Why do I have itching feet and hands after gardening?


Answer by  Tiara (351)

You may have very sensitive skin that becomes irritated by the plants and grass from gardening. There may be something that you are using that can cause irritation or it may just be an allergic reaction from this activity. You should either call your doctor or buy cream/ointment from your local drug store.

Sometimes, some people feel itching or soaring in their feet and hands after gardening due to the allergy. The simple solution for the same is using rubber gloves and sleepers while gardening. You can massage the hands and feet with mustard oil to get rid of the problem.

While gardening it is good to keep your hands and your feet protected. There can be bugs and plants that could irritate the skin and cause you to itch for long periods of time.

This is due to alergy with the mud, pot-mixture and the manure we use for gardening. The chemicals used in the manure is the factor causing the itching on the hands and feet. Allways use the gumboots for feet and gloves for the hands. Even some of the chemicals will react on the gloves too, Be careful!
