After a walk on the beach, i stopped to wipe sand off my feet, then i wiped my hands on my pants. Started to feel the itching immediately! what is it?

Itchy palms?: The suggestion here is that you either came across a powerful irritant contaminating the sand or that you have IgE (allergic antibody that causes immediate allergic reactions) to something in the sand (latex is a possibility since you have a known sensitivity to that). ...Read more
