Whenever I wear any clothes with elastic I get like hives around my waist and (when i'm wearing underwear) where my legs meet my torso (what is that area called, groin?).  Hubby thinks its chiggers, but I'm not thinking that it is because it's only when i wear elastic.  

my suspicion is that it's because my body is depleted.  i am nursing a 7mo and a 3yo plus I have a 6yo.  i just feel drained.  maybe i just need to take an iron supplement again.

a friend with a latex allergy can't eat bananas or avocados, but i can eat those okay.  

have you experienced this?
