Itching of hands and feet. What is the cause and treatment?

Ever since came back from in 07 hands and feet itch so bad I run shin off in my sleep which btw it keeps me awake alot. It comes and goes and sometimes more severe than normal. It has been so bad in past I just wanted to die to end it. Am I nuts? It can t be in my head can it? I have been to the veteans hospital over it. All they did was rule out cancer diabeties and scabies other than that they say they have no idea

It may be a simple fungal infection, which needs anti-fungal ointment like Lotrimin. You need to use it twice daily on the areas that itch for a minimum of 6 to 7 weeks.

Continuous application of moisturizer is essential to keep the hands and legs moist and itch-free.

Hope this helps.
