    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.
