Itchy Back: Too bad i cannot see exactly where this itchy spot is on your back. If it's near the shoulder blade, on one side, there is a condition called brachioradial pruritus. It is thought that this condition may be a result of a long-ago injury to some of the vertebrae in your spine. Your general physician would be in better shape to see exactly where this "place" is.
