OMG, I'm not alone! For me this started a year or so ago. It started at that time it on both forearms. Like many of you it comes and goes. Sometimes it's both arms but most ALWAYS my left. The perscribed cortizone did nothing. Now it's mostly on the top/outside of the elbow and there is no rash until I cause one by my frantic scratching. I've used anything I could get my hands on including keys, combs etc. Now I never go to bed without my natural bristle bath brush. I also have a bunch of ice packs in my freezer which I get in the middle of many nights. Ice really is the only relief. This is SO WEIRD. Does anyone have an update????

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
