Question:
I realize this may sound odd, but I have had an internal itching within the tips of both my index fingers and index toes, for many, many years, since I was a child. This itching feeling never really goes away, but I can sometimes manage to block it out. I am really curious what causes this, and if there is a cure. I am guessing it may be nerve related, as scratching, etc. never relieves the itch.

Answer:
Thank you for your inquiry. This sounds like 'formication' (polyneuropathy) but would be highly unusual if starting in childhood and staying in only the fingers and toes. None of us have encountered this before in this type of presentation. We assume you have seen a doctor before for this - were there any changes in sensation found on physical examination? Best regards.
