Help my itching hands recently, (in past wk.) I have developed severly itchy hands. The area that itches is between the thumb and first finger, in the web area, and in the meat of the thumb on the palm side. I have tried soaking them in epsom salt, hydro.
You may be dealing with a fungal infection. Try an over the counter anti-fungal cream like clotrimazole; you can apply the cream twice a day for a week. If you do not notice an improvement then it may just be a dermatitis and you may need a stronger steroid cream. At this point you would need to be evaluated by your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
Good luck. ...Read more

I always wake up with swollen fingers nd my arms and hand feel heavy nd with a bit of pain what can be causing this? Can this be a due to my anxiaty
NOT anxiety: Painful swollen fingers may be due to some form of 'auto-immune' arthritis. Simple blood tests (sed rate/crp) can quickly test for inflammation and confirmatory testing (ccp, ra, ana) may be neeed. I would get seen by primary care doctor. For now you can take nsaids (i suggest Aleve (naproxen) 2 in am, 2pm). Anxiety should not cause edema per se. Hope you are better soon! ...Read more

Sounds like Raynauds: It sounds like you may have a reaction to cold called Raynauds phenomenon. It describe it to people as an "allergy" to cold. Your body is put into that environment and does not react to it the way it should. It is like a broken thermostat.

Right index finger is itchy & ''swollen'' (wider than left index) for the past few months & hydocortisone creams barely work to halt the nonstop itch.
Finger swelling: You probably need to have someone look at the area that is bothering you. If you have been using the cortisone cream daily for such a long time, unfortunately, it can have a paradoxical effect: it can cause it's own skin irritation, rather than helping the problem. Stop using it. Use moisturizer (thick one) 4-5x/day. Use an antihistamine to stop the itching (like loratadine). If no better, see Dr ...Read more
