I hope I'm not allergic to my sunscreen!!! 

I am allergic to my sunscreenCry. Oxybenzone is one of the ingredients in it and it's common for people to have an allergic reacton to it.  Actually, my allergic reaction got pretty bad that year and I wound up going to the ER. I keep hydrocortisone onhand during the summer months just in case I start breaking out.

I was wondering if anyone else has this problem.......My skin is very sensitive to ANY heat! In the summer, if i'm in the sun, my skin will not only itch like crazy and turn red and blotchy from me scratching soooo hard!! That's not all, even if I eat something hot(soup, coffee etc) my mouth will start to itch inside. If my dishwater is too hot my hands will itch.......really, really itch! I even tried to get a parfin wax on my feet, and uuugh $$#@&!!, it was torture.....itching really bad. I've tried sunscreen and it still doesn't work. I can't even enjoy thw sun in the summer bcs it breaks me out so bad and makes me itch and scratch something terrible!! I haven't taken the time to see a dermatologist yet, i just try to stay away from the sun/heat. I've heard of people being sensitive to the sun, but my sensitivity is not only sun, but any heat.Has anyone heard of this or experienced this?
 
I'm sensitive to sun and hot humid conditions as well and my skin breaks out in hives and sometimes blisters in place where my skin never get mch sun (like my feet).I can't even wear sunblock (I believe I'm allergic to oxybenzone which is found in most sunblocks) beause that makes me breakout even worse. The only things that have worked for me were cool showers,  keeping cool by staying in the shade, drinking plenty of water or just indoors with A/C. It also helps to wear light colored cotton fabrics like linen, gauze.

Laser technology is best today for sensitive skin.  The laser provides new hope for the sensitive skin of a wide range of warts that are resistant to traditional therapies, without presenting a high risk of scarring. A complete beauty laser centre which provides some special features that fulfill the skin needs of today.

I have the same problem and I will definately buy some hydrocortizone cream. I hope it works for me. I bought 110 spf sun block too lol

That you have is rosacea I have it to, avoid hot, sun, to much cardio work out, and spicy food...
I keep it under control by using metro gel or metronidazole, there are also antibotic for that but only if it is serve rosacea I didn't used them. Also do not use piling, just very gentle cleansers, with no alcohol or scrub in it, everything need to be gentle.
Zinc is good to, you have them in baby creams for bottom.
Coconut milk and raw honey helps to if you love natural remedies, as cleaning with Epsom salt.
Avene have creams for it Dirosel and for calming skin Anitrogues, but since in USA more remedies you can search and find on line, like physicians formula and similar.
Try search on line for more.

I recently went to the dermatologist for this problem and i'm not sure he understood black people skin. He kinda rushed over what I was saying and just gave me a prescription for cream to sooth the itching and told me to go see my family physician bcs it may be an issue with my thyroid. He says people with thyroid problems are highly sensitive to the sun. Although this may be true, I'm not sure this is what my problem is because i can even eat hot soup and the inside of my mouth itches, or I can sit under the hair dryer and my scalp turns red and itches soooo bad and my face swells up, so it's not only heat from the sun that bothers me but ANY heat, even if the water that I shower with or wash my hands with is too hot, i itch miserably!

Its possible that you are ...
Try Hydrocortisone ointment on your skin.
The itching will go away pretty quickly.
