Body Acne

Ok, so I have been exercising everyday for at least 30 minutes, immediately following I stretch & then head for the shower. I scrub my back & body w/ a puffy & oil of olay body wash. But by mid afternoon I feel itchy & have bumps/pimples on my skin. Is this or did this happen to anyone else & what can I do??

You might be allergic to your laundry detergent and it is not irritating you during the normal course of the day but the moisture after working out makes it worse. Try switching to one for sensitive skin/babies.

try "dropps" detergent, you can get it on It is single pacs of detergent that can be used in HE and regular washers. There is a unscented formula for allergies and babies. I've been allergic to tide all my life and this stuff is great! Good luck!

It might be some kind of a heat rash. It happens sometimes to me too if I've been exercising really vigorously.
