Why does my palm of feet itches ?

Why does my palm of feet itches ?

Dry Skin, Fungus: The most common causes of itchy skin on the soles of your feet are dry skin and athlete's foot which is caused by fungus or yeast. Even if you do not see or smell anything odd, i'd suggest trying a simple over the counter anti fungal cream applied every day and see if the problem resolves. If not, see a doctor. Terbinafine and Clotrimazole are commonly available otc antifungals. ...Read more
