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

Hi moylandavis, can you tell me which Facebook group for Itch with no rash, you view? I am trying to see that particular page but cannot find it.
I have some kind of neuropathic ITCH w/n rash that has come back to my forearm and now my feet get extremely HOT and tingling in the night. This nightmare is keeping me awake again. I tried using creams but no pills or medication except this week I am trying ALA antioxidant (200 mg), hoping for something good! Thanks!

I have had BRP in January-March for two years now. I also have osteoarthritis and limited range of motion in my neck. I am a 64 yo woman.
The only thing that has helped me is to take a shower and move my arms under water that is considerably hotter than I can stand. I feel the itching and relief in that order as I do so and I continue this until the itching is gone. This is currently providing substantial relief for 2-3 full days and I then repeat the process. I follow the shower with slathering Cetaphil moisturizing cream (not the lotion) on both arms.
I read a recommendation for the (almost scalding) water in a blog last year and am so so thankful for the relief it provides.
All the very best.
Hi, I to have BRP. I’m 81 and have had BRP for some 5 years. My go to relief is the complete opposite, "ice cold water" and I mean cold. Relief comes in about 2 minutes and use to last for a day or so now relief is more like 6 to 12 hrs. I’m further dealing with Neuropathic Pruritus, Notalgia Paresthetica. Probably my last line of defense is "guided meditation". A few years ago I would continue telling my self "there are worse things out there", now ? not quite so sure.
