I feel your pain. I've been under a lot fo stress recently and both of my legs are itching and covered in tiny red bumps. I'm at a lost as to what I have to do to get rid of it!

Do you have any previous allergies?

Do you usually shave your legs?

How would you describe these little red bumps? Are they reddish and do they contain pus or a clear fluid?

What events, conditions surround their onset?

Aside from stress, what are other possible triggers?

I will appreciate your response to my questions as they will help clarify some points.

hi i have the same problem as melissa allen. i have gotten this rash before last year, and it went away, but know it has came back this week when i mistakenly shaved my legs dry. on both legs, they are on the shin area and around the ankle. they are  hard red patches of bumps, in some areas they even ooze clear liquid. i think what triggers this is my shin guards, when i play soccer, because last year this broke out when i played soccer as well.
