  • I am having the exact same symptoms with the itching arm. Mine moves around above the elbow too. I went to the doctor and got steroids which didn't help at all. If anybody knows how to make it stop itching let me know.

  • For years I suffered this itching arm in a spot just below my left elbow.On the internet, a remedy was suggested. METOSYN cream(Fluocinonide) This has been effective in supressing the itch although not curing it. This cream is available from your Doctor.

  • For any one out there with this type of arm itch. My husband has suffered with this for 4 years. After researching, the name of the problem is Brachioradial pruritus. 500 mcg Vitamin B-12 (quick dissolve work best) and try not to overheat. It doesn't seem to be the sun as much as it is heat. Perspiring seems to cause to much B-12 loss. after 2 days of using as prescribed. His symptoms were gone. They still return occasionally but a single pill does away with the symptoms.
