Strange skin reaction after mild exercise?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Im an overweight 36 year old who just started exercising with an eliptical. I noticed afterward my upper legs are red with strange white blotches and feel odd to the touch. It doesnt hurt but is a sensation I cant really descibe. It lasts about 10-20 min. Is this a sign there's something wrong or is it just because of my weight and will go away once Im thinner? image

    Hi Gryphon spirit sorry i can't help you with your worry, I too am overweight and can't really get into the right frame of mind to start dieting,I want to lose at least a stone and a half, I usually walk the dog and I have an exercise bike which is sometimes used as a clothes horse, harder now when there is a lockdown 😟

      It really is hard. exersize is just so boring. I'd rather be reading or playing computer games. I'm hoping that maybe its just that I'm so out of shape that my legs are reacting to a small work out at though it was a marathon, but I'm also worried it might be a sign of a circulatory problem.
