How can I stop night hand itching?

The itching is waking me up at night.

Try using a good hand cream just before going to bed. There are several hand creams made specifically for use while sleeping to help relieve dry itchy hands. You should also avoid using too much hand sanitizer, because the high alcohol content can dry out your hands.

You can buy gloves for sleeping and apply anti itch and or lotion to the hand before sleeping. Put the glove on to keep the medication on the hand. These gloves are available at most beauty stores.

I would suggest trying benadryll or a generic antihistamine. You could also try a hydrocortisone cream to rub on the area that becomes itchy.

There could be several causes. If you are using a night cream on your hands, stop. If you are not and they seem dry or chapped, start. Try wearing cotton gloves over the cream. It might be a reaction to your soap or other chemicals. It might be something in your nervous system. Perhaps it's time to see your Doctor.

You could try putting on a strong moisturizer or anti-itch cream on your hands before you go to sleep. You might also try an anti-histamine before bed.
