Q: What is causing itching on bottom of feet?

For some years now I have been experiencing itching on my feet and hand with no rashes. Instead the leg will feel heavy, as if I stepped on a hot stone. Please what is the cause and the remedy?  Thanks.

I sympathize with you; itching is a surprisingly uncomfortable sensation. Have you discussed with your doctor. Itching on hands and feet without a rash can be a sign of something internal going on, such as problems with your thyroid, liver or kidney problems, or even diabetes. Be sure to tell your doctor what's going on. Good luck.
