Eczema ??: Do your hands and feet get bumps, sometimes blister and peel or crack? And do you get rough itchy spots on your body? The answer for that would be eczema but really can't tell without seeing it. The problem could be as simple as dry skin that could respond to amlactin 12% moisturizer that you should be able to get on almost any pharmacy .See you dr for right diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin.

Rash: Might be hives which look like a mosquito bite which are red, raised and intensely itchy. They can pop up on any part of the body. But i don't like the rash spreading to the scrotum. Maybe it should be seen just to be safe. ...Read more

Clean, don't scratch: Clean the bedding well. Gently clean your body well too and wipe w/ diluted vinegar or witch hazel, etc. Use a hypoallergic lotion too. Take Benadryl as directed. If you still suffer, see a Dr. You might need a lb test and/or a Rx anti-inflammatory. Try hard to not scratch! Avoid infection. ...Read more

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
