home remedies for itching on hands or feet

I had a pedicure. I came home and my feet and hands started to itch. The itch soon spread all over my body. There is no visible rash. Is it fungus?

NO, allergic reactio


A fungus can not spread like that and that quickly. You are likely experiencing an allergic reaction and may need to take some Benadryl . Go to ER or dial 911 if you are having any breathing issues like wheezing or SOB. See your PCP as soon as you can to make a proper diagnosis.

Tannic acid soaks


When your feet sweat, it soaks into your socks and shoes. Foot odor is the result of sweat that feast on germs that are already normally on your feet. Wash your feet, dry them well, wear wicking socks; wear sandals; disinfect your shoes; soak your feet in tea bag soaks 2-3x weekly (2 tea bags to a pint of cool water) The tannic acid helps to reduce pore size and has a anti-microbial effect.

See color changes?


It can't be completely clear but if they feel cold this suggests a vascular issue. This fits into the category of cold intolerance. With color change this would suggest Raynaud's. Would also check metabolic issues such as thyroid; vascular disease such as atherosclerosis; smoking status to name a few

What's - appearance


What do they look like? Do they change color? Sometimes this can be a clue to the cause. Do you takes any medications? Do you have any medical conditions? These can influence how your extremities feels. Staying centrally warm can help your hands an feet stay warm, wearing a nightcap, socks help.This may be a circulation problem. Sometimes a neurological condition can cause these symptoms

Interesting symptom


A visit to a primary care doctor can help figure things out. An evaluation and some blood tests can tell if there is a hormonal problem such as low thyroid hormone. Results can also tell if there is anemia such as low iron, low vitamin B12, or other anemias. Sometimes a person has autoimmune disorders that decrease blood flow to the hands and feet (called Raynaud's symptoms).

Incr temp & activity


Without seeing you and doing a physical exam and without having your vital signs it is very hard to make an assessment about your cold extremities at home. The most common reasons would be a cold environment (home) and lack of physical activity. The best way to test this out would be by doing 10 laps around the living room, wearing warmer clothes (gloves/socks), or simply turning up temp inside.

Typically


Typically this is not one thing but a series of separate issues. However you need a good general physical, bloodwork, checked for gout, diabetes, thyroid disease and general "stuff: first...then you r physician can start to focus in on these things For example a neuroma in your foot ( a nerve inflammation between the toes) a trigger finger or post traumatic arthritic joint in your finger, , a rotator cuff issue in your right shoulder all these things can give you these symptoms, Are you falling part, no... but welcome to 40 plus year of age Seriously though start with a regular chreck up and go from there
