Itchy leg...


I sit at a computer for many hours and my cardiologist prescribed compression stockings. I bought a pair from a store that sells medical supplies. They were fitted to my foot and leg dimensions. I found them uncomfortable and would make my legs itchy if I had them on for more than an hour or two.
So, I ordered some from Amazon that were a size larger and kept them on for at least 6 hours. When I removed them, my legs and ankles were uncontrollably itchy, worse than the previous pair. I got no relief from scratching.

I researched reasons for itchy ankles and one symptom was diabetes. Ruling that out as my weekly sugar levels are in the normal range and I'm doing brisk walking 4 to 5 times a week.
I put some Benadril anti-itch medicine on the affected areas but it only worked for an hour or two and an itchy episode came back.

How do you cure an itch?
You scratch it... I did and broke the skin. This started a viscous cycle.


This all started 2 months ago. My leg swelled so much I went to the doctor. He had me go for an ultrasound to be sure it didn't create a blood clot. Simple test... no clot.
The medical technician thinks I've got an allergy to the material the stockings are made from.

Since then I've been to the doctor a few times, dermatologist a few times, had antibiotics twice, two different steroid based ointments and the pain, swelling and redness persists.

Another trip to the doctor got me a referral to a vascular specialist and tomorrow I go for a test to see what is causing the swelling and pain.
