Itchy feet: You can try oatmeal bath 1-2 cups in a bath. Squeeze undiluted lemon juice on itchy skin and allow to dry. You can also try thyme, basil leaves, juniper berries, aloe vera and mint! do not apply to broken skin though! if things get bad you can always try over the counter benadryl, (diphenhydramine) but beware that you will get drowsy!
