I know I’m doing it in my sleep as I wake up with cuts on my forehead and it’s really distressing as I don’t know what it means

Cut your nails? I have eczema and when I was younger I would constantly itch in my sleep and I'd have scratches on my arms and legs and bloody sheets when I woke up. Mum had to bandage my arms and legs to stop me from itching at night

It means you should see a professional for a solution to stop your sleeping behaviour. Since it got to do with your sleeping behaviour perhaps it’s sleep waking kind of medical area? I mean GP can always send you to a referral

Is that it?

Sounds terrible, I know someone who was bullied because they had eczema

I have short nails as I have just cut them, I don’t have eczema but that must mean I’m purposefully doing it in my sleep

I think it might relate to my mental health problems but I’m unsure as to whether I should see someone about it

A deep psychological issue

What advice did your parents/guardians give/ what did they say?

What have you done so far to try and stop it?

My parents said it’s probably nothing but its happening quite a lot, there’s nothing I can do to stop it, I even cut my nails but woke up this morning again with a cut

Yes. It will stop them hurting themselves. I know little kids with eczema whose parents make them wear gloves to bed - there are thin bamboo gloves you can buy for this purpose.

I would’ve thought that an issue such as this would be psychological?

Maybe but it could just be something in your sleep

I don’t have eczema or any present skin condition though
