I purchased a pair of scrub pants, the typical 65/35 blend fabric a couple of days ago. I washed them in hot water with extra rinse before wearing and I wore them 1 day for 8 hours. About 4 hours into the day, I started to feel a little itchy in the inner thigh area, but it wasn't overwhelming. When I got home, the itching was very annoying and when I took off the pants, my legs had a red, raised rash all over with more pronounced areas of redness around the seams. Especially the inner thigh area. I used a little cortisone cream and took an antihistamine which took care of the itching and the rash by the next morning.
I went out today and bought 100% cotton scrub pants, so I hope this won't happen again.
I'm just curious - anyone ever had this type of reaction?
