Do itchy palms and soles of the feet have any significance in pregnancy? I only bothers me over night and drives me nuts! I'm scratching and can't sleep!
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.
every couples of months the palms of my hands and the soles of my feet start itching. when i scratch them then they start burning and swelling. after a few days of this the itching goes away and is replaced with light purple spots. the spots are hard to the touch and hot. they are not raised bumps. does anyone know what they are?
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.
Thanks ladies I will call my ob Monday to try to get it figured out it's so uncomfortable
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.
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...
Too much soapy water, exposure to harsh chemicals and certain types of skin diseases are some of the causes of decreased amounts of protective skin oils which in turn causes dry skin. I would also suggest you to get eczema ruled out for your daughter’s symptoms. 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.
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.
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.
I too suffered a case of itchy palm and soles of my feet. This occured after a visit to my doctor for poison oak/ivy rash. My prescription was filled with a generic prednizone and I had take prescribed dosage for 3 days. I became worried, stopped meds and called doctor, who then gave me a Kenalog shot. No more itching and my large welts from rash began to dissapear. My dermatologist says, bunk. But I think prednizone was the cause and I will insist on Kenalog for next bout of rash.
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.
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....
What you hae sounds like dyshidrotic eczema, a common and nonserious ailment of the palms and sometimes the soles. Cause is unknown, but stress can make it worse, and dirt and bacteria play no role. I would use over-the-counter Sarna lotion as needed for itch until you see the dermatologist. Meantime, don't bother changing anything, and don't worry. Best. Dr.
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.
My 18 month old has been suffering for a week now, she has tiny red semi raised spots on the soles of her feet. At first we thought maybe she stepped on a nettle when she got out of her "pool" and was running in our yard barefoot. I Gave her a couple of days and just sprayed her feet with Bactine to relieve the pain and itching at night and in the morning.
My feet and hands are very itchy and my feet are swollen! I'm 32 weeks will someone please tell me what it is!!
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.
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...
They are not itchy. I think I may also be developing some on the soles of my feet. Last week I also noticed a small pimple like lump on the edge of my vagina which has now disappeared. Could I have syphilis? I have been in a monogomous relationship for the past 7 years. Is it likely than I have had it all this time? Are there any other STD's that it might be?
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.

I also had surgery on 8/27/07 For Carpal tunnel sys. and I Had reaction to stitches . A specialist in infection ordered a radioactive scan & a sample of a break out in my ear.

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.
Hello, I cannot confirm without examination but it can be athlete’s foot or pompholyx. It presents as itchy blisters on the palms and soles of feet. I suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get the diagnosis confirmed. Topical antihistaminics, calamine lotion and topical and oral steroids is the treatment of pompholyx. I suggest you to get the diagnosis confirmed from a dermatologist. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
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.
Itchy skin is normal, however if the palms of hands and soles of feet are itchy or have a rash it could be Obstetric Cholistasis. Which is treated usually with medication and Vit K. Its due to the pregnancy. Call your doctor and have him check it out. No reason for alarm.
I have what would be an advanced case of DE on the soles of my feet. My case seems to be associated with the weather and stress, two causes considered to be universal among sufferers. My breakouts ocurr always during late fall/winter. I live in central Florida where temperature/humidity fluctuate wildly. I also have hives associated with this condition. My doc gave me a steroid pack which took care of the hives but the blisters and peeling on my feet persists.
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.
