Question: Itchy hands and feet without rash

 imaybemoody - Sat Sep 13, 2008 12:20 pm

My hands and feet itch. Sometimes they quiet down but just start back up again. I have not changed anything in my diet or other areas. There is no rash or bumps. I have tried oral Benadryl and topical Benadryl cream, hyrocortosone cream and regular lotion to no avail. This has been going on for several days now.

User avatar Hello,
Have you tried a different soap or other product that might be offending you? If not, there are some conditions that sometimes present with this symptom but it would require seeing a doctor for a diagnosis. It could be an autoimmune disorder, for example, such as Lupus or Raynaud's Syndrome. I would see a doctor if it continues past two weeks.

Best wishes.
