Burning prickly sensation in cheeks, palms of hands, feels like sunburn. Taking axorid for arthritis. Causes?

My head, face, neck become very hot and prickly and blotchy. My cheeks burn and now the palms of my hands also have started. It feels like sunburn . This began in November last year but has increasingly become more frequent during the day. The only medication I take is Axorid ( ketoprofen and omeprazole ) for arthritis which I have taken for the past two years.
