I've also begun to believe it's allergy related. Mine has been going on for years. But, it only occurs on my arms. Different areas of my arms at different times. I've finally realized it only happens to me in the Fall. Beginning in late August & running through late November. I live in in the southern state of Georgia in the United States. I feel it may be something that blooms here this time of year. That is also the time of year that is worst for my sinus allergies.

When I first saw my Dermotilogist about this she had no clue. There is no rash on my skin. There is nothing but the awful itch. I really think she thought it was all in my head. I followed her advice of no perfumed lotions & dye free/fragrance free laundry detergent. But, the itching still occurs every Fall. I use ice packs to numb it & that helps stop it temporarily.
