I am 17 but even as a kid I got this weird very painful heat rash on my feet I couldn't wear socks and sneakers was incredibly painful. The affected areas will turn red while the rest of the skin turns a dark purple. It feels like my skin is on fire and using cool cloths actually makes it worse. Nothing I can do helps. It feels as if someone is holding a lighter on my feet and they don't sweat. It happens in the heat or the cold. Around the age of 12 it started happening to my knees and chest. It happens less often there but almost every day to my feet. Walking, resting. It really don't matter what I'm doing or have been doing. My doctor completely ignores me when I bring it up and I'm at my wits end I'm losing sleep and everything because of it. I've tried lotions and using a fan changing the type of socks I wear if I wear any. Someone please tell me if this has happened to you before and what caused it. I've been tested for diabetes so it's not that.
