Answer

Patients with brachioradial pruritus need time, sympathy, and understanding. They appreciate being told that they have a defined entity and that treatment options are available. Ice packs are helpful for immediate symptomatic relief, and other treatments can be tried in an outpatient setting. Frequent follow-up is often helpful emotionally for patients. Most cases remit in weeks to months.
