    My feet itch so bad that when I scratch them they turn red and sometimes they feel raw, and the itching still won't stop. After a period of time itching they actually start tickling. I have tryed spray, powder, oils, pedicures and nothing helps. It is soooo bad when I sleep, Im up allnight walking, rubbing my feet and shacking my legs. Now I am staring to take medicines to make me ignore it and fall asleep (alieve and sleeping pills). Do anyone else go through this and do it have a name so I can get help?

    That is as bizarre as me. I have unbearable itching in my feet and ankles - I have to have my feet icy cold to minimize the itching. The itching feels like my feet and ankles are being bitten by spiders. Even scratching won't relieve it - I once scratched my feet non stop for three hours - still no relief READ MORE

    I also found that wearing tight socks while I slept helped considerably. Odd, I know. But it helped me. Good luck!

    I developed that same thing a couple years ago. Then it went on to include my hands and inner ear at times. As the the months went by, I noticed my skin was sensitive to any friction or pressure. It would turn red and swell in the affected spots. Then I started to get what I call "hot spots". I would get a burning spot about the size of a 50 cent piece, for a matter of minutes and then it would be gone. It would pop up in various places on my body through out the day.

    Anyway, I finally went to my physician and an Allergist/Immunologist and ended up w/ a battery of bloodtests. The only thing that was found is that I have an internal allergy to something. Period. That's it. No idea what it is and it could be thousands upon thousands of variations of things. Including stress.

    So I have been taking a Zyrtec a day, Tagamet twice a day (it's a stomach med but it also has mild anti histamine effects), and then Effexor to calm any anxiety. As long as I don't forget to take the Tagamet and Zyrtec daily, the itching, hot spots, and welts on my skin have subsided and I can sleep at night. I try not to think about being on this regiment for the rest of my life. But there is that possibility.....
