: I recently took up running again. The first time, I could only run about 10 minutes not because of pain or breathlessness, but from itching. After about 5 minutes I was itching so much in my stomach, legs and butt that I could hardly stand it. I ran again last night and it was better, but I still itched some. I figure this will go away after another couple runs, but I am really curious as to what is causing this. When I was younger this never seemed to be an issue when I would start running.

: Any thoughts?

I'm the same too. so I guess it was not just you. I can run for 30 min though and I dont feel it when I run. It's when I stop that rashes start to appear. I think it has something to do with heat triggering skin reaction since sweating happens in no time. It's a rapid process. My friend suggested it could be from the clothes rubbing against your skin so try wearing bicycle shorts undernesth your regular one. well hope that works
