Clamy Cold Skin

I am female,64, about 2 months ago my skin between my shoulders started feeling cold, clamy,and sometime hot feeling. no rash or pain but feels like wet plastic when I put on a T shirt. Sun on my back bothers me a lot, the area affected is about ten inches , My Dr. has me using Corteson cream but, it hasn't helped at all. This is just very irritating, What do you think?

Some patients complain of intense itch under one shoulder blade, but that doesn't match your description.  Many other people complain of itching of the back, for no particular reason.  Your symptoms don't ring a bell, so I'm afraid I can't explain them, though they don't remind me of anything serious.

Perhaps you should try using an over-the-counter anesthetic cream (like one containing pramoxine-ask the druggist to recommend one.)  Use that liberally and often--it ought to suppress the symptoms more effectively than cortisone.

Take care.
