Heya umas. The itch that you speak of seems un-connected to your GERD unless you are manifesting an allergic phenomenon to your antacid! The nocturnal increase together with web spaces involvment of hands, suggest a 'parasitic' infestation that is common called scabies. However, these things are best assessed in person by your treating dermatologist on the ground. The treatment is simple & definitive so there is nothing to be worried about. One tab of Avil will not help an itch like yours & the monsoons (while being a harbinger of many things) are not to be vilified in your particular case & in any case are in short supply this year in India at least! You do not need any specific test but Do need to visit your friendly neighbourhood dermatologist. Cheers & Good Luck! Dr Praveen Rodrigues, Bangalore, India
