After a long time of being away from the Philippines, the heat of summer is keeping me uncomfortable. I got some allergy all over my body. It started a few days ago after some exposure to direct sunlight during travel. Despite the airconditioning, the sun heat is still penetrating on the skin.
I took some anti-allergies over-the-counter medicine, however, after a couple of days, I decided to consult a GP / Dermatologist who said that the most probable cause of my skin irritation is heat allergy. I was prescribed a medicine and adviced to stay in cool places, avoid crustacean foods, furry pets & clothings.
My case was not an isolated, heat allergy is now becoming pandemic. There are several people I know who are also suffering from the same skin irritation. Probably, in my case, the sudden change of weather & environment has also a factor.
As an advice to other people, avoid the direct sunlight exposure.
