I am guessing here but possibly some nerves damaged during the incisions to position the pace maker. If that is so I'm not sure that Eurax cream will help but it is a possible.



Thanks Bob ,I will try that remedy this week ,have just had my 1001 remedy book out ,just dabbed my arms with vinegar , ah well needs must .Regards Poppystorey


No idea why you have itch but take Benadryl .....the normal one...not 24 hour really works as do ice packs...I have it on and off due to neck injury......
