Itching On Palms And Soles?
why do palms and feet itch? but the itching feels inside the skin
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Itching (pruritus) is actually a painful sensation that appears in mild intensity. Itching that feels like it's coming from inside the skin is usually caused by a lack of blood flow. If it appears around the hands and feet, then the trigger may be due to:
Body positions that press the hands or feet for too long, for example supporting the chin, standing, sitting cross-legged, or squatting for too long Using clothes that are too tight Using shoes that are too tight, high heels Using jewelry that is too tight, and so on. This itching occurs due to other causes, for example:
Neurodermatitis (chronic skin inflammation mediated by stress) Nerve disorders, eg due to diabetes, post herpetic neuralgia, multiple sclerosis Xerosis (dry skin) Contact dermatitis, eg due to contact with detergents, soaps, cosmetics, or certain clothing materials Skin infections, such as due to fungi, bacteria, viruses, or mites Lack of certain vitamins or minerals, such as vitamins B1, B6, or B12 Abnormalities of liver function, thyroid gland, kidneys, etc. Try the following tips first to treat your itching:
Do not scratch excessively itchy skin Wear clothes that are made of soft, not tight bathing regularly and wash hands and feet regularly Avoid direct skin contact with allergenic or irritating substances Do not stress excessively Reduce eating foods that have the potential to cause allergies, such as eggs, seafood, nuts Keep your surroundings clean If your skin feels dry, use a moisturizer (mosturizer) Drink plenty of water However, if the complaint does not improve, but keeps recurring and interferes with your daily activities, you should immediately consult a dermatologist so that further treatment is needed. Doctors can perform supporting tests, such as allergy tests, laboratories, and so on.
I hope this helps.
