Allergic to Central Heating and heat

Posted , 2 users are following.

My face flushes and looks like an over rpoe strawberry every time I am exposed to central heating.  I do not tolerate summer humidity, either.  I am very fair skinned, a redhead/blonde.  Any ideas on why this is?  It is quite embarrasing at times!

    I am not trying to be mean, answers to this question should be by your Dr.

    We as lay persons can help and provide ideas in the diabetic arena. Because we are familar with what works for us and maintaning our diabeties.

    I do not tolerate humidity well either because I am allergic to mold in the air. Tested by a Dr with a lot of pin pricks when I was young.

      Do not understand why this discussion has found its way into your arena!

      I am alaready undergoing tests for RBBB and am awaiting a total hip replacement, but RBBB has caused that to be cancelled.  

      My thinking was that the two may be linked:  that is RBBB and hypersensitivity to central heating without any form of ventilation

      Hi Kathleen:

      A through medical work up was done prior to major surgery.  The optimal thyrod levels are between three and five.  Mine is 4.9 - borderline low.  GP wants another done shortly.  However, the cardiac problem and echocardigram appointment have called a halt to absolutely everything for the forseeable future.

      Many thanks for your input.  Needless to say, I am absolutely miserable, as I have no idea what the cardioligist is looking for, or even if there is anything wrong!  Something else may have shown up, that my GP is not telling me about!

      Kind regards,
