In Reply to: Feet Itch Intensely With No Visible Signs posted by Donna Baldwin on January 04, 2000 at 18:08:22:
: My feet, mostly in the arches and sides begin to itch so intensely that it raises my blood pressure and I scratch hard until I use an athelets foot spray. It seems to come on all at once and mainly when I go to bed. There are no visible signs of peeling or redness. At first I thought it was dryness and tried lotion. But the lotion would bring on the itching. The itching when it comes on seems to be in one spot or small area. Would love to hear from anyone else who has experienced this.
I had the same experience like you and went to a doctor for a check up. The doctor told me it is caused by a kind of fungus and give me medicines.
I treated my feet with the medicine but it did not help so I came back to the hospital and tried to get another doctor. After careful check up he found out that I have variscous vein (the spider one)and the symptom is itchy in the beginning especially after a long walk or standing.
The treatment is by injection to the vein and now I get rid of this problem. The only thing left is I have to wear support hosiery socks.
If your sickness is about this, maybe this info can help.
