    For the past 10 years I've been dealing with an unknown skin condition in which I am inside an environment that's above 28 degrees what feels like hundreds pins slowly push through my skin from head to chest, it is both painful irritating and highly unbearable. This condition only occurs from fall to spring, I live in a region of canada that is prone having rain for weeks, humidity may be a factor in this condition since I cannot sweat during this time of year.

    I tried to take this to multiple practitioners and to no avail. Dehydration is not a factor since this year I've forced myself to drink copious amounts of water but there is no effect.

    There will be times where I will be on my knees in excruciating pain and in the end I'll have little red bumps all over my skin. I have not been able to find any form of remedy, home or medicinal, Doctors have tried to prescribe allergy meds but still nothing.

    tl:dr I think I have a rare disease that no professional can figure out what it is and I'm looking for ways to lessen the symtoms

    Yeah, sounds pretty unusual to me. I'd suggest searching it on the internet and consulting with a specialist physician - probably histologist.

    It's not an allergy since I've been prescribed multiple antihistamines but no avail.

    I'd also suggest moving out to Northern parts of the country with cold and dry climate, maybe Alberta, Edmonton..

    There's a viable suggestion however, the prairies are flat and boring as hell

    Hopefully this should help.

    Thank you, secretary protocol.

    At this point I am going on 2 hrs of sleep, as I have been up all night on call. However, have they given you steroids? There is a skin condition which is super sensitive skin, essentially, but in my lack-of-sleep delirium I cannot think of it at the moment. I'll post back when it pops in my head. Do you get skin marks really easily like if u take a pencil eraser, or pen cap and lightly draw on yourself?

    If you're talking about dermatographism, it's not quite it. The closest I've been able to research was Cholinergic urticaria, hoever thre are inconsistencies here and there

    Your symptoms will never exactly match up with the disease symptoms.

    Even though you might think it is not an allergy, your probably allergic to something that nobody knows about yet. If it was a disease it wouldnt go away for six months and come back over the period of 10 years. Have you consulted a dermatologist at this point?

    Not everyone follows the books exactly. Unless your body studied medical books before you were born.
