Hi. I've been using the Ginet-84 pill for a while now with no issues. However over the past year or so I've been getting really itchy legs and coming up with what looks like a red heat rash with raised red bumps. Heat seems to cause the itchiness e.g in a hot shower, wearing tight clothing. Do you know if this is a possible side effect of taking Ginet?
