My skin breaks out in a burning, itchy rash, sometimes with blister-like welts when exposed to heat or cold. Does not have to be sun (although the sun will do it). Just BEING hot doesn't do it (I can be involved in physical activity that might make me sweat and not break out). Just a few minutes in the sun makes my arms and upper legs break out. If I cross my legs or arms for a few minutes I break out in the area my skin was touching.
I get itchy all over in the heat, its because of sensitive skin. If its not because your in the heat, I don't know.

At first he thought it was a dandruff that has just moved down. I never have flakes, however, I do have itchy scalp. The heat allergy makes sense. He also prescribed Doxyclycline which has done nothing after being on it for almost two months. The only other medication I'm on, besides what he has prescribed for the condition listed above, is Estradiol 1mg and Prometrium 100mg. I wondered if that was causing it when it comes through my sweat glands. He has not given me any antiallergic medicine.
