A 28-year-old female asked:

Went hiking, when got back i had developed an itch on the ball of my foot. itch same as the itch of a healing bee sting. can't be a bee sting though (i'm allergic) and there is no stabbing pain (thorn). it's 4 weeks now, still itching badly.

Interesting : I could only guess: a wart that has not come up yet: a cutaneous larva from walking through water...a callus that is loosening up. A tiny sliver in your skin. Try soaking in Burrows Solution ( sodium triacetate) 10 minutes: 3 times a day: for 7 days. If not better by then, see a skin doctor, (not skin walker.....skin doctor)
