Brachioradial pruritus. (severe itching on forearms and neck, no rash).

Posted by Patrick Cotter @patrickcotter, Mar 19, 2012

Does anyone know of this. I think its rare but does exist. My neurologist does not know about this. I have compression between my c5 and c6 cervical disk and have had alot of sun damage to my skin.

@lesa55

I have had it for 4 years now. Found relief at Mayo . The gave me an RX of Katamine/Amatripoline. It helps so I can sleep. Also ice packs help a bunch

After trying many types of lotions & creams prescribed by my dermatologist & all was short relief until I met a woman who has done a lot of researching BP. She found a long lasting cure in DoTerra essential oils. Combining DDR Prime oil & Copaiba oil in a veggie capsule and take one 3x daily. When I started the regimen over a year ago now, within one week I was itch free and have been ever since.
I truly believe it will work for you too.

What a wonderful breakthrough! Who would I need to consult to make sure that the essential oils don’t interfere with my medications? Our doctors aren’t knowledgeable.

If the medication isn’t working for you, then you probably should stop taking them and try the oils instead.

I’m referring to my heart meds,etc.

How much do you put in each capsule? Cymbalta is working for me, but I’m unable to use lotions with itching or stinging. My skin is dry, so this is a problem.

Hello All. First time I am on here posting anything, Looked over the site and I have to say my wife has the same problems that many of you have. She would be typing this but she is nearly blind, so I am doing this on my own. At first it was thought maybe she was Gluten intolerant and after eating gluten free foods for a few months that did not help at all. My wife has been suffering from BRP for I would have to say at least 25 years. It took a long time for someone to diagnose it . Once diagnosed she tried the acupuncture, light therapy and neither of these worked. . Went to about 3 different Dermatologists and two different allergists. Eventually someone said it was BRP. She had a list of chemicals to avoid and a list of products also. many shampoos, soaps, skin creams you name it. We purchased only those items in health food stores and read many labels. So after many cremes, lotions, medications taken by injection still nothing helps. The results are temporary. Add to this my drug plan dropped some of the items she used. So injections were costing the drug supplier 2K a month for 2 injections. These did not help. SO Ilyne decided to experiment on her own. She found that Capzasin ( someone on here mentioned it) worked temporarily for her. That along with Physiogel (recommended by the Dermatologist) only found on Amazon and comes from Asia or Europe depending which vender was filling the request. Those two together do offer relief. Then it was suggested she try Medical marijuana. That did not help other though some of the Derms other patients were successful with it.,

Last night t as I was passing t he bathroom, my wife was putting some medication on and I noticed her shoulders and upper back had so many sores, she had scratched them raw. I told her I would help her, got CBD oil – its only temporary but she said that with the Capzasin seemed to help..

Someone on this mentioned : Saniona announces successful completion of preclinical development of SAN711- I am sending this link to her Dermatologist for his review.

Mayo Clinic dermatology prescribed ketomine compound lotion for me. It works!!

@needahelp @bobbiellen and @enoughlaready that's great that you all have found different, but successful ways of treating your brachioradial pruritus! I'm sure this is news that @pyfm @njcarolnjn and @montana_mom8 would find encouraging.

@needahelp when the itching starts, how long does it take to go away? Is just one dose of zyrtec enough?
@bobbiellen how has the low carb diet affected your symptoms?

Zyrtec won’t help until you get it under control. When I use lotion (at night) & the itch/ stinging starts, I use Zyrtec. Before the Cymbalta & physical therapy I was put on Zyrtec twice a day, but it didn’t help. I think it helps at night if I need it now & then. CBD interferes with heart meds, so I cannot try it.

Thanks for the info. my wife had a compound prescription with Amylripoline with some type of cream. . (I know I misspelled that). It worked for her but then the drug plan would no longer pay for it because they said they could not guarantee the safety of the compound since it came from another source. I think another reason was the cost was about 700.00 a month. I would be willing to pay out of pocket for the medication you suggested – any idea what it costs?
