Question sensitive to spandex

just wondering, if anyone is experiencing skin rash on areas where spandex touches skin. it started only on lower legs where the socks touch the skin,
now with new boxers which contain only 5% spandex the same thing seems to be happening. itchy rash, dr said possibly contact dermatitis, will be checking with dermatologist to confirm. anyone have this reaction?

Re: sensitive to spandex

Very common allergy. Many women have this problem where the elastic is around the waist and the legs.
