Why is it that my legs itch everytime I go walking?
For the last couple of years, Me and my Boyfriend would go for a walk and we would make it half way around the block and my legs would start itching... it would get so bad that we would have to stop our walk and head back to the house. What is the cause and how can I treat it???

Hi there!

Itching also known as pruritis, is a symptom of a wide variety of mild to serious conditions. It can result from dry skin, infection, inflammation, allergy, insect bites, fungal infection, dermatitis, allergies, hives, scabies or liver diseases causing jaundice; while only a few of these respond to anti-pruritic creams. Though environmental allergy is a likely possibility in your case, I would suggest you to visit a dermatologist for an evaluation and treatment.
Hope this was useful.

Take care!
