@donasmrs-- Yes, it can. But the itchiness should be there all day, not just at night. I had athlete's foot years ago and I remember having burning, itchy feet for weeks.
Now I have itchy feet at night because of diabetes. It's actually how my diabetes got diagnosed. Diabetes causes circulation problems in feet. It also causes very dry skin and both of these lead to itchy feet at night. I'm trying to keep it in check by taking my medications on time and eating healthy and exercising. I also keep my feet moisturized and warm. But I still get itchy feet at night fairly often.
Are there any other diabetics here experiencing the same problem? Have you found anything that helps with diabetes caused itchy feet?
