I play a lot of racquetball. A few weeks ago, I noticed that after about 30 minutes of play, my skin is itchy or tingling over my large muscle areas. (butt, quads, hamsting areas). It subsides after about 45 mins. I tried a lot of skin lotion the night before, but no help.
I don't itch any during the normal day. Although I did notice that those same areas were a little itchy when the local weather warmed up into the 60's last week. Weird, huh?
Has anybody else experienced this?
