Dry blood around mouth and neck?

I often wake up in the morning to find my sphynx with dry blood around her face and neck. I was thinking she might be scratching too much and/or her skin is too dry. I don't see her scratching these areas excessively during the day. Any help or recommendations appreciated. Thank you.

My boy gets this all of the time. I think from rubbing on stuff. 2 days later the scabs fall off. I never find my boy itching.

Leo our male also gets that, I wouldn't be too concerned. :)

That is good to hear thanks. It doesn't seem to bother her. So as long as it isn't a sign of something more serious I am not too worried.
