My body starts to itch when I start exercising or when I eat spicy food. It itches all year round; whether its winter, summer etc. I am staying in Melbourne at the moment.
I googled a bit and stumbled upon this disease-
Symptoms follow any stimulus to sweat such as exercise (sometimes called exercise-induced urticaria, see Exercise urticaria), heat from the sun (which could also indicate solar urticaria), saunas, hot showers (reaction to water can also indicate water urticaria), spicy foods which may cause an increase in body temperature or even stress due to blushing or anger.
Well basically I don't have the hives as mentioned as in the website but my itchness is similar to that. However I feel that my skin itches because of dry skin as I tend to have very hot showers. (but I don't itch when i have the hot showers).
Is there any other explanation than dry skin? Thanks in advance
