Common Questions and Answers about Itchy feet when standing


Avatar_f_tn no only when in contact with something
Avatar_n_tn I have a problem when I work a long 12hrs shift and have been onmy feet for most of the time, my lower body starting with ankles and then my legs itch so crazy that I have almost made them bleed by scratching, no rash appears but I do makes streaks while raking my legs, only hot baths and body oil or lotions after help a little, then nothing can touch them for a couple of hours or it starts back up. What can I do? Is this a circulation thing or just skin stuff?
Avatar_n_tn When standing, my feet get hot, red, swelled and also itchy. This morning, and other times in the past, I've noticed that when I stand for little amounts of time, my feet become very hot and uncomfortable. It could be as little as 5 minutes and it begins to happen. They get itchy and really red. What could this be?
Avatar_f_tn One symptom I am confused about happens to my feet and I am wondering if it can be related to autoimmune disorders. My feet are very itchy most of the time and turn hot and red. Lately when this happens there is some swelling and they sweat a lot. The swelling is scary too. I also have leg weakness (don't know if it is related), crawing sensations in my legs. My feet really bother me, they get so hot I stick them out of the covers at night.
Avatar_f_tn It is very sensitive to touch and hurts/burns when i scratch it. It is NOT raised and is about the size of a dime.I have tried anti itch cream and antibiotic cream. It will not go away and continues to itch. Also I have a reaccouring rash that appears on my chest.The one on my heel and other one on my chest are UNRELATED. The one on my chest usually occurs after i lay in the tanning bed. Could it be from heat? It itches and spreads when i scratch it.Any suggestions will help.Thanks.
Avatar_n_tn I also randomly break out on my feet when i am standing too long, and my hands will get really red and start burning and itching. A few times i have had my lip swell up too. I have no insurance so haven't had a chance to see a doctor, but when i take benadryl it seems to help with the itching and calamine lotion too.
Avatar_n_tn My legs have been itchy every day since i was born. im 21 and i have always had itchy legs. when i was younger my family would all scream at me as once i started i couldnt seem to stop. the itching gets so bad that it annoys you and fustrates you and it becomes painfull. My dad used to smack my legs where it was itching and it used to help but it didnt last too long only for about 5-10 mins and i would be scratching again.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, yes, I have red hands and feet/legs only when standing, but it is starting to happen even when sitting or in any position where my hands and feet are not ABOVE my heart, I think. I also have very protruding veins, getting worse, they are sticking out all the way up to my chest, starting with the worst from the hands and feet. It is worse when it is hot and it feels like I am going to have a heart attack.
Avatar_n_tn About a year ago I started to experience a very strange feeling that occurs periodically when I move from a sitting to a standing position and start to walk. The sensation is as if my head and neck are throbbing with pressure and I have to stop walking or slow down and stop and stand still for a minute or so to make the sensation stop. Sounds are muffled in rhythm with the pulsations and I sometimes feel as if I will pass out, but never have. There is no pain.
Avatar_n_tn But even when the hair had full grown out it was still itchy and was always worse when id try relax or sleep. There was always blood on the sheets from me scratching in my sleep. It was so embarrassing and put me off going on dates and wanting a relationship. I was still struggling with it when I met my partner now and he has been by my side and extremely understanding the whole time. In fact if it wasn't for him I probably would have gave up and never fixed it.
Avatar_n_tn Since the outbreak I have had itchy palms and occasionally itchy ankles and feet, but my only outbreak of DH is on my elbows. Celiac Sprue or an allergy to wheat can be very silent and difficult to diagnose without the proper blood tests or biopsy of the small intestine. I'm hoping that following a gluten free diet will resolve my DH and itchy hands and feet, not to mention my chronic anemia.
Avatar_f_tn Change from Hot to cold- Some of you said you get itchy when your not working out but are in hot weather or when you are working out and in cold weather or when you are rested and your body temperature is less than your surrounding. You need to realize it's the CHANGE in temperature. So if you workout in a cold gym, you're making yourself hot. I bet if you step outside in the warmth there is a chance it will subside and vice-versa.
Avatar_f_tn all itchy arm sufferers....please look into brachioradial pruritus. My arms, and only my arms, have itched for 10 years. no rashes, no psiorias, excema etc. The creams, allergery list is extensive as to what I have tried but nothing worked. ---------------The only thing that helps are ice packs.
Avatar_m_tn feet numb, no pain sitting/lying, just standing. numbness parathesia in ankles up to calves,can't walk normally because of sore/tired feeling in feet when weight-bearing, have top neurologist at HUP and neurosurgeon, no diabetes, A1C is 5.
Avatar_m_tn i used vicks vapor rub rub on my feet and put on socks.I have tried everything and the vicks dont always work.If i get in bed with nothing on my feet im up in 5 min to put something on.I also use Vaseline and lotion.
Avatar_n_tn My right leg is numb above my knee and surrounding thigh, hurts when it is lightly touched, and with the cold weather plus I get a stabbing pain as if I am being stabbed with a knife. It hurts when I am standing, sitting or lying down. Lately my lower back and pelvic area are sore as well. I have an appt with the neurologist at the end of this month. I was talking to friend who is also a gastro doctor and he thinks something is pressing on a nerve.
Avatar_n_tn I sit at a desk all day and use the computer. The time I feel these symptoms the most is when I get home and put my feet up and when I get in bed. Were your symptoms this "come and go?" or were they constant?
Avatar_f_tn My wife has the same problem, and has had it ever since she first started shaving her legs when she was younger. It drives her crazy. It's all she can do to either wax and have a couple of weeks until the itching (which she has stopped because waxing *****), or just not shave at all. Most people in these forums talk about how the itching is all women, but never connect that to the fact that it's shaving! Most men don't shave their legs, so most don't have itch that comes from shaving!
Avatar_m_tn Some times when this happens..I wake up and my feet are swollen and sore(feeling like they are asleep)..I hobble around for a little while. I have to admit it used to be kinda funny..but the pain is a bit much sometimes when I do that. I worked at a factory for 10 years, wearing rubber boots standing on feet used to hurt somthing fierce back then. I tried boot inserts, but those only last so long anyway. I left there about a month ago...
Avatar_n_tn the last few days i have noticed that my feet get really really itchy (under them), red spots top and bottom of feet (not the calf), also under my feet are all of a sudden really dry. I am thinking that because i am able to wear my slippers all day and not have a problem....then put on socks for a couple of hours and take them off to itch sore feet, that i am having some kind of allergy to socks!!!! weird thing is that under my feet (where they itch and dry) it aches....
Avatar_n_tn I also linked the bumps to the summer heat. When I stay cool and put my itchy hands and feet in cool water the itching subdues and then the bumps eventually disappear, but it only takes a hectic hot summer day for them to pop back up. I decided to use natural methods/ life style changes ( staying cool, using unscented lotions and trying not to itch) to treat this problem rather than using excessive creams.
Avatar_m_tn the skin surrounding the affected swollen area also became incredibly itchy would be a deep red color sometimes purple especially around the ankle. several times i wanted to grab a fork and just go to town scratching the areas to try to relieve the itch it was so itchy but somehow m naged to hold back and tried using some OTC hydrocortizone cream which helped some but not very much. what did help the itching, oddly enough, was pressure.
Avatar_n_tn I suffered from all the debilitating itchy leg symptoms described here, primarily on Sunday mornings when I was extra stressed trying to get the family out the door in time to teach Sunday school. Since I always change the sheets on Saturday, my husband suggested that it might be the detergent/fabric softener. Switching to unscented, hypo-allergenic products did help to alleviate the problem, and today I am symptom free.
Avatar_n_tn Within a couple months the tiny bumps appeared again, this time the bumps grew and formed tiny blisters with clear liquid, still incredibly itchy. When the blisters popped they grew to form one large open very weepy blister on the inside of my elbow about the size of softball that didn't dry up or heal for about 3 weeks. At the time I was working on a cruise ship. This time the doctor misdiagnosed me HIV and quarantined me and threatened to throw me off the ship.
Avatar_n_tn It sounds to me like you have a yeast infection and its a good probability its from the antiobiotics. Antibiotics kill off the good and bad bacteria and when the good bacteria aren't there yeast can thrive. Go to the store and pick up monistat (at least the 5 or 7 day one) or give a call into your doc for diflucan.
Avatar_n_tn I would watch out with the alcohol in the tub. I used to get some relief with rubbing alcohol on my skin when I get itchy till my doctor said that makes the itching worse because rubbing alcohol can make your skin 10 times drier. Would the alcohol not make your privates dry and itchy?
Avatar_n_tn Allergy to plastic/latex in it, is very common. Often times this makes your feet turn red when you get out and stand on the 100% polyester mat. Or rubber mat in some cases. tingling be be part of the reaction. Anyone want to see if this is why they react, just buy a cloth curtain like motels have. They are waterproof. Things wil be much better. I say this because so many on this thread have no dry skin, and this happens only in the shower. And doctors are not taught this.
