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?
