We live in a tropical area where room temperature is anywhere between 25-28 degree celcius. I am used to more hotter temperatures as I am from a coastal city. My boss (the owner of the startup) always turns on the fan and it makes the part where we sit cold. Having asked him to turn it off for sometime previously I have met with negative responses. I find him intimidating with his smile but condescending language.
At times I can ignore this cold air and work but at times my hands feel too too cold to type anything. I also suffer from a condition where my skin breaks in reaction to cold temperature. It makes me itch all my body which probably is not a good visual in office space.
There is no option of work elsewhere because ours is the only floor that has monitors and related people sit next to each other so nobody is willing to trade places with me. Downstairs floor albeit quiet has no monitor and working on code on my 11" laptop is not very productive for me. I can't seem to figure out any hack to overcome this situation. I'd rather quietly fix this myself than talk to him because it seems like nobody else has this issue.
Background info: Am new to the workspace and because of colleagues poking fun at my eating and buying habits previously, I don't talk to them unless absolutely required to be cordial. Nor am I a star performer/great at my work so asking anything something small like will just make me seem more "difficult" to work with.
Perhaps somebody has an idea on how I should go about this on my own?
