I have had an intense itch on my arms resulting

I have had an intense itch on my arms resulting in a bump then a sore for 6-8 weeks now. It is only on my arms and my left is way worse. My right is only on the front shoulder. I have been to the doctor and dermatologist they gave me steroids ( a shot and cream) neither have helped. They did a biopsy and claims it came back just a thickening of the skin because I pick at it but that doesn't explain the itch in the first place. Any ideas?

Hi , from reading forums on here i think i may have BRP. At night i am kept awake by unbearable itching on my forearms , especially above the wrists. Its as if my skin is crawling with parasites under the skin, with a burning and prickly sensation. I have to place an icepack on to enable me to get any sleep. i understand there is a cream made form chilli peppers that may give some relief?

I m African American and I have suffered with itching of my arms, back and some times around my chest area. I have clusters of bumps mostly on arms. They do not have pulse or ooze or anything. But there are times when I m stressed or nervous, my arms itch more. The bumps make arms look ashy. Once I start to itch, I start itching all over. The bumps are confined to the upper torso, mostly my arms.
