Mar 12, 2018 · Brachioradial pruritus. (severe itching on forearms and neck, no rash). in Skin Health

BRP -Brachioradial Pruitius- I have had if for 8 plus years. Have tried to treat the symptoms instead of get to the root of the problem of why I have this. I have seen 2 general family doctors, dermatologist, neurologist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, and a specialist (which confirmed BRP) I have taken over the counter creams & meds as well as perscribed medicine like gapapentin, doxepin, and antibiotics when the scratching on my arms become infected. I was told you could have BRP for either 2 different reasons, either a nerve compression of your spine (C5 – C7) or prolong exposure to the sun. If the itching occurs on both arms it's usually the compression not the sun exposure. Although I use to lay in the sun as a teen all day with baby oil!!!! mine is on both arms. I have decided to visit a NUCCA specialist to get to the root of the problem. My symptoms went from quarterly to monthly to now daily!! At my wits end where like others, only ice packs have helped consistently but how inconvenient!!! will keep you posted on my findings.
