    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    This condition started in about January 2012. It comes about once a month and will go away for a few weeks and come back. It's fine in the A/C but gets really painful and itchy in the heat. I haven't been to a doctor about it yet... trying to figure out if I should or not. Can someone tell me what this might be?

    Hiya Jeanine and welcome,

    There really is no guessing at this, and no one can diagnose over the internet. It's time to go to the doctor about this and get some answers.
    He/she should be able to diagnose and help you to figure out what this is and treatment.

    You can visit WebMD's Eczema Health Center , and seek info there. But follow up with the doc to be sure.
