how do you know you have an allergic reaction to the heat and/or sun?

my mother speculates that I may have an allergic reaction to the sun. I haven't done anything differently and have never known to be allergic to anything. my scalp just started burning out of nowhere and it itches like crazy. my right arm has been burning the same and itches. I have little red bumps on my skin. the same ones my toddler gets when its too hot.

that's hives. I get them too in the heat. the pores open in the heat and allergens get into them that way. I'm not sure if its the sun per se. its probably something in the air that gets into your pores and causes this reaction. in my case I'm allergic to dust mites and when its hot out, I get more intense rashes. see an allergist. the best way to cool off hives is with some chili. eating spicy food will sweat the allergens out

That happens to me too sometimes. I think the cause is excessive pollen on the exposed skin. Well, just taking Benadryl works for me.

Well, are you standing in direct sunlight? Because if so you may be getting a sunburn to your scalp, anywhere else, it is mostly because you have a possible case of prickly heat. Hope this helped!:)

Polymorphic light eruption (PLE)
This itchy rash is the most common of all sun allergies. One in six of us suffer from it.
What it looks like These multiple small red itchy spots or blisters are more common in women than men - although it is not known why - and normally start in the late teens to early 20s.
