I am a 44 yr old female who has been living in the US since 1993. I am from Egypt. Since my last visit to Egypt in 2003-2004, I have been sufferring from rashes or hives (heightened bumps on skin, or just very red skin at certain parts) all over my body during these times: after warm baths, during driving (especially at the bottom of my feet), becoming angry, or nervous, when it rains and I am exposed to the water, when it is cold, and sometimes during the night I wake up and itch!

If I am shopping, and the weather outside is hot, and the weather inside is cold, I break into severe hives that appear on my mouth, neck, eye-lids and ears, and all over my legs, arms, buttocks, etc. But I do not have any rashes on my genital parts at all!

I have had eczema in the past, and I suffer from dry skin, but I have always tolerated heat very well! I love heat! I do not suffer from any respiratory problems associated with rashes. I suffer from chronic constipation, and sometimes lethargy. Please help! Thanks!
