When walking on rocks when it is cold outside my feet begin itching and hard to get them to stop. This seems to also trigger the palms of my hands and my arms. This goes on for days. What might be causing it? No swelling just insatiable itching.
AnItchInTimeSaves9: Stick with me here: There's something called 'cold-induced urticaria,' which means something cold can cause hives,like sometimes exposure to cold can kick-off and asthma attack.Well,you don't have hives but you do have the itch, so try some Benadryl(no Rx needed)and see if that helps.

However this type of swelling generally subsides after 24 hours or so. For this reason I feel an insect bite is more likely in your case. If the hand swelling persists, becomes painful or develops redness, have a physician examine you for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more
