Stinging Rash due to Sweating

Hi,

I am a 27 years old male and have experienced this problem for about 10 years.  Everytime my body temperature rises, my face will turn red and feel of stinging sensation due to initial sweating. After sweating for more than 5~10 minutes however, the irritation will subside but return at a later time after my body temperature has cooled down.

I have noticed the problem to be under control when I am in environment of high temperature and high humidity. I experience frequent occurence in Fall and Winter in dry weather environment. I do minimize on hot shower and apply moistruizer but it doesn't seem to be much help. Appreciate any advise you may have Doctor.

Thank you!

It sounds as though you are describing not a disease but your body's particular pattern of sensitivity.  If so, there is little you can do beyond avoiding the conditions that trigger your unpleasant sensations.  A visit to a doctor, perhaps with photographs of your skin at times of peak annoyance, may possibly yield some suggestions.  From this distance, however, I don't have much else to suggest.

hello.
i myself suffered from a very similar condition as you.
I went to go visit a family doctor, neurologist but they themselves seem very uneducated/inexperienced. after running some basic tests, they would just jump to conclusion and tell me that perhaps it might be a "normal condition" which i might just have to deal with. they were neither good listeners nor supportive, but all i got from them was their arrogance.
i would much rather have them admit that they don't know something than act like they know something just to portray this doctor figure image. ne ways... because of this horrible experience, i ended up wasting whole lot of money,taking time off from work, taking unecessary MRI's....

i myself am not 100% sure that you might be suffering from this.. but please read this website.. and i hope that it will be helpful to you as it was helpful to me.
wishing you the best.
