I have a spot in my foot about the size of a nickel that has been itching for between 15 and 17 years! Same spot, same size, no discoloration, no rash, nothing visible. Worse when my feet are warm (maybe when circulation is increased?) or in warm weather. It is driving me bananas. I've mwntioned it to my PMD many times but I don't get any answers and i don't feel she thinks iys important. It may not be from a medical standpoint but I can't bear the itch! Help please!

  • I have this too. It's probably a fungal infection. Get some over-the-counter antifungal spray & use it for several days to see if it helps.
