well... hello im jamie.. im a 16 y/o australian male.. very active.. pretty fit..
But I developed a rash.. symptoms are like heat rash.. EXCEPT I HAVE HAD IT FOR OVER A YEAR!.. when i first got this i was on a school camp in melbourne.. and we stayed at a hotel..
After this trip i started developing this rash. it started out being mild.. just a little bit of it.. so i thought maybe i got bitten by something. Then it got pretty bad, so i went searching and found that it mite be heat rash. Went to the doctors and he said there is nothing he can do about it. but we got blood tests which showed nothing..
I have changed washing powder, soaps, shampoos but nothing..
It appears when i am nervous, startled, scared, exercising, in the sun to long, in water/river/pool/beach to long, in hot stuffy places, or when im hot. Sometimes i will get a hot flush before i get it. Or if im out playing a bit of basketball for 5 minutes, then i will get nothing, but then if after playing for 5 minutes i come inside where it is hotter i will break out in the rash.
Also during playing sport or exercising i wont be affected as much as when i stop..
I get it a fair bit because im active. But i tend not to be so active now because its very annoying when it get the rash. It itches and stings. I get it all over my body, and it starting on my face and neck now. When i first got it, it was only on the abdomen area, then spread to my arms and thighs, and now it is my whole leg, whole arms, back/chest and now my face and neck and head.
the rash appears as raised red bumps on my skins.. vary in size.. when skin is taught they are white. When i scratch nothing comes out.. they dont pop.
They disappear after i have been in a cool or nice temperatured place. can take anywhere from 15 - 50 minutes to clear.. then its like it never happened..
any help would be appreciated..
i should be going to the doctors this week.. so if u have any suggestions that i can put forward to the doctor... it would be handy :)
