Hello, i am a 17 year old male and a High School student
Ok so every time in winter when I am about to do a activity (Boxing, basketball, running, etc..) or even stand under sun my skin starts to itch very painfully, its mostly all over my upper body and legs. It is really really painfully, it feels like someone is poking me with thousands of needles all over my body. But once I get sweaty it goes away. Sweating makes it go away. Or either i have to cool my body down by pouring some water around my body. And now I have started feeling that the itching attack creates small little white pimple looking things all over my body. Once I get sweaty they go away as well.

It even starts even if I m sitting in a classroom. For example when I get nervous, confused or when my body start heating up and it creates the itch and I cant get sweaty in class, so I really have to try my best to annoy it, usually it goes away after couple mins when I cool down. But it’s not like a one time thing, it happens to me every time I m in those kinda conditions (nervous, heating up etc...) Which is part of everyday's life.

I went to my doctor and she sent me to a dermatologist but that was in May and my itching thing was pretty much gone and so he couldnt do anything. Lately I been using Eucerin Anti-Itch calming cream, i really cant tell if its working or no. it does makes it a little better and makes the itch bearable for a while.
