Am I allergic to heat?

This is a problem I get each winter. Never in the summer though even on hot days strangely.

If I've been walking outside in the cold (even though I'm wrapped up well and warm) and then I walk into a warm room I start feeling itchy and shaky.

I get large red blisters that appear all over my thighs (only there) that itch and feel very hot and I have trouble breathing sometimes. It's virtually impossible to stand up so I have to find somewhere to lie down.

After one hour of lying down the blisters completely disappear and everything is back to normal, not a sign of them anywhere.

I really wish this would stop as its hell, especially the burning itching.

Am I allergic to heat possibly? Anyone else have these one hour blisters when entering from a cold outside to a warm interior?

Re: Am I allergic to heat?

Yes, some people actually do have allergic reactions to heat or cold. It's called a "physical allergy."

You could see an allergist for treatment options. An antihistamine such as Zyrtec might help prevent this problem, also.
