Well night two of the Benadryl spray didn’t work.

I have a specific foot cream for moisturizing. I do use it with socks immediately after application. Been using it for years.

I tried an anti fungal cream. That works one day then it doesn’t.

I’m going to do the Gold Bond tonight.

The other poster that said they itch all over at night during the winter, do you exercise? If you do, that’s completely normal. It has something to do with your muscles. Not a bad thing but can make you just as crazy as this does for me.

Likely this isn't the cause of your itchy feet, but will pass it along. One cause of itchy feet is related to the liver...do you have any liver issues?

Not that Iím aware of. Aside from an esophageal motility disorder, Iím pretty healthy.

Thank you though. I appreciate any ideas.

You may need to use systemic Benadryl or another medication. There are times when only hydroxyzine, an old-school antihistamine/anti-anxiety medication works for me. However, if you havenít tried the AHA creams or Sarna, I would start with those first. Amlactin, Cerave, and Eucerin all have AHA creams.

I took your advice and took a Benadryl last night. Went well.

Iím finding everything I try works well for one night and flops the second. Iíll take it again tonight and hope this is the trick I need.

Thank you for the suggestion 😊

Chlor-trimeton is another old-school one that seems to work for itching (and makes you drowsy). If Benadryl doesnít work for more than a day, give that one a try. Honestly though, there are times when only hydroxyzine works for me and I need multiple pills. It is used in much higher doses for anxiety, so you can often get it prescribed for one to five pills as needed (10-50mg) for itching as the anxiety dose is typically 50-100mg at a time. That said, typically with an AHA lotion in the morning and a second (eczema-oriented) lotion at night, typically I am fine with just the one pill at night- either a Benadryl or single 10mg hydroxyzine. This is on top of the Zyrtec I already take in the morning.

I used to have this and tried Gold Bond, which made it 100 times worse for some reason. Then I tried baby powder and in spite of the skin being dry, it helped. I used it for years and now no longer have itchy feet. Maybe they sweated under the covers while I slept and keeping them dry helped - that's the only thing I can think of. Even if I put lotion after a shower, I used the powder at night, last thing.

I don't know if this has been suggested so I apologize if it's a repeat but what about the detergent you use to wash your sheets?
It seems maybe all of your skin would itch if it was that, but you never know. I would find a detergent that is free of fragrances or other suspect chemicals.

See you are still having issues. Try Exederm. I use it on a patch of eczema, on my ankle. When I have other itching, I use it there.....works great.
