Hard to know: Is there a rash? Does it usually worsen during the summer? Can you describe the allergies? 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

I have noticed that my hands and feet have become mildly itchy. Almost like an ant bite kind of itch/burning. I am 35 weeks pregnant. Is this normal?

Yes: This is normal in many women during their last trimester especially. With increased fluids in the body the toes and fingers will have more swelling at times and will naturally tend to get a bit itchy. If you are concerned make sure to check in with your doctor who monitors your blood pressure. Stay hydrated and keep some form of mild exercise if possible. Congratulations! ...Read more
