The palm on my left hand has been itching me for several months now. it is not red unless i have been uncontrollably scratching it. There is no bumps, no rash, no outer sign of why it would be itching. Sometimes it will itch for hours, even waking me up from a deep sleep. It goes away sometimes but then it comes back. Started in january. Ocassionally my right hand will itch but not for long and not near as bad as the right.
I don't have any idea what this could be.
I googled it and the only thing i could find about a left itchy palm is that i am going to be giving a lot of money away. So since i don't really have that option i need to see what else i can do to get the itching to stop.
TIA

Its a long shot, but since your post looked lonely, maybe it would be worth trying some anti-fungal cream on your palm for a couple days to see if its yeast-related. Sometimes fungal infections don't turn bright red or have any obvious signs except for mad itching.

do you have a good recommendation for anti fungal cream?

Well, you can either use an over the counter cream for vaginal yeast infection, or over the counter cream for athlete's foot - I believe they both contain the same amount of anti-fungal.
