My legs are revolting

By , December 2, 2017 6:46 am

Ha ha ha, I meant “revolting against me” but “revolting” as an adjective works too!

It’s been in the 40s and 50s here lately and I’ve been enjoying wearing shorts for my runs!

My legs however, have not been.

What started as a tiny red spot on the inside of my right knee, has now spread to cover most of my entire lower legs. SEE PHOTO HERE (I did not want that photo to be what shows up on Facebook and in Feedly, ha).

It really itches, and is irritated if something touches it.

I am not sure if it’s windburn, dry skin, a reaction to chlorine (I swam yesterday), or a reaction to the stuff I put in my baths. Or a combination. I’ve had patches like this on my legs before, but never this much!

Whatever it is, OUCH!

I am going to wear tights for my run today. And maybe put vaseline on my legs. An obviously stop with the baths.

    Ouchy. Maybe put some hydrocortisone cream on it! Such a cute pic of Khali ❤️

    Ouch! My legs get like that in the winter, and it’s usually a combination of overall dryness and windburn. Vaseline should help, or maybe try an extra thick body butter (and if you don’t have one, shoot, you’ll have to go to Bath & Body – assuming you’re not already there for candle day 😂).

      I will have to find one! Maybe one without much scent added in case that is irritating it.

      Sigh, the candle sale. I knew I couldn’t handle the stores so I loaded my cart to check out at midnight and was bummed I couldn’t use my 20% off (since you had to use a code to get the candles). I didn’t get any. Did you go?

        Eucerin is usually good for stuff like that, and you can get that at the grocery store.

        I loaded up my online cart (Terry even picked out some scents!) but didn’t make my purchase fast enough – everything was sold out by the time I got around to it!

    Yowza, that looks painful!

  5. Holy cow! That’s insane! I hope you’re feeling a lot better now, and that you’re able to pinpoint what happened to make sure it doesn’t happen again!

    • kilax says:

      Thanks, I am feeling better! I think it was windburn, so on these odd warm late fall windy days, I am going to put vaseline or something on my legs when I wear shorts!

    Oh that looks so painful!! I’ve had the from my Veet…every so often it’ll react with patches of my legs. Last time I went on Steroids and it cleared up faster than usual.
