My skin constantly feels hot to-the-touch but I'm have no fever. I have had my thyroid checked and all test results are normal. What can be causing this symptom?

  • You definitely have an infection of some sort. Fever is the body's defense mechanism and the heat is actually the white cells fighting off the infection. When I once experienced this, they diagnosed me as having a bacterial infection and prescribed heavy duty drugs.Have an in depth blood test taken to check for viral and bacterial infections--especially bacterial infections. trace backto when you first started having this skin hot tothe touch issue, what triggered it? an insect bite, a visit in the hospital, a cut a wound? and take it from theregood luck

  • Finally, I found some one else with the same "hot skin" problem. I don't know if you are still around to read this reply or not, but I will tell you something I have tried that has helped.I know exactly what you are talking about - feels like you have a fever everyday, all day, but when you take your temperature, there is no fever. I have started taking 3 items that have helped reduce the hot skin feeling. Some days it is gone completely. 1. Co-Q-10 (An emnzyne found in each & every cell in your body which give each cell the energy to perform its particular task in the body. 2. OMEGA 3-6-9 blend 3. Promise Activ Supers Shots by the manufacturers of Promise Margerine) found in the grocery store in with the yogurts (To possibly help reduce cholesterol--contains 2 grams of natural plant sterols (one bottle per day).I believe the Omega 3-6-9 blend and the natural plant sterols is what reduces it the most. Read up on Omega 3-6-9 and the benefits of taking omega 3-6-9. I have only been taking these things for a short time, however there is a big difference already. I hope that this info might help you also.

  • every time my girlfriend lays down - she starts burning up - i can't get near her because of how warm she is, almost to the point where she's so hot it burns me, her surface temperature has to be above 130 degrees - i am convinced something is wrong with her, but she says she feels completely fine - has anyone heard anything like this before?

  • No one will probably want to hear this, because it is too simple, but... many people these days do not drink enough water. My wife was like that, almost never drank water, and her skin was very hot all the time, but no fever. I didn't like it, and thought it was weird. When she went on a diet where she had to drink 8 glasses of water a day, it went away almost instantly. I believe that without enough water, your body cannot sweat normally to cool off, so the blood comes near the surface in an attempt to cool off. After a while, she got back into her old bad habits of not drinking enough water, and it comes back sometimes. When it does, I remind her. Try it for a couple days, it won't hurt anything and it won't take long to see if that is the problem.

  • I have had hot skin for the past 10-12 years. I have had numerous blood tests and nothing there. I drink plenty of water and work out hard 3 days a week. I am in top shape for being middle age, but cannot identify why skin is so hot. Wife can't lay next to me, unless she is so cold, but usually moves away due to being so hot. Temperature is usually under 98.6. Researched it online and it might be FUO, Fever of Unknown Origin. I put temperature strip on skin and it shows over 101, but nothing with internal thermometers. Willing to try anything, as I get even hotter when having sex. Taking a toll on sex life, as I am too hot to touch.

  • I have been hot to the touch for 4 years. I have been to three specialist because everyone around me hates to touch me and they are always cold when i'm comfortable. I am 46 and have had a hysterectomy so of course they want to attribute it to menopause. I am currently on Effexor which has as a side effect a calming of the syptoms but I findonly my extremities are really cooling off, my tourso is always really hot. When i lay down at night and try to cross my feet it actually burns where they touch. I also have a problem with blood clots. does this sound familiar to anyone. HELP

  • I am a 57 yr old male who feels so hot at night while laying in bed that I constantly have to move to a "cool spot" on the mattress until it warms up and I must move again (about every 2 minutes). Needless to say it is very hard to get to sleep like this. Last night I took my internal temperature - 97.4 - and measured my skin temperature - between 90.5 (legs) and 97.5 (neck), so it doesn't seem like my skin is too hot. I don't sweat, but am very uncomfortable and failing to get a good rest.I intend to try your suggested remedies even though my skin isn't hot - just feels that way.Thanks.Finally, I found some one else with the same "hot skin" problem. I don't know if you are still around to read this reply or not, but I will tell you something I have tried that has helped.I know exactly what you are talking about - feels like you have a fever everyday, all day, but when you take your temperature, there is no fever.

  • I also get the skin hot to the touch - it originates from my tummy when I had sugar during the day. I'm not diabetic, but according to my homeopath I'm sugar sensitive, so my body reacts to sugar as if it is a poison. I can't even sneak a sweet during the day because my husband can 'feel' it in the evening when he touches me. Does anyone else have the same problem? A online doctor said that the reaction is due to overproduction of insulin following the intake of sugar. Linda

  • Yep - me too. 45 y.o. male in apparently good health. Non-smoker (quit 9 yrs ago), vegetarian, don't work out but am not overweight.Never known what it was/ is & have had it for the last few years. I can feel the heat and I tend to sweat quite a lot from activity (not heavy activity mind, but I walk fast everywhere).I'm a useful hot water bottle for my wife in winter, but the rest of the time ... not so good.

I feel cool and have the cover all the way up, but he says just to touch me almost burns his skin. He thinks it's great in the winter because he doesn't need an electric blanket. He's trying to figure out how to harness it and sell it back to the electric company.This has been going on for 30 years that I know of. My first husband said the same thing. It just seems there has to be a medical diagnosis for this, or a list of illnesses for which this is one of the symptoms.

  • I am currently on Effexor which has as a side effect a calming of the syptoms but I findonly my extremities are really cooling off, my tourso is always really hot. When i lay down at night and try to cross my feet it actually burns where they touch. I also have a problem with blood clots. does this sound familiar to anyone. HELPI am also on effexor and constantly feel like I my skin is burning up, but have goosebumps and feel chilly. Is this a side effect? I try to drink alot of fluids, but it doesnt seem to help. dry mouth is an effexor side effect so i drink alot but could drinking 2-3 cups of coffee a day+bottle of diet coke + sugar free energy drink be cancelling out the effects of drinking water/green tea etc. I drink rehydration drinks also sometimes but this does not seem to help, its really annoying and i feel constantly horrid but no fever.

  • Hi, I’m 17 and I’m getting the hot skin thing too, and have been for a while now. I’m not sure if I’ve always been like this or not because I only noticed it a few years ago when my friend told me how warm my skin was even though it was winter. I’m constantly going around in vest tops, especially in the summer when I sweat tons and when deodorant seems to fail me. I take a water bottle to school every day and usually drink it all and then fill it up again during the day, and then when I get home I drink quite often as well, so I don’t think it’s really the lack of water. My friend hardly drinks at all and she always feels cold when I feel fine. I don’t really mind it, and my friends tend 2 use me as a heater during the winter which is pretty funny, but I have had heat stroke a couple of times in the past 2 years, and I’ve never really had it before I noticed this heat thing. I would love it if someone would give me some kind of logical explanation for this, just to know I’m not secretly a werewolf and my parents haven’t gotten around to telling me yet, lol.

  • Skin turns pink, remains hot & pink, no temperature, no racing pulse, just hot, hot, hot. It was so warm for my sister that she sat outside in 30 degree weather for 15 minutes. She wasn't doing anything physical, in fact, she was in a sound sleep. She has Raynaud's and calcinosis on her fingers & red spots all over her body. She denies scleroderma, thinks lupus or autonomic neuropathy. Does anyone have any ideas what it could be? She only has Medicaid and no one will see her-other than a GP who thinks it was a hot flash.
