“I live in the Phillipines, a tropical country, sudden change of temp, sweat and cold wind [that trigger reactions]. ~ E. S-N.
My daughter reacts in the middle of summer sometimes. ~ L.M.K.
[I Live in] La Grande Oregon however I lived in Jacksonville Fl and had a harder time there than I do here. The humidity there made me break out at a warmer temperature than I do in Eastern Oregon where it is a dry cool.
Ft. Lauderdale, FL. The humidity is killer! I was just fixing dinner in a hot kitchen and my back is itching like mad. It happens when I exercise too. The sweat cools the skin. ~ D. P.
Air conditioning can be pretty bad too. Walk into a building and immediately start itching. ~ M. D.
[I live in] Tucson, AZ. Early morning temps just now approaching my 65-degree trigger for symptoms. ~ S.K.
