Driving Me Nuts!! Anyone Help?!

ITCHY FOREARMS!

I cant find relief! Anyone have this? I googled it and threaf/forum/site after site mentions this as if its as common as the cold but with no found cure! I did not sleep last night and claritin does not work (which ALWAYS works for me) i have all the windows open, filter on, fan on, new sheets, covers, pillows.. NOTHING has changed..same skin products/foods.. Yesturday my forearm vein was noticable and itching like hell.,.. this morning its just sooo friggin' itchy! ANYONE have this or can help?? Its a SAT and no docs are avaliable and it sounds like noone can find a cure

This explains it perfectly:

Try Aveeno lotion. there is one that is specifically for itchyness and rashes. I had poison ivy this summer on my shins and forearms and it worked wonders!

This was going to be my recommendation, as well as hydrocortisone cream. You may need an oral steroid, and take Pepcid a couple times a day. Pepcid is an H2 blocker like Benadryl but won't make you sleepy.

Thats why i suggested you use the cream instead of taking the oral. Benedryl pills knock m e off my ass as well.

I totally get you..The Benedrayl was only taken as a last resort late at night and it did not work (as expected) but it did knock me out and kept me asleep so i would not wake up itching..which was kinda why i didnt mind trying it!

I use a coal tar solution with phenol and sulfur in an alcohol gel base.
It's cortisone free and stops the itch fast. It smells nasty though. It's called EgoPsoryl TA.
Antihistamines work, but they take too long. Sometimes it's hard to control the itch, so the coal tar gel is a real godsend.
Other than that just keep your skin moisturized with bath oils- anything with colloidal oatmeal is good, and moisturize frequently.
