  • Mood:

"itching something" vs. something itching

I saw a question posed in a magazine from someone writing in (theoretically) that talked about how she "itches her dry skin" and the complications that arise thereafter.

Doesn't the dry skin itch, and then she scratches it? Is this usage unique to a particular geographic area, or is it incorrect no matter where you go?

Thanks.
