i have a skin problem which is affecting my everyday life and doctors say they dont know what it is.
when i get hot my skin gets unbearably itchy and i have to immediately cool down using water or a fan.
it only used to happen when i was doing physically challenging and exerting activities and wouldnt last very long. but now it can happen if i am just sitting in a room and its hot.
does anybody know what it is.

  • Awaitefe Have you had a CBC, to ensure its' not your liver. Are you sweating when this happens or are you dry? Because it sounds like heat rash or prickly heat (same thing). Cala

  • What soap and lotion do you use? Do you use fabric softener and/or dryer sheets - if so, I would avoid these and see if your symptoms improve...also I would use only detergents free of dyes and perfumes. Do you have an actual rash - if so, what is it like? Do you feel this rash all over or more on your trunk or limbs? DOM
