I have been take...

I have been take over the counter antihistamine and have even been to a doctor and have had prescription cream and I am still itching on my arms and wrists really bad. I have done some research and seem like I may have brachioradial pruritus. Is there is kind of relieve for this

Doctor's Assistant: What seems to make the symptoms worse or better? In general, how would you describe your health lately?

Usually at night time I itch the most and my health as been good, I do know I have been under some stress lately, my dr gave me nerve pills no change with the itching.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not that I can think of I just have a hard time sleeping due to the itching on the arms and wrists

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have and that is why an no relieve really and that is why
I thought maybe this was the brachioradial pruritus
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I have tried cortisone 10 and have had a prescription for a cream and still not relieve unless not strong enough
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
the cream that was prescribed that did not help was triamiconole acetonide topical 0.1 cream
and that was in November 2017
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
should I ask for a stronger cream from teladoc or continue to use more hydrocortisone over the counter
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I am assuming you are done talking and I will keep using creams with hydrocortisone and treat myself for eczema

You definitely need a stronger steroid cream

desonide or clobetasol
