You need to use the medicines for hair loss for atleast 4-5 months to see significant results.
Itching on the palm and feet can be due to multiple reasons like eczema, fungal infection or any specific skin disease.
Since you are having it for only 3-4 days take an antihistaminic like tablet fexofenadine 180 mg twice daily and apply topical steroid like clobetasol propionate cream on the affected areas twice daily for 7-10 days.
This should resolve your problem.
If it doesn't improve in a week's time consult a dermatologist and get a clinical examination done.
