After reading info on this site, I decided to make an appt. with the dermatology clinic at our local medical school. I took all the copies of dermatology reports, etc for their review. One very bright resident(already an MD) suggested takiing an x-ray of my spine. This showed bone spurs and damage near the C5 & C6 area of my spinal column. They are referring me to an othopedic surgeon and also possible physical theraphy. Terms used were cervical spine disease and Brachioradial. All these years going to dermatologist or having topical treatment on the skin, when it may have always been a nerve problem. You guys who suffer like I have might want to check this avenue out as well.
