Ok i have this wierd problem. About month ago my feet started to really itch. Went and saw a doctor who said he thinks its an allergic reaction, i was getting red bumps on the bottom of my foot, with the massive itching. He gave me some wierd cream stuff for it. A few weeks later the problem has not gone away, and now its appeared on my hands. Same itching and red bumps, unbearable... preventing me from sleeping. Its been over a month now, the problem hasnt stopped. I honestly cant take much more of it... Its also extremely sensitive to heat. I was doing dishes and everytime hot water touched my hand i could feel massive burning on the inside of my hand where it itches.

Anyone have any ideas, i really cant take much more of this. Im loosing alot of sleep, massively irritated.

  • Do you get blisters with this skin problem? If so it could be Dermatitis Herpetiformis (celiac disease skin problem) and you should seek medical attention.Hope you get helped soon, nothing worse than no sleep.

  • Hi, I just posted about this with regards to my daughter. But, you might also research Scabies. Red dots, horrible itch, worse in hot water. If it's an itch that's waking you up at night with the itch and making you as miserable as you sound, it sounds likely. It also feels worse in hot water. There are cures for it! Hope this helps.
