    Cured! It started a few days ago and I know my diet has not been good at all lately, plus I've been eating too much sugar, which can make your whole pH acidic. Anywho, I drank a large glass of water with about a tsp of baking soda in it and it is gone now only took one day. Gone by the next night. Will be following this up with lemon water instead of all the soda I've been drinking from now on so this doesn't happen again. You can check your pH with strips or just try the baking soda water..can't hurt.

    It's possible that it may be a form of plantar fasciitis. I have had itching that seems to come from deep inside both of my arches with no visible external symptoms. I suspect I may have overstretched the tendons during my yoga class. It doesn't always have to be sports-related… Perhaps yours is this type of injury.

    It is tarsal tunnel syndrome where the nerve that runs along the arch of the foot to the big toe (medial plantar nerve) becomes irritated when passing through the tarsal tunnel behind the maleous process. Like carpal tunnel in the wrist.

    My itch started in my early 30's. I'm 44 Now.
    It is an internal, uncontrollable, unbearable itch on the right side of the ball of my right foot.
    Itches SO BAD like there is a worm in there.
    I use keys, screwdrivers, cement and my left big toenail to scratch it at night when it acts up the worst.
    It comes and goes. I'll have it for a few months, then it goes away for a few months.
    I have tried every topical cream, but to no avail as the itch is internal- no outer pro lens other than the hole I've created from scratching it so hard.
    I use essential oils for other purposes and one night I tried something. I mixed equal parts Thyme and Sage oil. Applied it to cotton ball then covered with a Band-Aid. It actually works, praise be to gawd... But I'm finally seeing a doctor tomorrow morning because I will demand that they cut my freaking foot open and fix this.
    It's crazy making.

    I've had this more than 20 years.... I've just been six months clear and it's flared up again, I've scratched it so badly I yet again have a massive blister!
    It's only my right foot, nothing visible (except the blister), and it feels like it's right inside. I mentioned it to the doctor about 15 yrs ago and he wasn't really interested!
    I've scratched it with everything! Come on, someone must have an answer!

    I have the same issue!! It sounds weird but I stole my daughter's Barbie because the hands and feet on Barbie are just pointy enough to relieve my itching without the flexibility I get from using my nails.
