Continuous itching on the forearm, triggered on touching the site, feeling of itching deeper in the tissue. How can I stop it?

My forearm on my left arm will not stop itching. It started last week and I cannot get it to stop. It starts when it gets hot or if I touch it. I then cannot stop itching. I feel like it is not on the surface but rather deeper in the tissue . It s driving me crazy. It also seems to get worse at night and keeps me up at night. Please help.
