How are you? What other symptoms present? This could be due to allergic reaction, irritation or from physical urticaria such as cholinergic urticaria or heat bumps. Cholinergic urticaria rash occurs when a rise in core body temperature resulting in sweating. Other common triggers include: exercise, hot baths/showers, emotional stress, and even stress. The rash may present with Itching, burning, tingling, warm sensation preceding the onset of numerous small weals with surrounding bright red flares. The rash is often very itchy and may appear anywhere on the body but is more prominent on the upper trunk and arms. Systemic symptoms such as headaches, salivation, palpitations, fainting, shortness of breath, wheezing, abdominal cramps and diarrhea may also be observed. Avoiding the trigger and antihistamine medications may help. However, if it persists, it is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
