What causes tingling sensation in the arm?

Ever since I had the shingle shot 4 years ago I experience itching on my arm. It feels like pins and needles at time but once I start scratching I just have to continue. I ve tried putting cream on my arm and sometimes I need a wet rag on it to calm it down. Could this be a reaction from the vaccination?? and is there anything else I can do to relieve the itchy pain??

Hi,

Yes, it may be due to vaccination. You may take neurotonic such as Methylcobalamin and Pregablin.

As these are prescription drugs so please contact your local doctor for prescription.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Varinder Joshi
