I have had this problem for almost 20 years.
Mine started when I was pregnant with my daughter.
When it first started I went to several doctors they were no help. I have just lived with it.
My itching is anywhere from the top of my sholders down to my wrists, both arms, and no rash, If I scratch it get 100 times worse. I try not to, but sometimes I scratch in my sleep and then wake up in a frenzy.
Ice can help (a little)but I would love to know what the cause of this is.
