First of all I hope you are doing well.
Since these stinging sensations started a few weeks after taking
Arimidex...then it could very well be a side effect of this drug.
I also experienced itching or tingling sensations when I was having hot flashes,but after a few months they disappeared.
As you well know each of us respond differently to certain drugs and if this stinging sensation persists,I would advise you to let your Oncologist know about it and ask him/her if a change of medication would be better tolerated.
Best wishes...
