Itchy palms of hand and feet

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy palms of hand and feet

itchy

I've had this itching, for some years now. It's an INTENSE itch on the palms, feet, now, bottom of legs. I itch and it leaves scabs. It can burn, and it looks like hives under the surface of epidermis. I can't find any such symptoms, I take Cymbalta, have thyroid disease which is treated with Armour Thyroid (90 mg); I take Vytorin 10/40. Maybe we can find a commonality in medications we're taking. It is maddening and embarrasing. When I'm hot, sweaty after a hot bath it's worse.
Hi, Of late, I am experiencing itchy palms and itchy sole of the feet every morning i wake up. it aggrevates into pain at the joints of the fingers when i dip my hand into warm water while brushing. I feel like always scratching my palms and sole of the feet.There are no visilble rashes but just the itchy and paining feeling. Suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
Since I came back from my vacation to Cuba, about a month ago, I developed some how tiny circular itchy things both in the inside and outside of my palms and feet. I also had an itchy spot on my scrotum for just 5 or 6 days, but got rid of it by applying a kind of whitish cream the doctor gave me for free. Now, the most disturbing ones are these itchy little stuffs, some of them perfectly round with a kind of a dark dot at its center and rigid. They are itchy mostly at night.
My feet have swollen up so mcuh I have been limping. Both my hands and feet go very red and I get swollen patches on them, very hot and itchy. My doctor took bloods and everything came back normal, I.e white cell coint, thyroid and kidney function as well as vitamin levels. I dont know what to do. This problem is seriously affecting my life. I had similar issues last year to which they subsided after a few months. What do you think it may be?
it first started with what you had on your hands with the small red/white bumps on both of my pinkies and sides of hands. it worse and worse and now its throughout my entire body! Now at 5 months going on 6 i now have bumps and dry skin all over palms and hands. it went from my hands quickly to my thighs. then from my thighs to my calves and legs. to my feet instantly and i began to get the same bumps from my hands on my feet between toes and on my big toe.
i got itchy spots on the palms of my hands, I thought it was spider bite but then i noticed red spots on my ankles and up the back of my legs. it is getting really annoying so can someone please help me out!!!
For example, I always get an itchy spot in the middle of the palm of my hand and i'll itch it/dig my nail into it and it will turn into a blister/red and then it will eventually not be itchy and heal and go away. But then a month or couple weeks later it will become itchy in the exact same spot. This happens in the middle of the bottom of my feet and on the side as well. Why does this keep happening? It's so frustrating that those areas of my hands and feet always get itchy.
Hi, I am having the exact severe condition of wanting to scratch the skin off the palms of my hands & feet right now. This is the third time this has happened. The last time it took 2 hours of staying submerged in very warm water to control it until the Benedryl started to help. It ended up with being my entire body itching. I tried ice and the warm water worked better. I do have food allergies & to some grasses and trees, but havn't introduced anything new.
Hi there. I went to the doctors complaining of itchy, red hands and occassionally on the top of my feet behind the toes and inbetween my toes. He gave me a cream to use saying that it sounds like scabies. I used this cream for a week from my neck down and showered every moring to remove it. This has not helped at all. He also gave me a hydroquortizone cream for my hands. It has been 2 weeks now and I am still the same.
I was reading the entrys on the white itchy bumps on the palms of your hand and i have had the same thing for a month but my main concern is now my 16 month old has them also. Im woundering if its bed bugs bitting us but then why would it only be on the palm of our hands? I put cortizone cream on it and the itching stops but I want to know what it is.
I worked in the medical field for years and witnessed both of those first hand... I don't have them and I would freak if I ever found anything like that... just wondered if anyone ever had a similar feeling.
Then it started creeping on down the inside of my hand and onto my other fingers. It was extremly itchy and painful. Working as a CNA your washing your hand everytime you turn aroung which didn't help. Eventually it started showing up on my right hand. I tried all kinds of different creams nothing worked. I would wake up from a dead sleep scratching my hands. I went to my family doctor and he said it was a form of dermatitis. From all the scratching I had done to it I had a secondary infection.
I have the same itching as described in the some of the posts above and yours. It can start with an itchy back -- but the next day the palms of my hands and soles of my feet are so itchy I want to scratch them with a knife!! One thing I do know i have is hepatitis C - so get tested - u never know. Also, I have put on about 25 pounds over the last 10 months - someone else mentioned Type II diabetes -- could be either one of those of neither of those - just thought i'd give some info.
Yikes does that hurt! and the same on my feet right at the heels and ball of my foot and on my big toe at the edge. the cracks get so deep and sore I cannot walk sometimes. I tried some medicine to kill it but that only worked for a short time and then it all came back. I continue to use a petroleum jelly based fungus gel and that keeps it at bay...but they still crack and always seem to get worse at my mid cycle with my period. and then just get bad again that is worse...
i was reading about the STD syphilius, and that spots on the palms of the hands or the palms of the feet were a symptom of its second stage. Try reading about it and see if it applies to you. Hope that helped.
Pompholyx is also called dyshidrotic eczema and presents as itchy, small painful blisters on palms and fingers. I would suggest a dermatologist’s and physician’s evaluation for the same. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps.
Hello, These symptoms can be due to pompholyx or dyshidrotic eczema. Pompholyx primarily involves the hands and fingers and then may involve the feet. The first stage is acute and presents as itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and toes. Then the chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting. Then the skin heals up, or the blistering may start again. The exact cause is not known and excessive sweating can be one of the reasons.
Thank you Anna, Since my last corespondence I have been put on oral Prednisone therapy, each time the rash cleared up and then came back with a vengence, now it is on my other hand and on the sides of my fingers, and so itchy and even water hurts. I have been to 4 doctors and now I am going to see an allergist. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
I've got an itch under my skin. Usually on the soles and bridge of my feet, on the palms of my left hand, some of my fingers, between my breasts, on my left nipple only and one spot on my head but its always on the same places. It feels as though it gets inflamed or worse when I scratch but the itch doesn't go away. Skin appears normal no rash whatsoever. Been like this for 3 days now. What could it be?
Red, burning, sweaty hands and feet that range from extremes of very warm and sweaty to cold cold. But my hands are always red..more so when down at my sides and less so when elevated, but always red. They swell up at night and sometimes fall asleep on me too. I know that many Raynaud type disease show up in teens, but I am in my 30's. Wish I knew what this was and how to help myself.
I now have little bumps on my elbows, upper legs, and the palms of my hands. If any one can help me! I would be more then happy, cause I can't get in to talk to a doctor for a few weeks!
There are many OTC scabies lotions which you can apply and see. It could be viral in origin—as a part of hand foot and mouth disease. Hope this helps. I think you should discuss these possibilities with a skin specialist. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
So, I get these circular-flat grayish looking spots on my palms of my hands and fingers. Usually where there is one, there are one more or so in the same area. You can not see them unless you closely look for them. They are about a millimeter in diameter size. When I first had them, they itched badly. --Originally, I went to see a doctor because I felt tired, stressed and my right testicle was sore-seemed to be evading something inside my testicle sack as it was moving.
but now the condition has spread to her palms and between a couple of fingers and on one thigh. She has been treated for scabies and athletes foot. Neither has caused improvement. I know it is not possible to Diagnose online, I am hoping for avenues to research in order to hope to bring her some relief. Any other suggestions would be appreciated!
I started to get them on my right foot. I also get them on them palm of my right and left hand. IF you could please tell me what it is that would be great.
We were building a house and i got a splinter in the palm of my hand from a piece of treated lumber. I dug the splinter out and thought nothing more about it. After several months, an itchy bump developed. The bump became a callous and peeled away. The deeper the peel, the more it hurts. this has been repeating itself for the last 15 years. I would love to know what it is.
I now have these small/tiny re occurring blisters on the top of my hand. They feel and look sort of like fever blisters. They itch a little, but hardly. They start out with a clear head. I then scratch it off, it then swells a little, turns red, and sticks around for about a week. They only appear one or two at a time, on one hand or the other...or both. Recently, I have noticed a few on my forearms. I scratch of the head, and a small amount of clear fluid followed by a spec of blood.
He's mostly had them on the bottom/sides of his feet. He keeps saying he has a boo boo on his feet and acts like they hurt. No fever or blisters anywhere else. I noticed this morning I have one on the bottom of one of my toes. (I can feel it when I walk). It's like a flat blister but there is fluid in it. I also have a couple of red bumps on the top of my foot (just one foot) and a bump on the top that looks like a pimple (this is the only one that looks like that).
