Tumi, it sounds like you might suffer from a physical allergy. This is a condition where allergic symptoms and signs are produced by exposure to physical stimuli, eg, cold, sunlight, heat, or mild trauma. If you’re interested in more information on physical allergies, you can e-mail me at CyberDoc@mwb.co.za and I’ll cut & paste you something. In the meantime, you can try taking an antihistamine like Clarinese® on a daily basis. Good luck.
