I have had periodic itchy skin on my arms and sometimes going up my shoulders, for the last 10 years or so. I am now 42 years old (female).
My ears and scalp also bother me, however the doctors say I do not have psoriasis or even dermatitis. This does not occur anywhere else on my body. It comes and goes, in every season, when I was pregnant, when I'm not....I have been to many doctors including 3 dermatologists who have given me every cream, prescription and non, and every pill imagineable for itchy skin. NOTHING WORKS!
I also been to an allergist. I am supposedly allergic to many weeds and dust and down, although none of those things give me any other allergy symtoms (such as runny nose or sneezing or itchy eyes).
There are no marks on my skin. No redness, no bumps....nothing!
What is causing this itchy skin on my arms? Why does it come and go? It is driving my crazy!
