Fri, Jun 21 11:43pm · Brachioradial pruritus. (severe itching on forearms and neck, no rash). in Skin Health

I've doesn't work, but one Dr prescribed pain crean, which is aspercreme.For some reason the roll on aspercream makes it worse, so just get the lotion. It does burn a little of there's a cut, but it's relive cause it goes right away. This has really helped along with the prescrip. triacinolone cream. Nothing is perfect, but it helps. I am asleep before my head hits the pillow, so need nothing for help.but don't drink coffee. Zyrtec did nothin g.

I also have those compressions, finally after itching since the 1980's on forearms only, both arms scar from scratching so. Had to get a Dr in 2000 for reliefe, she prescribed hydroxyzine, saved me some. find here the brachioradial preuritis, my primary thinks pinched nerve in neck.
Sun damage is also a symptom of this and can contribute. But not me. Now know why have trouble getting it on pillow right. Not one neuro, dermatologist, not one specialists could tell me why I have other while I bled. I look online here and find it.

Mon, Apr 29 4:39pm · MGUS in Blood Cancers & Disorders

I was diagnosed in 2005 with smoldering mgus. I see the cancer Dr twice yearly for labs, and I have had anemia and had an iron infusion. If I move I will be told oh once a year is enough, then I see another am told twice a year. I would rather be safe. I have 4 rare diseases and about 5 autoimmunes though and ms and it seems every couple of years another diagnosis. But I get infections and inflammation which are now being said to cause so many diseases. It is frustrating, but so are a lot of problems in life, so I am happy to have this support.

That is true, but MD's do not do they a therapy. DO's are trained in this therapy only, it's part of their training.

Options do nothing, dermatologists think you have dry skin. I used one for years, then stopped for the rest. They assume you don't know the difference which is typical. I had a cervical and brain mri for something else a few months earlier and re-read it. I have spent a lifetime doing research, discovering the problem and confirming it with doctors. Frustrating I have had to do all the research for all my illnesses. Not sure why one dermatologist did not figure it out. All I got was try light therapy but that will cause issues with lupus. Plus insurance didn't cover it.

When contacted by the author, Professor Zochodne replied: “I can indicate that I have no interest in it, have not endorsed it or plan to endorse it and am disappointed our work would be quoted for something without evidence.”
Also Dr Geoffrey Bove. also disagrees, says sugar water is pseudo science.

I will have to look for that other Dr tomorrow but anyone who says there is no dependency without doing clinical trials is only doing this for the money. Praying on people with chronic illnesses is the same as selling snake oil. I have suffered since the 1980's & in 2000 begged a Dr for something, she prescribed the hydroxyzine which is a lifesaver, natural methods do not work for me. My arms are full of scars to the point people asking what is the white spots on arms. The article is all advertising, that's how he gets people to his product. I posted it because he says all these things with no clinical trials, so he is assuming or making up results which is sickening to desperate people. I also use Aspercream per primary, it has lidocaine in it. It's for pain which I always thought was the culprit. Also Triamcinolone cream which is free thru my insurance. Ice, and other products do not work, my itching is severe. I take ibuprofen for all my pain, and any other pain I learned to ignore it like the fibro diagnosed in1984. Because of all the diseases being diagnosed, each next one was worse than the previous.4 rare, at least 5 autoimmunes, however on their site says fibro not an autoimmune. Every Dr I saw said they believed me and only took one yr to get diagnose thru rheum.

Pseudo science, no clinical trials, or research, quoting another doctor who was shocked he is used in the advertising. But like I always say if it works for you fine, but it's never been proven that it works, it is sugar coated science, feel good junk. http://www.fmperplex.com/2014/01/27/324/
