Can rooibos tea cause muscle pain?

Can rooibos tea cause muscle pain?

It shouldn't: Rooibos tea is actually even used by some as a very weak muscle relaxant.

Itchy back: If he has dry skin then he may have eczema which means you have to moisturize the skin regularly in order to control dryness and itchyness and flare ups of rash. He also may get itchy back from sweating, and the effects of artificial fabrics or wool clothing-try to but plain cotton shirts and rinse out detergents well. I wouldn't necessarily attribute allergies as a cause unless he has hives. ...Read more
