hands itch
Hi there

I just like to know every time I walk or do exercise my hands start to itch so badly it drives me nuts. Do you know why this is happening. Im thinking maybe bad blood circulation?

Your hands itching in this way sounds like a vasomotor histamine release. You may be deficient in the B vitamins and vitamin E. Start by taking a good supplement of B vitamins such as Connect by Patrick Holford as well as a vitamin E capsule. Keep exercising but try to keep your hands warm if outside, you may be reacting to the sudden temperature difference of your internal bodyheat to the outside cool air.
