If you had to put up with a very sore arm or an very itchy arm (say, same level of discomfort) which would you choose?

I think I would put up with the sore arm.(which I have done with tendonitis)

Sore arm. When your arm is sore it just hurts. When it itches you have to scratch it.

Sore. When sore the damage is already done. When itchy, scratching just leads to more damage.

Itch is worse because you keep scratching the same area and sometimes it makes it worse, like the skin turns red or starts to peel off.

I have itchy eyes right now, and it's so annoying. I'll take a sore arm any day.

If it was just sore, I would go with that. If it was more of a stinging kind of pain, though, I would go with the itch because I find it easier to ignore that.

I've got eczema, sometimes you think being sore would be better because that stops and gets better. The rash on the other hand could last for weeks, months or years, being itchy 24/7. Medication barely relieves the itchiness if at all. For most pain you have a variety of painkillers. If you scratch you can end up doing it until you're bleeding then you have pain but the itch is still there!

I would definitely choose sore.

I would hate to keep constantly scratching so sore

Even a mosquito bite is a pain in the ass, so I choose sore

Sore. I've dealt with some pretty bad soreness before. Itchiness just drives me crazy.

The sore arm, because you could at least take pain killers for that and/or rest it so that it wouldn't hurt as much. I have a chemical allergy where I break out in little hives if my skin comes into contact with it, and it itches like crazy, then when they dry up my skin cracks and peels if I don't constantly use lotion or something for it. It's sooooo annoying! So yeah, I'd rather go with the sore arm instead.

Sore. I keep getting sore this and that and aching here and there anyway. Currently have both sore and itch (because of allergies <_<) and the latter just annoys me so much.
