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.

My body itches a lot especially hands and my feet, but I have failed to know the cause. Pls a advise . Thx?

Eczema ??

Extremity-upper-hand
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.

Can dyshidrotic eczema be located on top of hands & shins? Hubby has seen Drs. no answers creams dont seem to work. Hand itches, cracks & scabs over

NO

Palm
Dyshidrotic eczema presents on palms & soles. You need to see a dermatologist. You do not specify WHICH cream was tried. That is very important as some are 1000x more potent than others. Probably he needs an ointment.

Dr. Jack Mutnick answered:

Skin itch (no redness) started 2 yrs ago, feet & hands, then scrotum. It comes & goes. Now it itches more, puffy eyes and redness on neck. What is it?

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.

I have red spots on my legs,hands,and back,it occurs itches when i scratch,it is pinching me up to scratch again n again,it had happened this morning ?

Could be hives

Hives can come up very quickly, especially when you scratch. But there are many other causes of "red spots" - without more information it's hard to narrow it down. Your best option is to let a dermatologist look at them and tell you for sure what is going on.
