Showing results for 'Nobody can figure out what is causing it (not yet), but at random times I get strong,painful itching on the top of my hands mainly. Other times it is the top of the feet, ankles or wrist. No redness, visible swelling, or rash. I have tried lotions, cooler showers, creams, hydrocortisone, and calamine lotion. Also tried allergy meds. No change. Last night putting an ice pack on the areas helped more than anything else. Anybody with this same thing or heard of it before. My rheumy said I need to see a dermatologist if it continues and a rash-there is no visible sign of something wrong other than me scratching or grabbing the area in pain. Could this be neuropathy? Does not seem to be medication related. Thanks in advance for reading this. I'm assuming it's something related to RA.'
