It is amazing that people everywhere seem to have this nightmare itch and not one Doctor has been able to help us. I have intense itching of one or both of my arms and sometimes even includes the shoulders for 14 years. I have been to every dermatologist in the area along with my primary physician.I have had multiplebiopsies, have been worked up for Lupus and all the other connective tissue diseases. My ANA titer is extremely high and one of my Aunts died of lupus. I met some of the criteria, but not enough for the diagnosis. I have tried every cream and pill known to mankind to relieve the itch without success. Mine seems to become severe late August thru Sept. I went through the allergy path without an answer. It is unbearable as you well know. Ice or towels soaked in cold water help-that's it!! You would think that in this day and age there would be at least one Dr. who could help us!!
