hi, i was at the gym about a month and a half ago and my upper arm started itching for no apparent reason. it got to the point i scratched it till it bleed. the whole surface scabbed over and then flaked. i went to my dermatologist because it was still very itchy after it scabbed over. the weird thing is there is no rash before hand or after. it was so itchy. i was crying. literally the intensity of it was driving me insane. anyways the derm told me it was soriasis, he thought. well the medicine he gave me isnt helping. my scabb is gone now and there is one bump in the middle of the white skin that i scratched off. and it itched intensely all the time still. i also have an overall itch all over my body. please help me. do u know what this is?
thank you
