Re: radial neurothopy
i am assuming from how you labeled this thread that you are having issues along the thumb side of an arm or something?just where is this itching located?i have tried like every imaginable cream or lotion made for 'itch' to try and help with my areas of neuropathic itch,but to no avail.BUT,there is hope.lidocaine.i have the lidocaine patches and also use the lido ointment for the areas that the patches just wont fit on or over?this actually numbs the area of the itch so you don't feel it.this is the ONLY thing that appears to work for my neuro itch.god its hell.and nothing helps but lido,just numbing it away.these DO require an Rx from your doc tho.hopefully once you can try these they will help with your too.the ointment is just called 'lidocaine ointment 5%".just do not get the lido gel?it is NOT the same thing.hope this helps.please let me know how things are going.
