Soreness on back of heal that is deep and feels itchy

Posted by Denise M on 4/09/02 at 21:34 (079003)

The pain comes and goes, but when it is there,when I stand on my foot it tingles on that spot. The outside feels itchy and is on both feet. It's located on the calcaneus bone posterior to the calcaneus tendon.

Denise,

Just a thought but is the area swollen. I guess it might be hard to tell because of the location. But when my arches are very swollen, my feet get unbelievably itchy! Same thing happened when my sprained ankle was very swollen. I just assumed it was a symptom of the swelling.

Maybe one of our capable doctors will know the answer!
