Starting yesterday afternoon, I began noticing that my hands were itchy on the inside, by the end of the day I noticed it was also my feet. I do not notice anything onthe outside, it is like they are itching on the inside. :(
It is really driving me crazy. I took some oatmeal baths which seems to help but almost immediately I slowly start to notice it again. I cannot figure out what is happening. Please help.

  • Is it when your body temperature changes? Like from cool to warm? I experience this too. Mostly when my body is getting too warm.

  • did you ever find out what caused this? I am having the same problem but when I take Zyrtec it goes away. As long as I take Zyrtec everyday I don't have the problem.

As long as I take Zyrtec everyday I don't have the problem.It's a leftover reaction to your snake bite. It's neurological. You might neet to try temporary nerve blocks for the palms of your hands and feet, cortizone shots in those areas, or the new metheod is, believe it or not, Botox in those areas. The botulism stops the glands from overprocessing which could cause excessive sweating and itching in your hands and feet. Works in pits too.
