Boots make calves burn and itch all night

Post by okie143 » Sat Dec 23, 2017 1:23 pm

Couldn't find another place for this so I put it here.

I hunt in Rockey Lynx 18" high snake proof boots. They are a mixture of leather and cordorba (spl) fiber.

I wear cotton boot socks that go all the way up to the knee.

My problem is that when I take the boots off my calves itch like crazy all night. I use foot powder and lotion but it doesn't seems to help.

I change socks everyday and that doesn't help either.

Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution for it? :|

If you rule out dry skin, and I mean dried out. The next thing would be an intolerance, or alergic reaction at a low level to rubber which is more common than you think.

Good Luck getting it figured out,

It might be the socks and not the boots, Try another brand of socks.

Try marino wool socks. They are expensive, but cotton can do weird things once it gets sweaty or warn a bit.

It so hard to choose... Just get one of everything.

ditch the cotton socks, and try something a little thicker
