion of the brain called the suprachiasmatic core.
Parts of the brain, called the suprachiasmatic nucleus, are suspected to be involved. However, neurologists still do not know how this part of the brain affects scratching and spreading.
7. Best Way to Get Rid of Itching
Scratching, & # 39; invasive, & # 39; is the best way to deal with.
This helps to banish annoying insects or poisonous plants.
Garukan also allows the expansion of blood vessels and purifies white blood cells and plasma flow from toxins.
This is what causes the skin to become red and stained.
8. Scratching secretes serotonin in the brain because it feels good.
Serotonin is a neurotransmitter where scientists follow happiness.
The more serotonin flows in your body, the happier you are. It is not surprising that sometimes it is difficult to stop scratching.
9. The best place to repaint the ankle
According to a published study Journal of British Dermatology In 2012, itching was often felt on the ankles.
It is also a pleasure point of scratching and is usually made the longest.
To be honest, did you draw your wrist to be sure?
10. How much to draw, so itchy
Watch out for itching scratch cycles!
Scratching the skin, additional histamine empties, sends more itchy signals to the brain.
If you do too much, the skin breaks down, causing infection and scabies.

11. itchy scratch cycle
The itch scratching cycle is a problem faced by skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema.
Antihistamines are usually given to reduce the effect of histamine and try to relieve itching.
12. Chronic itching as exhausting as chronic pain
Medical researchers find those who experience relentless pruritus at the same level of discomfort and depression as chronic illness patients.
According to a study published in the Journal of Dermatology, people who have suffered from itching for weeks or even years experience serious problems as chronic pain patients.
In fact, the authors say that chronic itching is "the same as the pain of the skin."
And not only that, – the ongoing itching should not be ignored. It is associated with various diseases such as chronic itching, liver gland problems and lymphoma.
