That sounds very uncomfortable.  I will tell you that I have a patch on my foot and have had it for about 8 years --  um hm, right?  And I've had it in two spots and it becomes like a thick area of skin that itches like a mother and then peels (then it might really hurt). It comes and goes.  Never have had a diagnosis. I have only mentioned it during my annual physical though and not been to a dermatologist.  BUT, it's one foot and two spots.  Manageable overall.  

You are having this on soles of feet and palms on a regular basis and it is related to your cycle?  When I was pregnant I had the terrible skin complication that some women get of itchy hands.  I was miserable.  I used hydrocortisone on it per my doctor's recommendation.  Any topicals help?  Anyway, that during pregnancy is due to hormones.  I guess I think of that because you have this in a cyclic manner related to your period.  

Something to explore is dyshidrotic eczema.  https://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/eczema/dyshidrotic-eczema#1  You do seem to have the symptoms of this.  Take a look at the link and see what you think.
