How do I make it stop? My legs are red and itchy (have been since yesterday). I have no idea why...I was blaming my (not new) pants yesterday but it hasnt gone away. I am not using any new product for myself or clothes. I just want it and the red welts on my legs to go away. Help!!!

Did you go swimming? Could it be from chlorine?<br><br>
Is it hives? It could be from something you ate...<br><br>
I have no idea how to make it stop.

I was using the lotion at work yesterday. I would blame it since its some strange brand but I have been using it on my arms/and hands for weeks. I dont think its dry skin...

How's about trying an <a href="http://babyparenting.about.com/cs/healthissues/a/oatmealbath.htm" target="_blank">oatmeal bath</a> when you get back home?

Maybe a benadryl or some such product will help for now.

I almost took an allergy pill when I got up but I was afraid it would turn me into a walking zombie. Maybe I will have to resort to that.

I hope it's not bedbugs. I hear they're a PITA to get rid of.

How long have you been using that new lotion? It could still be that - sometimes it takes a few weeks for the sensitivity to develop. I wouldn't use any more of it until you know - and the benadryl would help you figure it out. If the benadryl helps, you're allergic to something.

I did drink a new kind of tea yesterday...I wonder if that could be it. The new lotion only went on my legs after they started bothering me. Hmmmm. I took an allergy pill and they dont itch so much now but there are still red bumps and welts all over my legs. <img alt="sad2.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad2.gif">
