Tiny, itchy bumps on body, get irritated when around hot things. Any clue?

I have tiny colorless itchy bumps on my body, mostly on my hands and feet but they spred up my arms and legs as well. I have had them for months now and they won t go away, I have had poison ivy and they seem to itch far worse. They also seem to be much more irritated when I myself get hot or am around hot things, such as standing next to a fire or when I first get in the shower they itch like crazy. Any clue what this could be?

hello..thanks for your query..
I feel that you have something knows as Chronic Urticaria.It is common condition with frequent exacerbations and remissions.In most cases,a direct cause is not identified.However a combination of correct anti histaminic tablets for a few months help in reducing the severity and frequency of these hives.Start application of a soothing anti pruritic calamine lotion to relieve the itch.In certain cases a few bood tests are advised to rule out ant internal causation of the same.Do not worry,although symptoms and treatment course of urticaria is prolonged,these do not pose any danger in most people!
