Red rash on face, chest and back. Hot to the touch. What could it be?

My boyfriend keeps breaking out in this red rash . It used to only affect his face, chest, and back. Now it is all over his body. It doesn t bother him at all, no itch or burn . He doesn t even know it is there until I mention it. I noticed it at the beginning he would break out to drinking a Budweiser instead of light beer or when the dog got in his face. It is getting more drastic now thought, still doesn t bother him. It is steaming hot to the touch. It usually goes away after a shower, nap, or just relaxing after taking an allergy pill. What could this crazy rash be. I ve had hives but this is different. It looks similar but in different places and it is flat to the skin, no bumps of anykind.

Your boy friend suffering from allergy which is menifesting in skin lesions called urticaria. He may be atopic ie prone to develop allergies to various environmental antigens. He should avoid all known allergens as much as possible. He may take an anti histaminic, a monte leukast and if lesions are really bad- a short course of steroids. He may go in for testing his IgE levels and if required, shots of anti IgE antibodies.
