Itchy Backs Of Hands DRIVING ME CRAZY
I'm to the point where I'm almost in tears because I'm so tired of the back of my hand itching. It started out on just the left hand and was in between my pinky and ring finger. There were no bumps, swelling, rash..nothing..just itchy. That has gone on and off throughout the day and night for a week now. Yesterday I noticed the top of my ring finger on that same hand started to itch and then it traveled to the side of my pinky. Now the top of my middle finger on my other hand is somewhat itchy. This is blowing my mind because I have no bumps, rash, redness...nothing at all. I've tried curel anit-itch lotion, goldbond medicated anti-itch ointment, a steriod cream I had left from a previous doctors visit about a year ago, and also just regular hydrocordizone cream. These will help somewhat but it has been a full week now with no solid relief. Anyone know what this might be or what else I could try? I called my dermatogolist and can't get in to see him for a month!!!!
About me: I'm a 29 yr old female, healthy weight (24 BMI), no health problems, don't take any medications. I do tend to wash my hands a lot throughout the day. I just don't see how handwashing could cause this kind of severe itching though maybe it could. I use Goldbond Aloe Healing lotion every day. The soap my hands are in consists of SoftSoap Soothing Aloe liquid, Dove Sensitive Skin Bar Soap, and Palmolive (the original green kind) for washing dishes.
Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
