    I have recently been to see a podiatrist about my itchy feet. He removed 3 corns next to the ball of my feet. The itching is occurring underneath where the corns were removed. Between the ball of the feet and the arch. It happens mostly in the middle of the night. About 1am. There is no sign of any fungal infection. There is no excessive sweating. We thought maybe a mild form of psoriasis. I have been using hydrocortisone cream. This helps a little but the itch is not going away. Does anyone have any other ideas? My podiatrist is out of ideas. This keeps me us for about 2 hours every night. It is starting to make me really depressed.

    Certainly is odd.
    Maybe get an opinion of a dermatologist.

    It could be a liver condition. I’ve had ICP which is intraheptic cholestasis during pregnancy, it’s a very little known about disease. Starts with uncontrollable itchy hands and feet, nothing helps the itch or relieves it. Occurs mostly at night/evening. But people who aren’t pregnant can also have Cholestasis, where the palms of your hands and feet are uncontrollably itchy and nothing seems to help it.

    • VICKS VAPOUR RUB. I had similar itchy spot on the arch of my left foot for 6 years or so. Tried prescribed ointments, all the scratching tools etc. My father recommended vicks, and it worked. Cover all the itchy spot and really spread it around your foot, don’t rub it in, fairly thick covering. Put on a sock. Do this in the morning, then wear the sock all day, replace again at night. Follow this routine for a couple of weeks. Mine is now COMPLETELY GONE, totally worth the goopy foot for a couple of weeks.

    *It can be your leg circulation or more likely a neurological Nerve issue, visit your general provider and ask for a specialist. *
