Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
If the itch is not due to contact dermatitis due to something that comes in contact with your hand, then fungal infection should be looked at. This also comes and goes and produces severe itch with or without any visible lesion.
Extremely dry skin is another thing you should rule out. Also since soles of your feet are also involved, urticaria too should be ruled out. This can be due to pollens, pets, dust, dirt etc. It could also be due to something you ate. Since you don’t always experience it, keep a record of the food you eat and the activities you do in the past 24 hours when the itch starts. Maybe you will find a common link.
The symptoms could also be due to premenopause. Hormone replacement therapy may be beneficial.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
