I have only been suffering with this for about 3 months now. I have gone as far as to use a knife to scratch my arm. I have no signs oy other symptoms besides the itching. I have tried benadryl oral and topical, prescription cortizone, ice, calymine lotion. Nothing works. My physician recently tried to say I have no answer so maybe its scabbies but I researched all night to find that scabbies has a visual affect besides itch tracks. I have scratched so much I leave blood trails down my arms. I have no sores, no bumps. I have an appointment with the dermatologist but there is no telling what she will say. I just want relief adn it's nice to know I'm not crazy.
