Just when I was starting to think that I was crazy, I read your posts. I have been experiencing these same symptoms(on my upper arms,) off and on for 2 years now. No rash or redness, just intense itching that worsens when I scratch. My doctor can not tell me what is causing this or what to do for it. I have tried creams, pills, sprays, etc. with no relief. I have also noticed that a cold cloth offers more relief than anything else.
If anyone finds a cause or relief, please pass along the info, as I will do the same.

The Achillotrain has a viscoelastic heel-wedge to raise the heel for relief of Achilles tendon. A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
