: : My mother (in her late 60s) has severe night itching on her arms, mostly over wrist and elbow joints. No cremes have helped; ice packs have helped but tend to freeze her! There is no rash--no bumps are present. This tends to occur in the summer months only.

: : Has anyone heard of this?
: :may be able to help.seem like allergic reaction


This is weird. My Mom (60's) got a bumpy, itchy rash in the cracks of her elbows. It itched so badly that she hardly slept, I took her to the doctor, etc, (dermatitis) he gave her liquid Benadyl and cortisone, made her fall asleep but didn't help the rash. The next night I had the same rash! 4 weeks later she still has it - it isnt spreading but wont go away. Mine still itches and now my daughter (4 years old) has it. It is on our left arms. What is it?
