For about a couple of weeks now, I have had real, real bad itching on my hands and my feet; JUST my hands and my feet, it's nowhere else on my body yet.
I scratch and scratch and there's no marks or anything at first, just normal skin. Now, I'm not sure if its coincidental or what, but on my hands and feet, there are small red spots and welts that develop. Some of the times these red spots and welts aren't even near the areas where I scratched.
Plus, on occasion, I wake up and multiple fingers or part of my hands are swollen. Like right now, it's just the tip of one finger that's swollen, that's it. It's not pressure sensitive or anything, it's just swollen.
I have a couple of pictures of the red spots I mentioned included in links below. The red spots themselves do not burn and go away on their own with lotion and me not scratching, but they eventually come back.
