I can't believe I am one of so many. I've been itching off and on since '96 following a very stressful period. Unlike many whom seem to have it at night mine is in full bloom during the day and evening. I have sat with ice packs on my arm and head, during meetings, to counter the intense itch. I have ice packs at work, home and would in my car if I could refrigerate it. Mine follows its own course and will pick the wrist, elbow,upper arm etc to drive me insane. It used to just come intermittently and focus in one area and go away but this year it has been fairly steady since June. I also have restless leg syndrome and pray to be out of my skin just for a break. I still can't believe that ice is the only effective treatment. I'm being referred to an acupuncturist to see if it is nerve related (which I now believe) and then I'm going to amputate. Kidding

Adjustable shoulder support is ideal for symptomatic relief of sprains, strains, bursitis and tendonitis. Features pockets over the AC joint for an ice pack.
