I saw a new physician yesterday for a general checkup and told him about my arm itch issue and he immediately identified it as NEURODERMATITUS. I Googled that today and found the exact symptoms that I have been suffering from for the past 3 months and intermitantly for 4 years. He perscribed 2% Hydrocirtisone cream and Benadryl cream to stop the itching. It seems that it is a form of excema that gets worse with itching !! It become chronic. So, use ice instead of scratching!! Hope this helps you and me !
