I have been really sore all over the past few days and my skin feels like it is on fire.  Everyone says I feel like I have a fever.  Any suggestions on how to get rid of this or what it might be.
 
 
Thanks,
 
Cyndi

soak in the tub, dont make the water to hot but have it warm/cool to cool off your skin, not only will your body get to relax cus who doesnt relax when they are in the tub but maybe it will help with the fire feeling in your skin, just a suggesting


Hugs and prayers,

Cyndi, if this is something new, it would probably be a good idea to call or see your doctor. Have you been able to take your temp to see how high your fever might be? There was another post on here about burning skin, but I'm not sure if yours is the same if it's due to a fever.

I'm sorry you have been feeling so rough these past few days. The bath that Suzanne mentioned would probably be soothing - maybe add some Aveeno oatmeal bath to your bath - it's really soothing.

Hopefully you'll get some answers soon. It is a good idea to monitor your temp though and make sure it doesn't get too high. A lot of the members here advise calling your doctor if your fever gets over 100.5.

Take care and keep us updated on how you are doing. I really hope you get some relief soon.

cyndi,
I have the burning thing too,it drives me up a wall!Nothing seems to work,it used to be like hot flashes,now it's down right burning-usually my face and upper arms. I wish they could figure out a reason behind it. I used to fill the tub with water and ''dunk'' myself in it several times through out the day,I don't know what to advise. Do you get it in the face? I think that is the worst for me because it starts to swell now. The doctors haven't said too much other than watch the fever ,but when nothing works,it is hard to deal with. If something works for you,let us know,my mood swings are wild when this happens! Crystal

So, I am NOT crazy!!!  yeah

Even though I do not have Lupus (that I know of), I HAVE THE SAME BURNING SKIN-- on my upper (and mid) back!!  I am so sick of everyone telling me that it is "just" a hot flash, 'cause none of them has ever felt like their SKIN was burning!  I am just so glad to hear that anyone else has ever had this, and I appreciate ANY ideas of how to deal with it!! 

My UPPER BACK BURNS TO THE POINT OF PAIN most days, all day; and, as I have oily skin, my shirts smell (kind of like a pillow from dirty hair) from the fevered back in about 3 hours, and I am having to change shirts multiple times a day. 

MY NORMAL TEMP  HAS ALSO GONE HAYWIRE (LOW) in the last six months and I have not even been able to figure out what my new "normal" is, though I have been as low as 94.5...  But I have not made it "up" to 98.6 in about six months, whether "feverish" or not.  confused

MY DOC IS about TO TEST ME FOR CUSHING'S, due to other issues, but there is nothing about this symptom there... 

I am in perimenopause, but I have four sisters, and none of them has ever had anything like this in their peri- or post menopausal symptoms, so THANK YOU ALL for being there!!!

I CAN ATTEST TO THE LUKE-WARM BATH BEING A HUGE HELP, and I cannot wait to try the oatmeal Aveeno addition; thank you!  Anything else that works, we'll all have to share!!!  I am so sorry for those of you who have it on the face; I did not even realize my back was probably swelling, but it wouldn't be any fun to have to watch this, as well as feel it... 

Just pity me that soon it'll be over 100 for the next six months, out here in AZ... eyes

Hi Janet and welcome to HealingWell. I'm glad you found this site - we are a very supportive group and I hope you will continue to post here. I look forward to hearing more from you.

Mary, I also wanted to welcome you and I really hope that the doctor can soon figure out what is causing your symptoms. So many of us know what it is like to know something is wrong but the docs can't figure out what it is. I really hope you get some answers soon so you can get some treatment.
