Itchy arms no rash symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy arms no rash symptoms


Avatar f tn I have been suffering from itchy arms for about 20 years and nothing helps except ice packs. There is no rash, this seems to come on in the late summer to early fall or when I am particularly stressed. What might help? Someone suggested I may have a sulfer shortage in my body.
Avatar n tn I live in Florida and suffer from the same "itchy arms," and have for several years. No rash, no bumps, no discoloration - just INTENSE itching on tops and sides from the elbow down. I have never noted whether or not it is seasonal; but it does come and go. I also have psorasis, but not on my arms. In the past I have taken ultra violet light treatments for this condition and have always wondered if that did some type of damage to the nerves in my arms.
Avatar f tn I have had itchy tingling arms for over 20 years. I have been to so many doctors, I've lost count. Some say it's allergys. Some say it's stress. Some creams work for a while. I've taken alot of allergy meds. Zyrtec seemed to help more than the others. I also take Doxipen. the Dr. just doubled my dose. I have a steriod cream that I use as well. It only helps during the day for a while. It itches so bad, I feel like I need to burn the area or even cut it out of my arm with a knife.
Avatar n tn Hello, Itchy skin on the arms and hands can be due to Eczema or contact dermatitis. Are you having a history of allergy?Pls get allergy tests like skin ***** tests or blood tests like RAST done to find out if you are allergic to something. You could consider such things as a staph or strep infection that frequently causes a rash or itchy skin as well. Or perhaps you have come in contact with a poison or have a bacterial or fungal infection. Other conditions cause itchy skin as well.
Avatar n tn Since November 2009 I have been taking Milk Thistle every day and I only occasionally itch. No more scabby arms!! No more wishing I could just sandpaper the skin off my arms and be done with it!! I came across the idea for Milk Thistle in my reading that associated nerve itching with liver function. However I don't care how or why it works, just that Praise the Lord I hardly ever think about itchy arms and it used to be such a constant stress.
Avatar f tn I am a guy, I just started having strong itch during night. I have tried 2-3 different kind of medicine from my doctor nothing works. I am going to use Soap loofah and try gluten free diet like other have mentioned in the forum. I had it last year and when I tried antihistamine it worked. this is it not working as the weather changed. I will share what I find.
Avatar f tn I have an itchy rash that started on the back of my hands and forearms and has moved to to the inside of the upper arms and ankles. The lower areas of the scalp also itch. Diphenhydramine and cold showers help slightly to relieve the intense itching. It appears as tiny white dots, then the skin turns bright pink when I scratch the itch. There are tiny bruises in the areas of the rash about the size of a dime.
Avatar f tn I have this rash which started on my face, neck and ears and has now spread to my arms, stomach and back. Its looks like small pimples with no whiteheads or anything on them. They are REALLY itchy, especially on my neck, which burns. I've only had them for a few days but they're getting worse. I haven't ate anything different or used any products that i don't normally. Any suggestions of what it could be? I've searched the net but haven't found much yet.
Avatar f tn my husband is 70 yrs old. Has had a rash for weeks, on his chest, back, arms and hands The itchjing is driving him crazy. Got Cortizone cream from Dr. but doesn't help.

Avatar n tn On Sunday, last week, I started noticing an itchy rash appearing. In just a couple days little tiny bumps have appeared and remained over my arms and legs and my back and stomach. When the rash began, I stopped the vitamins. I have noticed that during the day the itch is not as bad but at night the itch is worse and the bumps appear more read and full.
Avatar m tn The symptoms of this condition are symetrical itching on neck and arms with no rash, especially at night. Hope that works for you all as well!
Avatar f tn Hello, From the symptoms the possibility of hives is there and in your case it can be due to chronic hives. The cause of chronic urticaria is often more difficult to identify. Most cases are called chronic idiopathic urticaria, which means they're caused by the body's unexplainable development of antibodies to itself (auto-antibodies). Regarding this itchy rash on abdomen, pruritic urticarial plaques of pregnancy( PUPP) need to be ruled out.
Avatar f tn I have an itchy blotchy rash on my back, with several raised bumps (there are no blisters/heads to them). The whole red area is about the size of the palm of my hand, excluding my fingers. It started a couple months ago as a couple bumps where my bra strap is sewn into the back part of my bra (note:not a new bra). I really thought it was just the bra that was itching and tried several different bras (new & old).
Avatar m tn My husband, a diabetic, has had a rash for approx 6 months. It is itchy and drives him insane with the itching. He has had several rounds of prednisone and it doesn't help. Dermatologist said he had staph infection, put him on anti-biotics and anti-biotic ointment. Some of the bad sores on his face is clearing up, but now he is breaking out on his arms, back, and right above his bottocks. It's not on his legs, so far. The rash look circular or oval, sort or raised, very itchy.
190559 tn?1280615967 One of the people on the person to person Thyroid Forum told me that her 14 year old daughter had almost exact symptoms,and it turned out to an autoimmune rash that would erupt 48-72 hours before her daughter suffered from a mild virus. I was wondering if these are serious enough symptoms to call the endo or family doctor or if I should just watch her. Thanks.
Avatar m tn Let me say thank you for helping me out with this and also apologize if this is a bit lenghty. About 3 weeks ago (oct 8ish) i started with this itchy rash on my arms (outter and inner bicep area). It was just red itchy bumps. Now being a bit of a hypochondirac lol i got all nervous and didnt know what it could be. There was no pus or anything like that just patches of itchy bumbs.
Avatar f tn Hi my instant solution after 10 long itchy years was 10mg Trepiline very night - slightly subdues the nerves pinched due to compression of the cervical cutaenous in the neck area. The symptoms of this condition are symetrical itching on neck and arms with no rash, especially at night. Hope that works for you all as well!
Avatar m tn There is no rash or any sign of irritation and is mostly on my lower legs and arms but sometimes can be on the upper. There is no itching on any other part of my body. The itching feels almost like pins and needles. It seems to get irritated after I shower or swim or my body temperature increases with exercise but mostly water is the common cause of it starting. However there are times when it will just start with nothing to irritate it.
Avatar f tn My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs. ----------------------- Recently,I had an x-ray to check if I had any nerve impingement in my cervical spine - one of the possible causes but nothing showed so I continue to search for answers.
Avatar n tn I developed a rash on both of my arms from the elbow down about 2 days ago. Went to an acute care center, but she wasn't for sure either and just stuck me with the diagnosis "contact dermatitis." I'm worried that might not be what it is though.
Avatar n tn i recently developed these itchy red bumps on my arms and its been going on for a week. I want to know what it could possibly be and if its contageous and I seem to be getting them on my face as well but the ones on my face do not itch. what could this be? could it be something serious that I should be concerned about?
749148 tn?1302864559 I did remember (that's an accomplishment) that I recently had a flu shot.... I wonder if that was a trigger. I am not allergic... no rash!
