My fellow peeps with POTS, or anyone who wears compression socks for any other reason, do your legs get itchy after you take them off? Currently the tops of my calves get very itchy whenever I take my socks off after wearing them all day. I try to only wear them when I’m at work or am going to be somewhere I’m expecting to have to stand for long periods of time. I don’t know if it could be something with the fabric or maybe they’re too tight? If anyone knows anything about this and/or could recommend any brand(s) or types of compression socks I should be looking for it would be much appreciated! Thank you!

      @Student_girl I think they do have seams at the top. Getting athletic ones are a great idea since I work 12+ hours a day. Thank you!

      I’ve tried a bunch of different ones and I’ve found them all to be itchy. I guess it’s just how I respond to the compression 🤷‍♀️

        @frogs this happens to me with most socks, especially compressions socks🤷

      Do yours have funky seams at the top? Some do and that can be itchy. Look for seamless ones or rolled hems. Or do you sweat in them? Since they’re so tight, sweat getting caught in them can also be itchy. Try some meant for athletics with moisture wicking fabric
