Patient : I think I have eyrthermalagia. Whenever I do any exercise my hands and feet go bright red, sweaty and burning. I'm a dancer and I no longer enjoy dancing out of the embarrassment it causes. I'm only 14 and my mum insists its nothing and won't take me to the doctors. Is there some kind of home treatment or something? And ways to manage it? I read that elevation reduces it, but I can't exactly stand in dance with my arms above my head. HELP!! It's ruining the one thing I love doing and it's making me miserable :(
