Scratching at night

I am 16 years old and have always been scratching in my sleep. Although, over the past few months, it has got a lot worse and i end up with a few scratches on my body a night. I woke up this morning to find 7 long scratches on my thighs. 3 of which are deep and 1 is about 2-3 inches long. Sometimes when i wake up, they are on my belly, abdomen, thighs and back (higher +lower).
For extra information, My family tell me that i scream things in the night about 2 times a week and i always sleep talk. I cant seem to stop scratching and it is getting really agrivating. Especially with all the scars over my body!
Does anyone have any ideas about what it can be and any treatment or reccomendations they have?
