Itching finger: If you have scaly or abnormal skin there there is a possibility of fungal infections. Other possibilities are peripheral neuropathy, local, diseases like dishidrosis of hands, ides (an immunological response in the hands for fungis elsewere)my suggestion is to show them ( fingers and toes) to a dermatologist or at least a pcp.
