I started last week with the Atarx drug, thanks to the recomendation of Jessica and it seems to work; however it knocks me out completely even though I am only taking 25mg at bedtime. BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS I DON'T HAVE UNBEARABLE (OR ANY) ITCHING. I forgot to take the tablet one night and the next day, the irritation came back with avengeance. My doctor has suggested that if Atarax doesn't work, then an orally taken anaesthetic to control the sub-cutaneous nerve endings might work. He has no idea why I get this problem, but thinks that it may be compression of some nerve endings in my neck, which would explain why it is only in my arms, and maybe manifests when I'm tired. God knows, but for the moment I am happily itch-free.
