8 year old is in tears over burning legs. ( they are not hot to touch) seasonal allergies are bad. Burning swollen itchy eyes. Why are legs burning?

8 year old is in tears over burning legs. ( they are not hot to touch) seasonal allergies are bad.  Burning swollen itchy eyes.  Why are legs burning?

Uncertain: Seasonal allergy is not related to burning legs which may be a neurologic issue. If your child has eczema, it may be from the excessive dry skin which may be relieved by application of a moisturizer 2x daily preferably with at least one within 3 minutes after bathing. You may also try a 4% lidocaine lotion to see if this helps. If problem persists, see a doctor. ...Read more
