I have had this insane itching for over 20 years. I have tried everything. I have scars on my arm from scratching and bleeding. I finally know what it is. Brachialradial Pruitis. BRP.
The best treatment for it is Thalidamide, which is discontinued in the US but still used in other countries. The next best thing is Neurontin.
I plan on getting a prescription asap. Hopefully my doctor won't think I've lost it mentally, due to the fact that Neurontin is normally for seizures. So many of us have this condition, why isn't the medical community doing something to help us??
