I have this tendency to develop red rash all over the body with itch whenever I am exposed to even a slightly hot condition. A little heat while cooking near the stove, a small walk in sunny area between building shadows or even any kind of excitement like excess laughing, happiness causes this.In winter, a thick fleece jacket keeping me warm a little longer causes this.On top of it, a bath with hot water also causes this.I dont know wat to do.It is just temporary- I run and hold my hand under the tap or stand in the AC's cool air or find a shadow and it goes!! it appears as red patches of rash all over the body- legs, hands, chest(mainly), back neck, face...I have seen it closely and see small bumps/ boil like things in those areas..
I am a student and cant afford a doctor here at present. Will be going home in abt 6 months and getting it diagnosed.I have realised about this problem after I moved from India to United States.Never had any problems earlier.I have doubts over change of climate-direct sunlight/UV exposure of the US day time that my skin cant take.Also I have a lot of bedbugs at my place which could be a cause.Please let me know if anyone has a similar problem.Any kind of temporary advice or guidance would be like magic potion for me.Take care u guyzz..live strong!!
