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?
