I have suffered from severe itchy left arm for probably 6-7 years. I am a 50 year old female. It comes between September and October and lasts until December or January. Through the years I have seen chiropractors, neurologists, and dermatologists. No one has been helpful at all. No cream or ice can even begin to control my symptoms. Recently I was at our local medical clinic for an unrelated issue, with a generic family doctor, and he said it has to be a seasonal allergy because if it was neurological, or stress, or skin damage, why wouldn't I have it all of the time. Totally made sense. I have never considered myself one to suffer from seasonal allergies (sneezing, congestion), but he said that is not always the case. We moved to the northern part of Mississippi 10 years ago from Wisconsin. I hind sight, my symptoms started not too long after our move to the south. Anyways, he said Allegra (the allergy medicine) should help because it is a histamine blocker. He said Claritin and Zyrtec are crap, don't even try them. I was amazed! My symptoms are probably 80% better, almost instantly. I still feel a tiny bit of tingling, but not the 1,000 needles pricking me, uncontrollable itching that keeps me up all night, want to rip my arm off, crazy that I have experienced for years. I still believe there can be many causes for this problem, but hopefully this will help someone!
