For several months now I have been experiencing terrible itchyness on the top of both arms that feels like it's coming from inside. There is nothing showing on the top of the arms...no sores ...no signs of any rash
The itchyness is from the wrist to the elbow.
I have tried using creams for itch
Have used peroxide
washed and scrubbed
held them in cold water
I noticed someone else has written in about this.
Any answer to a solution?

  • Since your husband now has it, you can eliminate a lot of conditions. I was thinking of something like beg bugs, but you have no rash and those would leave marks, so next, I am moving into a common poison. Is there something in your food source or water supply? Try to investigate. Are your pipes old--it could be lead poisoning--mold from something old in your house--pesticides a landlord sprays when you're not around, etc...some type of poison--asbestos shedding--bad pots and pans leaching into your food--something in your food you're getting a lot of--Chinese food--a favorite restaurant with lots of MSG--ask them...artificial sweetener --diet drinks...the list goes on--try eliminating the cause. In the meantime, there are some nice homeopathic preparations you can buy at a local health food store for "itch".
