Hi! Just found this website, and I pray to God that someone might be able to give me some insight into what in my life might be causing me to have these reactions(stinging, red spots).
I am a 25-year-old man from Norway, and I have an appointment with a skin doctor on May 11th. But I thought I would explore this forum and try to find some answers for myself before that.
So this whole thing began (I think) back in the summer of 2015. Me and my girlfriend were on vacation in Turkey at the time, and the 2nd day of our trip we went on this boat trip. And as some of you might know, the sun in Turkey compared to Norway is like multiplied by ten. So we were out on this boat trip the whole day, sitting there in the burning sun with some low sun factor sunscreen and naturally the next day woke up with some nasty sunburns. It was at this time I began feeling this severe stinging sensation throughout my body, and sat in front of the AC most of the time the rest of the week. When we got home it was gone.
Then sometime during the fall of 2016 it started again. But this time I just felt the stinging sensation mostly on my feet while driving or sitting on my desk on my computer. This went on for most of the fall, until around December came along. On December 4th I quit smoking and started vaping to help me stay off the cigarettes.
It was around this time that things really got to a whole new level. I began feeling this stinging sensation throughout my body again, mostly on my head, torso and back, but also my butt and thighs. I also got these red spots on my body. Some were on my neck and face, but most of them were on my torso and back. And its been like this till now.
So do any of you have any suggestions to what might be causing this to come back and stay permanently? This has been affecting my life so much. I can’t work out anymore, I can’t walk through the mall without suddenly feeling warm and have an “outbreak.” I wake up in the middle of the night warm and have an “outbreak” and so forth.
Sorry for any bad grammar and/or spelling. Anything you might suggest could help me!
