Heating Pad/Hot Shower causing itchy feeling?

Hi, Just had to post this to see if it happens to anyone else....Sometimes when I'm taking a really hot bath my skin starts to itch really bad.....I'll scratch it for awhile and then the next day theres these little dots? where I scratched the skin at...It almost lookes like broken blood vessels under the skin or something...They fade away after a few days but I just wanted to know if that was normal...I get the same 'itchy' feeling between my thighs(where they rub together) after working out...Does anyone else have this happen? The most recent time happened when my arm hurt so I put a heating pad on my arm high directly on my arm and left it there awhile...after a few minuted I felt this extreme itching sensation so I took off the heating pad and scratched it pretty hard for a few minutes...Then I put the heating pad back on it and turned it down a little and slept like that, stupid, i know...Anyway, the next morning I had the rash thingy on my arm and I just wanted to make sure thats what it was from.....If anyone has any insight to the heat=itchy theory and/or why it happens please respond...thanks!

Re: Heating Pad/Hot Shower causing itchy feeling?

It's normal to get itchy and scratch so hard you get little hemorrhages under your skin - [U]if[/U] your bath is too hot!!! It sounds like you need to lower the water temp and lay off the heating pad a little bit. Why are you doing this - are you too cold? There's got to be a better way to get warm.
