    Hi out there, has anyone come across Bronchiectasis / Mastocytosis affecting the feet. This patient is female, in her 40's and is generally hypersensitive to dust, mites and pollen, but for the past year has had a 'crawling itch' in the soles of her feet with no visible lesions but does have dry feet. I have recommended a urea based cream and to try to stop scratching and irritating her feet. I cannot find anything online or elsewhere about this condition affecting the feet and would be glad of some feedback as this lady is demented with this, and is convinced it has something to do with her diagnosis of these disorders. Ta Cathy

    Hi Cathy great to have you join in. I notice you have been a member for some years. Ongoing itch is a difficult one to treat. Cool packs are often a help. Lower the Temp of the skin.

    I suggest that you repost in another forum. Not all read the intro's.

    I look forward to some of our colleagues assisting.

    Warm Regards
