    My legs get really itchy from outdoor exercise, every time. I also have no clue why and it's just never worried me but is annoying..

    If I workout for the first time in ages I'll get itchy legs. But once I get into a routine and work out regularly, it won't happen. Really weird isn't it? Not sure what the cause is!

    If you haven't worked out in a while, it's because your capillaries (smallest blood vessels) are expanding to allow for increased/faster blood flow. The weather might also cause it if it's particularly cold or hot.

    It happens to me occasionally too, it's really annoying to be on the treadmill and have a leg itch.

    I hate it, it happens to me when I am riding the stationary bike too. It makes me want to get up and scratch my leg off. However, I have found that a few well-placed scratches and some good music tend to resolve the issue. I think that after a while I just tune it out. Also, moisturizer or not does not make a difference for me!

    This happens to me, usually in cold weather. For me it is a combination of blood vessels expanding and the fact that it is so dry outside here. I moisturize with Eucerin calming cream and it usually makes it go away. :happy3:
