Heat and eczema: There are a couple of possibilities. Some people with eczema do worse in the heat, particularly in humidity (although arizona should be pretty low in that). Staying cool and treating the rash is the way to go. Also, you should be checked for photosensitivity depending on the distribution of the rash. Sun sensitivity can also make people break out in an itchy rash. Please see dermatologist.

It's not normal: Most commonly people's arms or legs "fall asleep" after they have been resting in a position that compresses the sensory nerves to the respective area(s). If this is happening when your not in particular positions that are "squeezing" on your arms and/or legs, then follow up with your doctor.
