Over New Year I developed itchy palms and fingers, the insides of my fingers got really bright red and hot and the itching was really bad at night. Antihistamine didn't work, not sure about hydrocortisone cream. My hands seemed very dry so I used lots of cream and it seemed to go away. But I noticed that whenever I ate anything sugary it came back though mild. Now last night I had three glasses of wine, the first alcohol I have had since New Year and this morning I woke up with really itchy red hands again. Could this be related to diabetes? Or is it eczema, or fungal? I also have a bit of athletes foot and after New Year I got sores at the corners of my mouth that wouldn't heal. The doctor said use anti-fungal cream and they did seem to heal after that. Any thoughts appreciated. Thanks.
