Hi and welcome to Healingwell :) Allergies can manifest themselves in many different ways. It sounds like this is your bodies way of coping with them. Have you tried any over the counter medications such as Benedryl? It's great that you got a hypoallergenic sheet for your bed, but what also may help is an air purifier for your bedroom, curtains or blinds should be washed quite frequently, keep your windows closed, don't let any dust settle in your bedroom, cover you pillow with an hypoallergenic pillow case. The reason I mostly focus on the bedroom is because we spend so much time in there and while we are sleeping, if somethin is irritating us, since we are asleep; normally don't move.
When you go to a friends house, I'm assuming you spend the night? If you are, you should explain to your friend(s) what severe allergies you have to certain things. And see if they can wash those sheets or whatever before you can spend the night. If they won't do that for you, have them stay at your place. A sleep over is not worth the discomfort. If you find yourself in a situation where there is no choice, bring some allergy meds along.
To help with the burn, try using Aveeno cream or any other cortisone cream. Aveeno is more gentle. Avoid heavy lotions and use a cold wash cloth.
Good luck and hopefully some of my tips will help you.
