Is Burning Skin, Especially On The Back Along With Pain Throughout The Body Considered A Fibro, Flare Up? Thanks!

It's very cold here but I am mostly indoors. A friend said the cold triggers flare ups and also Summer humidity triggers them also...ugh
What to do??
The burning/sensitive skin, any suggestions for that?
Thank you!!

Leave it alone, it will pass. No touching, rubbing, massaging, blowing air on it, nothing at all. Worst case scenario benzodiazepines might help but need prescription.

I have the burning/sensitive skin especially after a shower. I have learned not to take really hot showers which I love. I also have HORRIBLE breakouts on my legs. Dermatologist can't figure it out but they itch also. I only take a shower every other day in the winter, use a great moisturizer but also turn the water to cool for a few seconds. Yes, it is uncomfortable but after that, I turn the water back hotter and you don't have to make it very hot for it to feel great after the colder water. It has made a TREMENDOUS improvement in that stinging and tingling of my skin. I live in GA so every other day in the summer is NOT an option. Maybe the colder water will even feel good then.

Magnesium rub or Epsom salts bath
Cold air can definitely flare your skin
