Normal to feel body itches and burning behind legs?

Recommended Posts

I’m 5 days into my first OB. The back of my legs are on fire. It hurts to have anything touch them even a skirt or sun dress. Is this normal for the scabbing/healing process? I don’t know what’s more painful right now- the constant feeling of my body being on fire or my genital area.

Hello @kp07

Sorry for what you're going through.

Yes, this is an expected feature of the infection as the virus is involving the nerve fibers stemming from the ganglia in the spinal cord and down to the limbs. I have had that feeling. Sunburn like and sometimes feel electrifying/burning. Are you on any regimen? Hope you feel better.
