4 days ago I started getting skin weals which were incredibly itchy. These only occur in the late evening and night - start to get bad around 10.00pm and ease off around 04:00am. The only thing that has changed in my lifestyle is that 4 weeks ago I started exercising regularly and dieting to lose weight (down from 87kg to 81kg). I usually exercise around 5.00pm every day.
The weals are limited to the trunk area (including buttocks), although I also get itching around the groin and palms of the hands.
It may be some form of "jock itch" but I shower after each gym session and make sure I am thoroughly dry, it doesn't look fungal to me. If it is exercise-related why did it suddenly start, several weeks after I began exercising?
The weals and itchyness completely dissappear during the course of the night, leaving no blemishes.
I am not on any regular medication, although I have had a bad toothache that started at a similar time and have been taking paracetamol (recommended doses only) because of that.
