Can't imagine that this has any relevance to Raynauds and Scleroderma but last Monday the palms of my hands began to itch and also the soles of my feet were very hot and itchy - felt as though I couldn't stand still as it was so irritating. Went to GP who asked all the usual questions - have you changed washing powder, used anything new on your skin. Answer to both these questions - NO. He prescribed an antihistamine - Fexofenadine and also gave me some Eumovate Cream. Yes, the meds have stopped the itching but |I'm wondering how long I will have to keep on taking - I think I take enough tablets already without adding more. Have tried leaving off the antihistamine but the itching comes back and I have to give in. Has anybody else experienced anything like this?
