    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    my period started this past saturday night. i wore tampons on sunday, but i spent sunday night at my boyfriends house watching movies and did not remove the last tampon i put in until almost eight hours after i put it in... i noticed wednesday after i woke up that there was a bunch of red bumps on my right arm near my elbow that itch like crazy, and now there are three more on my right leg... could i have tss? or is it something else?

    It's something else.

    You would probably be very sick if you had TSS - plus, it'd be something very difficult to miss if different from your day to day life. Eight hours of having a tampon in is long, but not completely outrageous.

    Maybe eczema?
