Twice I have experienced a burning sensation on my arms where the skin
has become red
. There is no itching or swelling. The second time, it spread to my chest and face. These came on suddenly, lasted about 20 minutes, then disappeared althogether. They happened about a month apart.
I am not on medications, but do take niacin (500 mg), fish oil (2000 mg), vitamin C (500 mg), and a multi-vitamin. The fish oil and niacin were prescribed for low HDL.
What can be some of the causes for this?
