    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Itchy After Grappling?

    Seriously, what the ****. I haven't really been training grappling (first BJJ and currently Judo) for very long, but every single time I grapple, the next day (or maybe a few hours later), I'm itchy as HELL. If I stay inside and don't sweat at all, maybe just sit there and play videogames or something, I'm alright. But if I move around at all, or go outside, I itch like a bitch, and I rhyme all the time.

    Does anyone else experience this? I mean its my arms, legs, chest, back, shoulders... its terrible. Completely unbearable. Why does this happen? :tard:

    1) Try changing the washing powder.

    2) Use fabric softener ( grappling gi's are rougher )

    3) After rolling, when you come home take a bath with oil-based cleaning products.

    If that doesn't work ( in two or three weeks ) see a dermatologyst

    4) I would also suggest you buy some body moisturiser and use it as often as you feel nessisary. Sweating dries out your skin and unless you drink shitloads of water you'll need to compensate the loss of moisture. If it continues then see a dermatologist.

    You didn't say you were rolling without a gi, so I assume the washing detergent is a good first step. (Good call Z)

    Also, do you get hives with other activity like running or lifting weights? Just a thought.

    Also try double-rinsing your clothes to make sure all the washing powder/soap is removed.

    What you feel isn't itchiness.

    It's the feeling of love and desire you felt when you got intimately close with your grappling partner, this in turn manifested in the tingling feeling you currently feel.

    Go to your partner, tell him you love him, then let the tingling feeling go away.

    ...

    No seriously, this might be a medical condition, have this checked by a dermatologist.

    Don't worry, it's just mat herpies! Oh yeah! don't touch you're weener. (hint)ymas would not have been my first choice to post this. It's probably nothing, see a doc just to make sure. Benadryl is your friend.
