    And i recently started to go to the gym :eek3:

    Anyway, i've just been doing cardio stuff and a few light weights (i'm really unfit :hsd: )

    But i've been getting this mad rash on my arms and my legs... looks like sweat rash or something but lasts for days and drives me insane...:o

    Anyone have any tips? Could this be some fungal condition or something? I got some fungal cream from the pharmacist but it seems to make it even worse :wtc:

    The rash is little red spots and also scaley a bit and really dry, and if i itch it (its fucking itchy) it gets lumps like hives or something...

    What part of your arms and legs? Are they touching pads on the machines?

    could possibly be chaffing

    get some of this if its a real problem

    and FYI, a complete weight lifting routine with heavier weights will burn more fat then cardio alone. make sure your diet is in order.

    Weird, I had the same problem for a while when i started, the doc said it just looked like exema (or whatever dry skin is). It went away after a while, and hydrocortisone cream can help with temporary relief.
