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.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Skin Health group.

I will be 59 in Jan. Mine started probably about 8 yrs ago if I remember correctly. It’s random and can go for a long stretch he without it like many months and then BAM! I’ve tried Aloe directly from the plant, calamine lotion, aloe in a bottle, medicated powder.. with only a slight bit of diff but I would say that the Dermatologist gave me a steroid based prescription that is a clear ointment and I think it helped a little too. He hadn’t prescribed it for this but for a little Ezema on the back of my forearms but also this itch thing hasn’t been diagnosed.

Mine Will calm down for a couple of days after I apply a water bottle full of ice cubes all night on my forarm. I fall asleep with the bag of ice againt the itch. I must numb it into submission. I’ve tries every ointment without any luck

I will scratch like mad! But it has to just go away on its own. It gets red from scratching so much and like you, no rash, NOTHING there when it strikes!

I have used a chiropractor with some success.

Oh, it’s real, alright!!!! Very very real!! Although there is no rash, I often leave marks on my skin where I scratch and dig until I bleed. I have scars from scratching.

I’ve done THE EXACT SAME THING! During our last hurricane here in FL, Irma, when we had no ice, I thought I would literally go out of my mind.

Hi @donnany. Welcome! Happy to have you here.

That’s great you have had success with your Chiropractor. What kind of regimen does he/she have you on?

@thedinnymurph, have you considered Chiropractic care? I would be curious to know if acupuncture would help?

I leave red marks as well. It’s very intense and very crazy.
