Itchy Feet at Night

Tuesday, 29 March 2022 00:00

There are many people who experience itchy feet at night. They typically do not have foot issues during the day but may find their feet to be itchy when trying to go to sleep. There are several reasons why this may happen. The condition known as Athlete’s foot may contribute to itchiness at night. Additionally, dry skin may play a significant role and may be remedied by using a good moisturizer. Research has indicated that nerve damage caused by diabetes or liver disease may result in itchy feet at night. It may help to manage ongoing stressful conditions, which may even provide mild relief. If you endure itchy feet at night, or know someone who does, please schedule an appointment with a podiatrist who can determine the cause and provide various treatment options.
