I can relate to the hot skin but I tend to get it all over my body, it really stinks. If I am out in the sun, and get it all over, I get creases where my clothes were hitting me, etc. I burn, itch, swell, and hot to the touch, but no fever. I hold a ton of water in but my kidneys are fine, I just show as a big allergy.
I do not know if you have Sjogren's Syndrome, but if you do and carry the Ro/SSA antibody, than you are prone to eventually be very sun-sensitive.
Hope you find relief. I found that taking activated charcoal tends to help the hives and stuff subside for a while anyway.
