Is there any way to get relief for this itchy cast?

At this very moment you'll put anything down there to get some relief from that itching cast.

There are many different options for relieving an itchy cast.

(1) You could try putting a wooden spoon down the cast and getting to that itch.  A ruler can often work for itching your cast as well. Helping you to reach the area that is inflicting its death grip on your skin.

One of the reasons you are having itching cast symptoms is due to bacteria on the skin. You have not been able to clean that part of your leg or arm for some time. The itch monster is now unleashing his buddies causing you to have an itchy cast.
