... the soles of your feet and palms of your hands. I started having this 6-8 wks. ago out of nowhere and I don't know what is causing it. Lately, I am starting to itch all over and the only thing that helps is if I take 1-2 benedril tablets. I do take quite a few medications daily and have for some time without any problems. The itching gets so bad that I think I will go crazy.
