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?
I woke up this past Tuesday morning and the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet were red. My hands were swollen and warm but they weren't itchy. I tried treating it as an allergic reaction but there was no reason for it. After 3 days, it was still the same, so I went to the ER. They didn't take any blood tests and decided to treat it as an allergic reaction also. I had steroids, Claritin, and Benadryl at the hospital and they gave me a script for steroids.
My husband is having hives in the palms of his hands and sole of feet. we went to the ER once for swelling of throat, tounge, ceiling of mouth, eyes, ear. Basically his entire face and of course his hands and feet. He was prescribed prednizone for 4 days and 25mg of benadryl 3x's a day. He was fine till prednizone was done now he's having hives all over his body. Hot to the touch, itchy then burn. breakups happen usually when he comes home from work.
My 2 year old daughter has severely itchy palms of her hands and soles of her feet, to the point her hands are swollen and bright red and the bottoms of her feet are bright red, her hands and feet also get very hot to the touch. During the day it doesn’t bother her as much but at night she can hardly sleep. This has been going on for 3 weeks and her Pediatrician and Dermatologist are not sure what her diagnosis is.
Burning skin... (I've had itchy burning hands and soles of my feet) First, I'd spend the money on CeraVe' Soap, it's at the drug store, for your hands and the shower... Also, a 24 hour antihistamine, Allegra is the best then Zyrtec then Clariton, take any of the 3 that you can tolerate. Also, stay out of the heat, bright light bulbs, cover your self with a light shirt and pants.... a hat but you do not need to get heated like sweating....
It itches only on the tops and between my toes and fingers...ive read about the soles of your feet and the palms of your hands becoming splotchy red and itchy while pregnant but mine are strictly the tops. I dont have a rash of hives or anything...the only bumps and cuts on them are from me scratching so much. I initially thought it must be from my feet and hands swelling due to all my water retention...
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!!!
The skin wasnt peeling but had the look of extreme dryness (as the patches looked wrinkled). Now the condition has spread to cover underneath her entire feet and on the palms of both hands? She doesnt seem to be itchy or distubed by them. I have tried numerous dermatologist recommended moisturisers with no results. could this be a reaction to foods?
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...
My 79 yr old mother has been suffering for several months with severe itching, burning, redness and mild swelling of her palms and soles. A dermo has been treating her for erythromelalgia. Noted on one visit - mild warmth. He says the presentation is somewhat atypical. She is up during the night when it appears to be worse using ice to cool and stop itching.
It leaves blackish marks on the thick skin of the palms and soles. Sometimes it also spreads to other areas of the body, especially the back and the limbs. Recently my doctor gave me some steroids, I think it's called Prednisolone, the dosage of which was to be tapered off. It was very effective but as the dosage was reduced, the problem cropped up again.
Dyshidrotic eczema appears as intensely itchy blisters on the hands, fingers and soles of the feet. When it affects the hands it’s called cheiropompholyx. Eczema is a form of chronic dermatitis (rash).Allergic reaction is one of the important causes of eczema. Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin.
The vesicles are extremely itchy and they do not pop readily. They may involve the hands, fingers and the soles of the feet. Source: http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/553583 Is this similar to your daughter's case? You may ask your doctor about this as a differential.
It is called Palmoplanter psorriasis and effects the soles of the feet and palms of the hands. You get clear looking bumps under the skin that may burst sometimes, and you get scaly peeling skin. Causes are stress, smoking, and sometimes an allergy to nickel. There is no cure, except for easing the symptoms. I have been using Aquaphur ointment by neutragen(I believe) and rub in on my hands at night and use white cotton gloves to sleep.

Now a week ago after being in a salt water pool for a few hours I started itching on my palms and soles of my feet. The next day the bumps started on my fingers and also on my palms but they itched severely. After two days I couldn't stand the itching so I bought over the counter anti itch hydrocortazone cream. At first it seemed to relieve it but hours later it burned. Each day the bumps spread and grow and are hard and tight. My knuckles are also tight.
I have been to two dermatologists and one GP i have taken cortisone tablets and tried all the antibiotic and cortisone creams. I am an acrobat and find that i sweat a lot on my palms of my hands and the soles of my feet.(on the outer edge under my feet). I find that nothing helps and that this condition is getting worse and worse. It is continuos and swollen painful itchy and embarrassing. Do you think diet could help ? What do you mean by allergen foods high in metals??
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!
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.
Plus, it just suddenly starts itching and then will just suddenly go away. And it's always just my feet and hands, and it will almost always be at the same time. It also seems to just happen when it's warm. It usually happens when I've been inside for a long time and then go outside into the heat. So, I don't know if it could be something with my sweat glands?
After three trips to the dr., two steroid shots, a prednizone pack, various creams and lotions, and days of scratching, I'm at my wit's end and have no answers and I'm still scratching. I've been through all the questions....have I changed anything, eaten anything unusual, etc....and the answer is "NO." I'm losing sleep because of the scratching of a rash and of an itch on the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet.
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.
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.
"Hand foot and mouth disease (HFM) is a viral infection characterized by fever and a typical rash most frequently seen on the palms of the hands, soles of the feet, and inside the mouth" that isn't it, there aren't any bumps on the palms/soles of feet/mouth. Also, it isn't red colored either.
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.
i have itchy puss filled bubbles on the palms of my feet and the bottom of my feet. i have been dealing with them for months. i have tried anti fungal creams and they seem to just multiply the problem. i have a 7 month old baby and am terrified this is going to spread to him. what can i do?
Now these seemed to calm down and eventually dry out and scab up, but now I have noticed many hundreds of smaller clear blisters all over my feet and toes as well as my palms and tips of my fingers. They are very small and almost hard to see for others but in the right light many hundreds can be seen. When broken they are quite deep and painful in water. My question is what are these????? I have never had these before, the bigger ones I have had and they go away okay on there own.
I have these small blisters on my hands and feet. I was just wondering what they were. When I pop them they start to itch. Then they go away but I get more of them. 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.
Call your doctor right away! I had the same thing happen and they wanted to do blood work. Itchy palms and soles of the feel is the most common symptom to liver issues which potentially can be harmful to the baby. Which is as stated by another called cholestasis. My doctor told me that they look for 2 abnormalities in the blood and I only had one so they are just going to monitor me for that. The itching did go away on it's own but I was a little freaked out.
