Red blotches on lower body after showering, itchiness. Due to usage of hot water?

Hi, for the past month or so I have been getting red blotches on my skin on my lower body after showering, and they can be itchy too. I didnt think much of it but it keeps occuring. Its not the soap or shampoo I use because I have changed those. Could it be from hot water? Because I do tend to shower with hot water... let me know if I should see a dermatologist or if its nothing to worry about

Thanks for posting your query.
Your problem seems to be due to heat urticaria which occurs due to heat, hot water etc.
You may change to cold water and see if it disappears. Otherwise consult a dermatologist. As urticaria resolves in ten minutes you need not worry about it.
Good day
