: Your condition sounds like one called cholinergic urticaria - hives when your body temperature changes, or even exercise induced urticaria (maybe even anaphylaxis). If it is the former, an antihistamine on a regular basis can be helpful, but you may need to try differnt ones. Perhaps your doctor would try Zyrtec - sometime you need a higher dose than the usual 1x/day. It may be worthwhile to see someone who could do an exercise test and actually see what your symptoms are. I would definitely pursue a good specialist for this one.
