Hi, recently I have just started at a new school and I travel for around 45 minutes every weekday to get there. Early this year I have started to notice that after I stand for a minute my legs get unbearably itchy and prickly. I have to keep moving my legs and itching them to get the sensations away for a few seconds. I feel prickly sensations like needles puncturing skin from my knee below to my ankle. My skin also gets red and blotchy and they itch too. I find that if my legs are sweaty or I am hot that the sensations come quicker, even after a few seconds standing, and get noticeably more painful. When I am standing in the cold my legs do not get sensations. In the past month I find that when I find a seat the sensations stay for a little while, I do not want these sensations at all times, they are unbearable and embarrassing as is. I have read on this site and others for diagnosis' of itchy red skin and they point to 'Ingrown Hairs' and 'Poor circulation'. I have noticed that my skin is quite dry and I have a few ingrown hairs on my legs. I have consulted a doctor and he has told me a that it is not serious. I have also a slight numbness feeling in my Left Big Toe at the tip. I have tried to use moisturizing creams and they have had no effect. I am 15 years old and my twin brother has exactly the same sensations in his legs. All my other family members have no sensations what so ever.
If anybody has any suggestions or remedies could you please let me know?
