I am here to help you with your concerns.
You are suffering from heat intolerance.
However there can be underlying conditions.
Excess red blood cells like polycythemia vera can cause this.
Urticaria is a more common benign condition.
Mastocytosis or mast cell malignancy is another less common possibility.
complete blood count with differential should be checked.
This started about 3 years ago, will it ever go away?
That is a good concern.
I will suggest you to get a blood count with differential.
Is there a number in the blood count that I should look for?
Yes red blood cell and white cell count.
In the white cell count, eosinophil count should be paid attention to.
Okay I will do this...Thank you
and I will suggest you to see an allergy specialist.
Anti histamines like loratadine and ranitidine can be used together to combat the symptoms.
Okay Thank you
