See a neurologist: It sounds like you may be experiencing paresthesias, and they can be a very uncomfortable feeling! If in part of one arm, it may be due to nerve compression anywhere from the neck to the hand. A neurologist can do an examination, figure out where the compression most likely is, decide if testing is necessary to determine why the nerve is compressed, and recommend treatment. Hope that helps!

See an allergist: Itching is a primary symptom of allergy. Tingling probably is secondary. Antihistamine medications and sometimes steroids tablets are very effective. You can try over the counter citrazine till you see allergist.
