Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem that I have had for atleast the last 10 years! At a certain time of the year, usually around the first of August, til the end of December, my arms itch me so bad that it affects my sleep and my life in general. I have seen a Dr. which give me a rx for atarax and yes, that helps me, mainly sleep, but it does not get rid of this problem. I have lived with it for so long now, that I just expect it and stock up on anti itch creams and lotions and I also, take the atarax before I go to bed at night.There are also nights that I sleep with an ice pack on my arm(s) because it helps numb the itch some. Has anyone ever heard of this or have any suggestions that I can try to get rid of this pesky itch. It really affects my life and my doctor has no idea what we are dealing with. By the way, there is no rash that shows up except for red blood spots that show up under my skin after I have scratched excessively. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
