Itchy sole of foot with no visible rash

I am 38 right now and during my mid-term of my last pregnancy 4 1/2 years ago I developed an intense itch on the sole of my left foot. Approximately right above where the heel starts in the dead center. The itch was so intense that I would scratch so hard, even using objects such as a dull butter knife just to satisfy the internal itching. There was absolutely no rash, redness, bumps or fungus. I went to a podiatrist, message therapist, and a dermatologist, but nobody could diagnose it. Finally 4 years later it is much better, however it still itches from time to time. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? I was diagnosed with Lichen Planus during my pregnancy as well and as that went away aprox. 2 yrs ag. However I recently had my first repeat mild flare up a few months ago due to some increased stress at work. This time I only had 4 spots on my body, two on the vaginal area and 4 on my tongue. I have no idea if this is related to the itchy feet as I never had any spots on the soles of me feet. Somebody I spoke to had itchy feet and palms during pregnancy and it was liver related. The only liver history problem I had was when I was a teenager and began to develop Reye Syndrome after taking Aspirin during (right before) a breakout of Chicken Pox, my liver was infected and I was hospitalized for several days.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Lichen planus is a skin disorder that produces scaly, purplish bumps with white lines or spots. It is thought to be an autoimmune disorder, or one in which the person produces antibodies against his or her own tissues. This abnormal immune response may be triggered by a viral infection. Lichen planus develops slowly and usually goes away in 18 months. However, in some people, it may last for many years.

Symptoms of lichen planus may include:
• flat, purplish, pimple-like bumps mostly on the wrists, lower back, shins, and sometimes the genitals
• hair loss
• itching
• lace-like white lesions occurring in the mouth and on the mucosal surfaces of the genitals
• painful sores in the mouth and genitals
Symptoms become worse if a person feels stressed.

Lichen planus is thought to be an autoimmune disorder that may be triggered by a viral infection. This disorder may develop after exposure to certain medications, dyes, and chemicals, including:
• gold
• antibiotics
• antimony
• arsenic
• chloroquine
• diuretics
• iodides
• phenothiazines
• quinacrine
• quinidine

Isn't funny how they say this is thought to be an autoimmune disorder, but appears after exposure to chemicals/metals/toxins which are all completely unnatural for the body to absorb.

(Remember also that just because you don't show all symptoms doesn't mean it isn't still the same thing.)

In my opinion a virus may have started it, but exposure to these things is "feeding" it.

Someone else will have to suggest a remedy.

All I can say is detox and avoid.

Thanks, is Niccoleum an oral treatment or an ointment for the foot? I am not familure with that and I could not find anything on the web by that name.
lucyloo last decade
That is a homeopathic remedy. And I think it's a typo for Niccolum.

I also have extremely itchy soles of my feet with no visible rash or anything. I have no other skin disease, have never been pregnant, and am only 24. No idea what it could be, maybe allergies?? If you have found something to work to help stop the itching, please let me know!
