Vague: Your symptoms are nonspecific and without a thorough history and physical, perhaps even some lab testing, it would be difficult to conclude what could be amiss. Time to follow up with a doctor! all the best! ...Read more

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 : 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

My hands after cold exposure were very itchy and red, what completely gone but since 3 weeks lower half of pointing finger my left hand is swollen.

My hands after cold exposure were very itchy and red, what completely gone but since 3 weeks lower half of pointing finger my left hand is swollen.

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. My advise to you is seek a warm climate and stay out of the cold; and that includes the freezer section in the store. ...Read more
