I exercise 5 days a week. I lift weights and do some cardio. Whenever I try running on the treadmill or on the pavement I notice that after a few minutes I begin to itch like crazy. The itching starts with my legs and move up to my stomach and back. I use to run three days a week when I was in the Marine Corp. and I never had this problem. Any advice would be helpful. Granite

  • It is possible that you may be experiencing exercise urticaria. This occurs during over exercising yourself to a point that it increases your body temperature thereby causing an itchy sensation in your legs and possible appearance of hive-like redness

  • Have you heard of any treatment for this? What research has been done on this subject?
