Common Questions and Answers about Itchy arms remedies


Avatar n tn Thanks for all of your advice on itchy arms - I have suffered this problem for 30 years -it is getting much worse now as I get older - calamine lotion used to help years ago when it was mild -then i started taking antitistimines and they helped for a few years, but now at 55 even they no longer work. It is much worse in the summer months.
Avatar f tn I have suffered from unbelievable burning/itchy arms for over 25 years. Ice was the only thing that gave me relief. I scratched until I bleed and it came and went with the most severe problems in winter and at night. Same pattern for so many of you who posted here. I have been to 22 different doctors - dermatologists, internists, neurologists, Therapists, Herbal remedies, Acupuncture - no answers at all. Then I find this web site and people are talking about Chiropractic relief.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering from itchy arms for about 10 years now. I am actually up right now in the middle of the night with ice on both arms. It is awful and defintely wakes me up. If this is related to the sun, how do you avoid the sun on your arms. I play tennis at least once a week and am a big sweater, so covering my arms would not work. Does anyone know if using sunscreen will help or does your arm have to be covered up?
Avatar f tn all itchy arm sufferers....please look into brachioradial pruritus. 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.
Avatar n tn My mom has been getting the same itchy bumps on her arms for almost a year now. Nothing seemed to work until I suggested she start taking an Antihistamine. This seems to help alot. She has no history of allergies, bug bites or what have you, but she does get cold sores and suffered a severe outbreak on her entire face due to contracting bacterial menangitis where her immune system was so impaired, the herpes ran rampant.
537799 tn?1222120571 The rash is GETTING WORSE by day, it starts spreading on my neck, arms and legs..... Very itchy, some areas just flare up like sunburne, others look like leopard skin with purple very itchy square-ish rash spots. I am taking Clarytin, Hydrocortisone cream, but nothing helps much. The talk seems to be ok on the inflamed areas, but not enough. anyone knows does the rash disappear after you finish treatment? How fast?
568280 tn?1218126402 I to have suffered from itchy arms for about 10 yrs. I rinse my arms in cold water for awhile and it has a temporary result. Now it seems to be only on my right arms, sometimes I swear it's just nerves, but caffeine and stress seem to set it off. I've tried creams from the dermatologist, and no luck. Seems to make it worse. I'm interested in lack of estrogen problems. Two times my dermatologist gave me a shot of cortezone, and boy did that help for about three months, then back again.
Avatar n tn The skin constantly stays red and irritated even when i haven't touched it for hours, and the bumps never change in size or shape. It's almost like having red arms with extreme, itchy, goosebumps, except concentrated on the inside of my arm. That's how many bumps there are. And the rash stays warmer than the surrounding skin all the time. Can someone please help me? There's got to be something that can be done, I'm about to itch the skin right off my arm.
Avatar f tn i also suffer from itchy arms i cop many weird stares from passers by when im standing in street on a hot day tearing my arms to pieces from itchyness i have been to many doctors and dermatologists all have no idea what it is caused from but all prescrfibe creams that just dont help i have two young kids and in my despiration 1 day to stop my itching found that paw paw cream relived it temporarly ....
Avatar n tn Now have perhaps 30 each side of my back, with some down my arms and a few appearing on my chest. They vary in size from a couple of mm to 1cm accross, though there is one much larger on either side of my back, maybe 2cm. The spots are a dark red colour and are slightly raised. Some larger ones have a 'crusty', dry appearance. The spots do not particularly itch, and I have noticed no other unusual symptoms. Any ideas? Cheers.
Avatar f tn My daughter who's a holistic health practitioner and aromatherapist uses a few drops of Organic Peppermint Oil over the itchy areas. You may also try Aloe vera gel, as this works well too. ACV (apple cider vinegar) may help also, but do a test on a small area first, just in case you react. The above suggestions are for relief only, not cure. Wish you well.
Avatar f tn My legs get really itchy after shaving and at night while sleeping I start scratching them sometimes even without realizing it. And now I have scratches and marks everywhere on my legs, they don't seem to disappear. This is really embarrassing. Any ideas of what should I do? I've tried some balms and home made remedies but they don't seem to work!!
Avatar n tn And I have chicken skin at the top of my arms. My mum says its rubbish when they say its a syndrome or disease. I get itchy legs for standing 3+ minutes. Any help is good. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I have this itchy chicken skin-like on my arms for 2 months. I realized I had this itchy feeling after I went to a beach. I got sun burn and so I thought It was part of my sunburn. I put Nivea Cream to subside the itchiness but until now (2 mos already) my skin still not cure. My skin in my arms is like chicken skin, rough at some portions and itchy at some time, especially when the temperature is high. I don't know what it is and where I got it and what to do to cure this.
Avatar n tn I have dry red itchy spots on my inner arms. I rarely get them on other parts of my body. They come and go. They can get really itchy, but I try not to scratch them, because if I do, I can feel my whole arm skin throb with pain. It can keep me up at night for sure. I've tried using lotion, but I think the fragranted lotion I have makes it worse/doesn't help.
Avatar f tn I'm also going through one of my itchy rash periods right now -- under my upper arms, on the insides of my thighs and lower legs. Noticed several other people posting about this. I take Levoxyl and am due to have levels tested. Has anyone found anything that really works to ease this itching? I've tried the Aveeno soaks and use Sarno cream. One doctor says it's yeast, another says it's atopic dermatitis and prescribes a steriod cream. Have had this last episode for about 2 weeks.
Avatar f tn Hi, I got this really annoying itchy rash 2 weeks after giving birth vaginally to my daughter. medicine and sarna lotion don't seem to work. It itches even more when I scratch and at night. I heard other moms had postpartum rash too. What can I do to alleviate the itch and what is the cause? I breastfeed and it's unbearable at night with the itch.
Avatar m tn As I sit here and type I have the pin and itchy back and arms thing going on. I try to ignore it but damn... hard to do. Shaving becomes very delicate. I too am amazed that so many other people seem to have the VERY same symptoms. I am 62 , always been very active and healthy but was really starting to worry that something was wrong. Certainly do good but I guess the "misery loves company" could apply here in a strange way.
Avatar f tn I have a huge purple bruise on the top of my right thigh and one is starting to develop on the inside of my left thigh. Now I have the itchy red bumps on my wrist and hand, my arms, my foot, my stomach, and a few on my buttocks. They are scattered and small so it's not very noticeable but it is so annoying and I'm starting to worry. I have never had any allergies or anything like this before.
Avatar m tn We did not use Rid or Nix (permethrin), only a couple different otc natural remedies. We did not seem to have any allergic reactions to those remedies, whose ingredients seemed fairly mild, when we used them...With all of the other symptoms I also got these weird dark moles and my older daughter has white patches on her legs now, but again, we don't know if they are related to the rest of the symptoms either, but noticed all happening this summer!
Avatar f tn OK, I'm 36, and I've had the same itchy leg problem since I was in elementary school. It only comes up when I walk or jog in COOL weather, not in the heat of Summer. It happened again this morning and I hate it! It can definitely drive someone completely insane! I'm not sold on the 'rise in body temperature' theory b/c I'm able to exercise when it's hot - and we also have a hot tub that has never given me a problem... I'm so tired of not knowing why!
Avatar n tn When I cheat on my diet my feet, hands, knees, etc all get itchy, but my feet and hands swell. I am experiencing swollen itchy feet as I write to you do to lack of self control at a party. I regret it tremendously.
Avatar n tn I have blisters on several of my toes (on both feet) and it's not from athlete's foot or poor shoes. The blisters are extremely itchy/sore and are the size of a pea. I have one on each of the first 3 toes starting with my big toe. They are mostly on top of my toe between the last knuckle and my toenail, but one is on the side/tip of one toe. They are not true blisters in that there is no fluid sack. It is simply a very swollen and red hive. It seems like really firm and inflamed tissue.
288415 tn?1231634102 I sense relief then the symptoms return. Most days I can hear but am constantly aware that my ears are itchy. The challenge is to not itch. If I itch, I usually get flaky stuff that I literally can lift off my inner ear.If I itch too much it becomes wet and begins draining a wet clear fluid. Then at night, whatever side I lay on clogs shut. In the morning there is thick crusty crud that again I try not to pick at. Im obviously in continual circle of symptoms here.
Avatar n tn For the past 5-6 weeks, I've been having numbness/tingling in my arms, hands and legs and feet. I've also had tingling in the face area.........mouth and tongue. My eyes sometimes feel itchy as sometimes my skin. I've had headaches and felt light-headed. Sometimes my face gets flushed and so do my arms, like I'm burning under my skin. My finger joints feel sore. I can't hold a book or magazine and turn the pages, my hands and fingers feel sore.
Avatar n tn Since the outbreak I have had itchy palms and occasionally itchy ankles and feet, but my only outbreak of DH is on my elbows. Celiac Sprue or an allergy to wheat can be very silent and difficult to diagnose without the proper blood tests or biopsy of the small intestine. I'm hoping that following a gluten free diet will resolve my DH and itchy hands and feet, not to mention my chronic anemia.
1690397 tn?1341113991 It was all red and bubbly skin. My arms and hands broke out with 100s of little itchy bumps (like an allergic rash). In days, it spread to various parts of my body including my scalp, my stomach, my thighs (front and especially back) and my forefeet. I can only sleep several hours and am awakened especially by a burning, itchy (suffocating) rash around my neck. The little bumps stay but kind of fade out after a couple of weeks. The itching attacks come randomly throughout the day.
Avatar m tn but I'm still itchy and there's a rash on my arms that comes and goes (it's here now, tho)... Also, I have beautiful aloe plants, and having been using that, too... it's a bit messy, but works... :) I just started week six (with INC), and am UND at 4 weeks... yea!
Avatar f tn and within the last 2 hours, itchy red welts on the tops of both my arms. ...and the other areas just keep itchy. on a couple occasions, i used a cortisone & it helped a little but my endocrinologist told me i had to stop. i took some periactin [an antihistamine] but it didnt really help. tonight i am trying some benedryl. this is getting very scary!
