What's HA?

Well after telling my family and showing them the scabs that I have, my dad asked me if I want a checkup with a psychologist (I think I'm losing it)
After finding out that our area is surrounded with bats, I am now too paranoid to go out at night and also worried about sleeping with the windows open

What are the symptoms of a bat bite anyway? Here in the Philippines, you don't hear much about bat rabies cases especially in the city (it's mostly dogs & cats)... But that doesn't mean it's not possible

Yeah I'm very much aware that injuries turns to scab because the skin is healing... But I am more concerned about where the "bite" came from (what bit me) and/or are there any possibilities that it is not an animal/insect bite?

There's the answer. You had a persistent itch (doesn't matter why) and scratched it hard enough to cause the wound. Mystery solved. No invisible rats or bats
