My husband is experiencing extreme itchiness in his forearm. He describes it as bugs crawling under his skin. His skin also heats up like it's on fire. Twice a week he says it feels like someone is sticking a large needle through his arm.
My husband went to the doctor. The doctor gave him a topical cream and told my husband it was stress. We have tried everything. The only solution we have found it to ice it.
We have tried everything from home remedies to Chinese medicine. Our next step is to go to the doctor and get blood work done. We don't have health insurance yet so have been putting it off...the itchiness is too unbearable and I feel so bad for my hubby. Getting insurance this weekend.
Does anyone know what this could be?
Thank you for your help and any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated! Thank you.View Thread
