itchy fingers/toes

Posted In: Itchy Rash Anonymous | January 29, 2014 | 01:21 AM

I suffered for about 4mths with itchy fingers sells g and turning very red. Eventually my toes started to do the same thing even waking me out of a deep sleep and the only thing that would soothe my hands would be running them under cold water. It would happen in th evening after work. Went to the dr and had extensive lab work and found out that I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder also known as overlapping disorder because you have symptoms of three different disorder: Lupus, scleroderma and polymisotosis(?). You can treat this with prendnasone. Hope this helps
