    Suggest treatment for itching on the feet and palms

Posted on Sat, 12 Aug 2017 in Skin Hair and Nails
Question: Hi,
I am facing itching on my feet and palm since 3 weeks. Doctor suggested me to use "Fexo fenadine - 180 mg) tablet twice a day. However, I did not get the same tablet but I used "Allegra" twice a day for 2 weeks. When I was using this medicine there was no itching. However, once I stopped the medicine, it started itching again. Currently, I have severe itching problem on my feet and at times on palms. Please suggest me.
I am applying CLOBETA GM CREAM on the areas where it is itching.

Area where it is itching it is just plane I don't see any rashes. Duration of the itching is 1min to 6mins. In a day, it itches number of times including mid nights and early mornings.
I changed soap from dove to Lux.

Brief Answer:
Continue allegra, clobetasol propionate cream

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your complaints and would recommend you continue with tablet allegra 180 mg twice daily for another 2 weeks and once the itching improves taper it to once daily and then stop.
Also apply plain clobetasol propionate cream ( tenovate ) on the itchy areas twice daily along with frequent and liberal application of a moisturising cream containing white soft paraffin 2-3 times in a day.
Besides this keep your hands and feet moisturised, avoid soaps and detergents, wear gloves while washing clothes and utensils.
