Common Questions and Answers about Itchy hands and feet diabetes


Avatar_f_tn i have been having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> hands and feet for about two weeks. my doctor ruled out diabetes. but now i am still itching like crazy. PLEASE HELP ME.
Avatar_n_tn I have a tingle, burn and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> feeling in my hands and feet, mostly at night. I have a lot of trouble sleeping also. There are no signs of anything on my feet or hands. the only thing that seems to bring relief is cold water or cool air. I can't find answers anywhere....
Avatar_n_tn I jus got diagnosed and my hands and feet really the whole body itches, but hands and feet the worse! I have been using whole plain olive oil and that seems to help some. I really gob it on though. I got the big blisters on my hands that won't heal, and I keep putting bruises on myself from itching and don't know what to do about it. I am embaressed to show them to my bf.
Avatar_n_tn If I do any physical activity my hands and feet will turn very red and be very hot and I can feel the heat radiating off my hands and feet. If I am outside and the weather is hot and I am wearing flipflops my feet will get beat red and so will my hands. I dont feel any pain but it is uncomfortable because i can feel something happening in my feet and even my legs. If i take a hot shower my feet and legs become beat red and my legs get blue even and I dont know why.
Avatar_f_tn I also have tingling in toes, feet and arm and fingers, as well as a crawling <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> feeling on my scalp. I have had MRI and blood tests to rule out LUPUS and MS. So far everything is o.k. except it seems like I have moderate rheumatoid arthitis, which I guess is not so good, but less frightening than having MS. You say you feel fine, are you fatigued, and feel pain as well as the tingling.
Avatar_f_tn I have had really good levels for the last week , right at perfect and then all of a sudden my palms and bottoms of my feet have started to itch and my hands are tight and swollen. The hands go numb at night. I am courious, Maybe this has something to do with my body getting use to the new levels?
Avatar_n_tn Scabies infection is caused by a mite Sarcoptesscabiei, it burrows in the skin folds of hands and feet and causes intense itching mostly at night. You may need to consult a your doctor who will examine you and may ask for blood tests and in addition examine the scrapings from the skin to arrive at a diagnosis for appropriate therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar_n_tn I had a green discharge and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> nipple for 7 years and had a mammogramme that they said was a bit suss. got me back and did another one and then told me it must have been a shadow on the first mammogramme and the discharge was from me being a smoker.......(b.....sht) I never believed that but now I think I have cancer of the nipple/breast and m.s.
Avatar_n_tn Every time I go abroad on holiday after a couple of days I notice my feet and hands reacting. Each year i aim to keep them out of the sun, put them in the shade, wear high factor sun cream, not walk on the sand and without fail every year they react. They feel boiling on the inside but not necessarily boiling to touch, they are not red, they swell up significantly, tingle if i go in water and are painful/itchy around the nails and tops of the toes.
Avatar_f_tn starts with swelling of my vulva, which is very painful and seeps a clear discharge, then I breakout in a rash all over my body, which itches intensely! and my hands have completely peeled and my feet are peeling now, the last few days my tips of my fingers feel like the skin is thickening....
Avatar_n_tn For the past 5-6 weeks, I've been having numbness/tingling in my arms, hands and legs and feet. I've also had tingling in the face area.........mouth and tongue. My eyes sometimes feel itchy as sometimes my skin. I've had headaches and felt light-headed. Sometimes my face gets flushed and so do my arms, like I'm burning under my skin. My finger joints feel sore. I can't hold a book or magazine and turn the pages, my hands and fingers feel sore.
Avatar_n_tn I then started to experience intermitant sensations of what I can only describe as light numbness and pins and needles in both my hands and feet, but primarily on my left sided extremeties.I would also occassionaly get these sensations on a small area of my left thigh.These sensations regularly come and go, but last seconds rather than minutes/hours.

Avatar_f_tn The dr gave him a type of blood pressure medicine to try and make the swelling and the bumps on his hands and feet go away. But he got bad hives from the medicine. So he quit taking them, and are waiting to get new bloodpressure medicine for him. Now he has what looks like bumps under his skin on his palms of his hands, they swell for a while till they slowly go away, then come back again.

Avatar_f_tn The feet and hands are worrisome, as these can be symptoms of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>diabetes</span>. Especially if there is no rash. IF you have been tested for that, and came back negative, then I would start looking at things like hand,foot, and mouth disease, eczema, psoariasis, allergies, dry skin, nerve damage, and other much worse problems. Because you said it's under the skin, it sounds more like a nerve condition. There are so many things that it could be, and without testing it may be hard to figure out.
1154802_tn?1266489320 * Sores or bruises that heal very slowly * Dry, itchy skin * Blurry vision that changes from day to day * Unusual tiredness or drowsiness * Tingling and numbness in the feet and hands I am 19 with only my great grandma having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>diabetes</span> (not sure what type…) I had my fasting blood glucose levels tested over 6 months ago and got 4 which is normal but these symptoms have only started within the last 4 months. I have had a bruise on my leg which has been here for nearly two months now.
Avatar_n_tn recurring or hard-to-heal skin, gum, or bladder infections, blurred vision, tingling or numbness in hands or feet, and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> skin. Unlike type 1 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>diabetes</span>, symptoms for type 2 diabetes usually occur gradually over months or even years, and some people with type 2 diabetes have symptoms that are so mild they go unnoticed...."

967999_tn?1247546522 I have really itchy hands, feet, face, and neck. It really bothers me.
Avatar_n_tn I used to wash my feet & of course hands before going to bed. I would wake up with my hands & feet that were so itchy i would scratch til my hands were swollen and hands & feet burned so bad sometimes even would get a rash due to it. I finally found out that i was allergic to yellow 5 which is in so many thigs such as Mt dew, dial soap (which explains my itchy hands & feet, i used it), shampoos, foods etc.
Avatar_f_tn I apply different lotion, hydrocortosone, caladryl, bactroban (never together) but just rubbing on lotion it makes it more <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span>. I rub harder, wash and scratch with washrag, apply more lotion and then scratch with my nails. Eventually it turns red and gets little bumps. I take either claritin or benadryl and by morning it is mostly cleared up, some spots a little red and the rash might leave little red dots. I usually do this at night, during the day I can ignore more easily.
1154802_tn?1266489320 I went to my doctor but he said since my last test was fine I’m fine and referred me to a neurologist because of the numbness and pins and needles in my feet and hands. I’m kind of scared! Does this sound like <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>diabetes</span>?
Avatar_n_tn The 4th and 5th fingers are affected by the ulnar nerve, which can be interrupted by pressure at the elbow or the chest area (e.g. thoracid outlet syndrome). Parethesias in the hands and fingers can also be caused by broader diseases such as peripheral neuropathy (more common in the feet but hands can be affected) and various others. Correct diagnosis of the causes of finger paresthesias is important and treatment can often reverse the damage.
Avatar_n_tn My legs have been <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> every day since i was born. im 21 and i have always had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>itchy</span> 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_m_tn Upper extremity involvement includes the fingers and hands. Often both feet and hands are involved and both sides of the body (bilateral) are affected. It may affect one side of the body (unilateral), particularly in secondary cases. Less frequently, symptoms may also appear in the face, ears and other parts of the body. The classic description of erythromelalgia is red, painful, warm hands or feet, brought on by warming or hanging the limb downward, and relieved with cooling and elevation.
Avatar_n_tn but i cant get in to see him for another 3 weeks! my hands and feet really itch and my hands look like some kind of monster. and im really worried. if anyone knows what this is or even has any suggestions on how to get rid of please let me know as soon as possible. it is so embarassing. i dont even want people to see me like this. im afraid to touch anything b/c i dont know or want to spread it someone else.

Avatar_n_tn Itching was most intense in hands and feet but mine was all over and my body would heat up and make the itching worse. High anxiety levels from the itching. At least I knew mine would only last about 8 weeks (last 8 weeks of each pregnancy). I hope this helps someone out there.
