Brief Answer: Unusual symptoms, need consultation. Detailed Answer: Hello Mr. XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. Your symptoms are not very classical of any particular disease, it would help me get a better idea if could share some more details about your problem so that I can help you further. That said, considering your symptoms, I can think of two conditions that can cause something like this, one is exercise induced allergy and the other possibility is polycythemia rubra. Polycythemia means excess number of red blood cells(RBCs). To help you further, please answer these questions. 1. Since how long is this happening? When did you first notice this? 2. Do you smoke? 3. Does this happen when take bath? 4. Does this happen when you play any game? 5. Does this happen in any particular place, like your house, or your work place? 6. Do you get difficulty in breathing when you get this itching? 7. What do you mean by "Whenever i feel hot or my body become bit hot and tired " ? When does your body become hot and tired? Please write back with answers so that I can assist you further. Awaiting your response. Regards.

Brief Answer: Exercise induced allergic reaction. Detailed Answer: Hello Mr. XXXXXXX Thanks for answering the questions. Now it is clear to me that you are suffering from a condition called as exercise induced allergic reaction. I suggest you to kindly consult an immunologist or an internal medicine MD, some blood tests need to be done to confirm the diagnosis, so it is highly recommended to consult an immunologist. The treatment can be started once you consult the doctor. Hope this answers your query, please feel free to write back if you have any doubts. Regards.

Brief Answer: Allergy due to physical activity. Detailed Answer: Hello Mr. XXXXXXX As I said earlier, your problem seems to be due to physical activity, that means you have allergy to exercise, that is why this is happening. Since it is due to exercise/physical activity foods have no correlation, you can eat all foods. I am not aware of any clinic nearby to your place, you can visit any of the big hospitals like Safdarjung, Lady Harding, Gangaram, Fortis, XXXXXXX you should see a MD physician or an Immunologist. Hope this will make things clear. Regards.
