    Right, ello people...

    This is a problem which happens once a while.

    When i start working out... or doing some sports, I get really really itchy and painful parts on my front torso and on my back...so I have to stop and then they gradually fade..

    any ideas?

    Thanks.

    Ahh, that happened to me a few years ago actually, my back and my head just got horrendously itchy! I've got no idea what it is or how to stop it, sorry, it doesn't happen anymore luckily.

    I am pretty much stumped, although perhaps it could be a circulation issue? When you exercise, your heart rate increases and your stroke volume, and this increase could cause a reaction in you?

    Best to visit your doctor, they'll be able to examine you and maybe run a few tests to get to the bottom of it.

    Good luck!

    Does this happen when you're wearing the same type of clothes or is it indiscriminate?

    I get heat rash on my legs when I run. I've just given up bothering about it and am used to it now. Not the sexiest thing ever, bright red legs, but as long as I don't scratch it or anything it goes when I stop.

    Its not heat-rash, it used to happen to me just before I started sweating.

    I think someone told me it could be hyperventilating once.... anyone else familiar with this//?

    Hmmm. Try putting moisturiser on the previously painful/itchy areas before you work out and see if that makes any difference.

    Sports scientists don't actually know what causes itching during exercising. Possibilities are, reactions to washing powder, sweat, clothing and maybe certain pollens from plants. Not very helpful I know, so just grin and bear it!!! what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger (so 'they' say)!
