I have severe itching under my skin in upper arms

I have severe itching under my skin in upper arms accompanied with occasional needle prick sensation in different parts of my extremities. I have tried using low doses of Neurotin periodically but it never really goes totally away, my Doctor thinks it is referred nerve pain but it now is concerning me due to the needle poke sensations I have currently been experiencing which is new, the severe itching has been ongoing for a couple of years on and off, would like advice on this please.

My arm is itching very bad. There is no break out or rash. Has been doing this for months. It is almost unbearable. Ive used Benadryl cream and actually taken Benadryl tablets, tried cortisone. It feels that it itches under the skin. and its in the same area always from elbow to wrist on left arm. I feel silly going to dr for that but its so bad I cant sleep.

Hi I have deep itching in the creases of where my thighs meet the vaginal area. Also in the crease where I had my c-sec.18 years ago. Sometimes the itching is on the back of my upper thighs where the bottox meets the thigh. I had vaginal, rectal, cervical meshs placed. This itching seemed to start while I was on the beach at virginia beach in july this summer. I can never seem to reach the itch as it feels like it is inches deep under my skin.
