I have had Brachioradial Pruritus for many years. It normally flairs up several times a year but having moved down to Florida recently it has become more persistent. It is brutal and yes, only ice has helped. Fortunately the ice works every time for me. I've looked for additional ways to treat this and have found one that I am beyond happy to report works for me every time I have used it.

Either right as or right before I normally would feel the itching coming on I put Clove Essential oil on the area that has recently been itching. I say recently as the area seems to migrate over time. This knocks out the itch I'm having and if put on proactively at night, for the first time ever, the itch does not begin at all. It might be something you'll need to do several times a day. This has worked for me but no guarantees it will work for others. I never post but it has been so unbelievably helpful to me, and such an intractable problem that I wanted to put this out there. It's also not that expensive.

Here is a quick description of the benefits of Clove Oil I just pulled off of a simple Google search:

"The germicidal properties of the oil make it very effective for relieving dental pain, toothache, sore gums, and mouth ulcers. It contains eugenol, which has been used in dentistry for many years".

There are many other applications but this seems to be the most relevant. Remember it should be Clove Essential oil straight. This can be pretty strong and there might be some burning (not for me). Some people love the smell - others not so much. I don't mind it and certainly the benefits significantly outway any aversion you may have to the odor (which can be masked with other oils or perfumes).

If this works, please spread the word. Never been more relieved to find a cure to anything. Hope it works for you.
