Itchy, red bumps on legs!
I've struggled with this problem for nearly 4 years now, and I have no clue what to do. I have had eczema in the past, but this has been around even before that. My legs, especially my thighs, have red bumps everywhere. During winter especially, and when I sweat, my legs get incredibly itchy. I end up scratching my legs through my pants or jeans all the time. Whenever I try shaving, my legs turn very very red, and these bumps are easily cut. I've tried using over the counter lotions to tame this, and it ends up just making my legs itch even more. I saw my doctor for my eczema, and he had given me a lotion that used to be prescription, it has a type of acid in it that helps eczema and psoriasis (sorry, I forgot the name of the lotion). I've tried using that, and it soaks into my skin and helps, but my legs end up burning and become very red, as if I had just freshly shaved. I'm not sure what to do, I am incredibly embarrassed to show off my legs, and besides the skin problem, I think I look great. Any ideas on what this is, how I could fix it, or anything so I can be back in my bikini and lovin' life (and my legs)?
