    Hi
    I don't get itching as such but quite often get funnst / unusual feelings in my feet. My gp said it is the inflammation in my lower back pressing nerves etc.
    Do. You bhave back probs? - could be that.

    I do get very itchy feet so have one of those long handled brushed to help. I believe it can be a build up of dead skin caused by my inability to soak them in a bath as I can only use a shower.Sometimes my partner gives them a towel down to remove the dead skin after a soak in a bowl of hot water and this does help.

    Best wishes

    Hi Joanne,

    Yes I have been having the same problem for some months and at the side of the nail looks a bit red. They itch and swell like crazy. I have put anti-histamine spray that I have and creams and nothing has helped.

    On Monday I showed it to my rheumatologist and she said it's part of RA when it's not controlled.
