I got a fitbit (purchased at Sam's Club ) around June 2014. It came withe 2 bands black and lime green. I wore the black one without issues until it wore out.... around March 2015 so I switched to the lime green. About a week later the area around the band started to itch. I wore it a little longer thinking I may just have to get use to it plus it was expensive... to me. The itching got worse so i stopped wearing it. My skin got worse, now the texture of my skin in that area is is bumpy and discolored.
