What Would Cause My Face To Swell Due To Exposure To Sun Or Even Just Heat?

I have a condition that began when we moved to a warmer climate. If exposed to the sun or heat my neck developes welts that almost turn purple. My face will swell, turn very red and itch intensly. It almost looks like a sunburn even if I haven't been in the sun.This also happens during excercise if I get hot. Thank you, Mary

Hi Mary... Sounds like you're having a frustrating time. I suggest you get a second opinion from an allergy specialist, who may be able to prescribe something to reduce your sensitivity or discuss your options for controlling the reaction. I'm sure there's an answer that a specialist can help you find!

Best,
