itching elbow, no rash

For months I have had severe itching on the outside crease (not the knob) of my elbow. Can see no visible rash, just a slight "wrinkling" and it's not red until I scratch and scratch..Nothing to indicate a reason. It itches so bad sometimes it wakes me up. Have tried everything..benedryl, cortisone, dry skin lotions/oils, oatmeal baths, prescription burn cream/antibiotics, changing deoderants, bland diets, anxiety prescription, everything I can get my hands on or think of.. Still nothing.. Some days it's bearable, some days it's not. I can't figure out a trigger.. HELP, it's driving me nuts and probably driving the folks that watch me scratch nuts too!

Re: itching elbow, no rash

have you tried putting a glob of vaseline on each elbow.. then covering with something.. maybe a bandaid?? it is WAY better than dry skin cream/lotion.. i put it on my feet and then socks over instead of getting a pedicure... wayyy better than cream.. so maybe it can work on your elbows?
