My itching is limited to my arms and is related to Raynauds. I have Raynauds as part of my diagnosis. My itching has to do with not enough blood circulating. When this happens I take an extra nifedipine which is used in controlling Raynauds and in about 30 minutes or so it is gone.

I also get itching sometimes if I have taken to hot of a shower. That is always temporary. With Raynauds a person is supposed to avoid hot water in addition to really cold water.

What other issues do you have with your lupus? Have you discussed it with your rheumatologist?

Take care,
