Hi I'm maria and I suffer itchy and burning hands and feet to the point it swells up ...idk if its a sign of a change of my allergies.. But I want to know how I can handle it especially during the summer..

In general, seasonal or food allergies do not cause isolated cutaneous symptoms on the hands and feet. A metabolic, toxic or nutritional neuropathy can cause hands/feet burning without rash. Insect exposure at night (if only the hands/ feet, head are exposed) might present this way. Just thoughts. ...Read more

It is thought to be caused by a deficiency of Dopamine in the brain. Sometimes this can be corrected with correcting one's iron levels, if they are low. Be careful, iron levels must be measured and followed if taken. ...Read more
