Patient :Hi there, I do not quite know where to start but I'll try my best to give you as much info possible, for about 8-9 months I have been experiencing very painful itching on my skin, it occurs when I become quite warm and when4 I get anxious and hpanic the pain only gets worse, visible symptoms on experiencing are very red skin on my chest and back and wrists where the pain is most intense and on my wrists upwards I can see small little bumps I'd call them. I have seen my gp multiple times and what they prescribed me was e45 cream which does cool my skin but if the pain is very intense it seems useless, antihistamines do keep me mildly ok for about 6-7 hours (length of school time) but or and when I do activities like pe for example the itching can get very harsh, the worst incident being after a swimming lesson whilst I was getting changed my skin began to itch tremendously and I did come close to fainting but a high sugar drink did prevent that from happening.
