I was diagnosed with fox fordyce disease on April 15th of 2011. I have it in my armpits. I was told for the past 2 years that it was hives since I have allergies also. I am now not itching so bad but I have pain from not being able to sweat. I can sweat from my neck up but nowhere else. Everything I have read about this disease (which isn't much) doesn't give me any idea what to do about the pain of not being able to sweat. Please advise...thank you in advance.
