I keep getting unbelivably itchy hands and feet, particularly when they are cold-ish in temperature (though not necessarily).
The itch is intense and almost painful but not relieved by any amount of scratching/rubbing. It's not unlike the sensation you get AFTER you've been stung by nettles - a deep tingling itch.
I have no rash, marks, lumps or bumps before or after scratching and I know it's not a skin problem per se. Am starting to get a bit worried and wondering sbout going to see my GP, though don't want to sound a bit pathetic!!
Does anyone else get this or have any suggestion of what it might be...?
No, not pregnant. I've googled it and the liver problem associated with pregnancy keeps coming up (wasn't sure about liver problems outside pregnancy) as well as athlete's foot, which I know it is not.
Maybe I'll try and see my GP, just to see what he thinks after all...
