How I hate the itchy legs! I will try the anti histamine thing. Something that I always get, especially outside, is a runny nose :(

I used to get itchy legs also...especially if I would run early in the mornings and if it was a little chilly outside. Now, I just MAKE SURE that lotion up/moisturize my legs and back as much as possible. Maybe you have dry skin...just a thought. The claritan sounds like a good idea too...

I get horribly itchy legs (and other parts of my body, too!) when I walk, even though I walk every day. It can be so bad that I have to stop and wait for the itching to stop. If I actually scratch, it just makes things worse. I've found that taking an antihistamine (like Claritin) 20 minutes before walking helps immensely!
