Aight doc, First off I wanna say you do a awesome job here and Im REALLY glad you came<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
I have a weird problem and If you can knock this one out or anyone else give me a little answer then its gunna help me alot,

Ok everytime winter comes and I work up a sweat like Im working out or at the job moving quickly to generate some sweat, and when I do I'll get really ichy ALL over, mostly my upper body, It really sucks, But I dont have this problem in the summer, It seems like when I sweat and it cools down with the cold air temp it gives me some sort of reaction, I don't understand it, I beathe throughly twice a day, before and after work, Ive had this problem ever since I was younger like 8th grade, and I have no clue what it is. Anyone understand this or am I just hella weird!?

Try a different laundry detergent.

It may also have something to do with the heaters kicking in for the 1st time of the season.

Or it may be because of that lil ghetto whore you have been spending all your money on.<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

Hehehe...

Seriously though lantra, you probably have a skin condition like exema. I have a very mild skin condition and am generally itchy more in the winter. I use hand/face cream on my face to stop it from itching after I've shaved. I think you probably just need some kind of moisterizer.

When you get the rash ALL over your body is it hive like with little bumps everywhere? Does it burn? Itching it, does that provide relief? How long does it stay?

As far as that being as a direct result of a detergent, it's possible, but should be present year round. If this occurred in the summer, I would say it's a heat rash. Since it occurs in the winter it may be due to the fact that the air is getting dryer from the heating systems. This in turn starts to dry your skin out slightly and when you sweat out salts, other electrolytes(things that keep blood PH balanced), and toxins they in turn have a reaction with your skin causing it to be inflammed and itchy. It is also possible at this time your skin becomes sensative to detergents and fabric softener that are present in your clothes (one way to check this is to see if where you get the rash the worst is the area your clothes are rubbing). You live in Nevada right? Isn't the humidity level already low there?

One more area to rule out as well. If what type of foods (supplement, etc) you eat on a regular basis, changes in the winter, then this may be a cause too! Possibly food allergy.

Here's some things that you can try.
1. Drink 1 gallon to 1.5 gallons of water a day (if you aren't already)
2. Get a scent free and color free type of detergent.
3. If you use a sheet type (ex. snuggles) or liquid fabric softener use only half of what you previously did.
4. Get a humidifyer for your home and possibly one for you at your office (if you have a private office?).
5. Get some corn starch in a powdered form. Put it on the rash area before you work out. It will help neutralize the chemicals your body releases when you sweat.
6. You can try some of the over the counter anti-itch creams (non-steroidal anti-inflammatorys)as well.

Actually its a very quick and sudden iching, not burning, and no iching it doesnt help it just keeps comming, one time it lasted for about 5 minutes!

I think so too! because it accures when I get hot or break a slight sweat, like jonas said, I think I have a skin problem.
