    Question Extremely itchy hands & feet :(

    [COLOR=Blue]undefined[/COLOR]

    Hi,
    I see they changed the look of health boards. I haven't been here in awhile but here is my problem.
    For awhile now I have been getting these white patches on my feet and they are extremely itchy. They don't burn though. Then I started getting the same thing on the palms of my hands. It's only very itchy where the white spots are. Last night the palms of my hands were itching so bad that I had a hard time getting to sleep. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem and what it could possibly be. I do plan on seeing a dermitologist sometime but I would just like to get a few opinions or ideas in the mean time. Thanks.

    That kind of sounds like a form of psoriasis to me... palmar pustular psoriasis I think it's called? I have eczema, so I can't be sure. But some of the people I talk to on another board have psoriasis, and what you describe sounds similar to what they've described. May be a good place to start when talking to your derm.

    Thank you, I will have to look into that.
