My feet are normally really cold all the time but sometimes at night they turn bright red and are itchy and hot, normally if i eat or drink before bed?

Blood Shunting.: I guess I don't quite understand the sequence of events before going to bed. The first thing that I would try, however, is not eat or drink before bed, for several days, just to see if you have the same reactions. If everything returns to normal, then, problem solved. If not, then it is time to be evaluated by a specialist. ...Read more

Hard to say but: How long has it been going on? Are they really like the size of an eraser head.. & are gone by the morning(& gone the whole next day)? ..&no where else on your body? Bed bugs would be unlikely..Unless someone else sleeps in the same bed & they have it too? If bumps look more like welts(small mosquito bites) maybe are hives..But if going on more than few days take few pix & see your dr. ...Read more

When things get: quiet at night we are less distracted. Thus we can focus on physical and emotional symptoms that we don't focus on during the busy day. Please see your doc to rule out fungal infection on feet. Peace and good health. Avoid alcohol-containing lotions. ...Read more

I have small raised bumps on my feet that are very itchy (especially at night) but not red or inflamed-also some (less) around the knees. Suggestions?

Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more
