Why do my legs always get red when I take a shower?

Everytime I take a shower, my legs get really red and itchy. Is this normal?.

Update:

Even when I take cold showers, my skin gets itchy and red.

Update 2:

Actually, I have oily skin and I moisturize my skin everyday.

    It's a form of urticaria. Try more tepid water and see your allergist

    They can get red if the water is hot but that should no make them itchy.

    it sounds like your getting Vasodilation  when the water is warm and Vasoconstriction

    when it's cold.

    this is normal,find the right shower temp that matches better with the temperature out of the shower.
