Skin feels very hot

Does anyone know why my skin feels so hot to touch?

Re: Skin feels very hot

We need more details. All of your skin? Are you on any meds and could it be a side effect? Have you seen a doctor for this?

Do you have pain? Is there discoloration? Is there swelling? If so, you might want to post at the RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy) forum here at Healthboards.

Try searching some of the sites in the sticky note at the top of the page.

Re: Skin feels very hot

Julie, thank you. I do take Advil cold & sinus for sinus pain and effexor. (very light dose) I do have swelling in my ankles and feet when the weather is very hot. Could it be a thryoid condition. I am overweight

Re: Skin feels very hot

You might want to post your question on the thyroid board, but usually an underactive thyroid (which can be responsible for weight gain) would cause slower metabolism and cool skin. Possibly hyperthryroidism could cause warmer skin.

I checked effexor at this website, and increased skin sensitivity to sunlight is listed as a side effect. ??

On another website for Rx's I read that burning is definitely a side effect of Effexor. (I can't share that site here.) I don't know if you have just recently started taking this, but even if not, side effects can crop up suddenly at any time.

It sounds like it's time to see your doctor rather than trying to figure it out on the 'Net. It could be your med, or if not, some simple blood tests might be very telling.

Best wishes,

Re: Skin feels very hot


Jewel2 gave you the best advice. Take what you have found on the 'net -- and get yourself to a doctor who can order tests to see if there is something to be concerned with.
