Rashes all over body, occur while sweating, red spots, ear swelling, hot to touch. Causes?

Hi, I sometimes get a rash all over my body. It only happens when I do sport and sweat, but it does not happen every time. It starts with small red dots that develop into big areas of hardening leather-like skin. My ears swell very big. If I dont sit down, I faint, as my skin is extremely hot. After 2 hours I get very cold , tired and hungry. The skin goes back to normal after ca. 5 hours. Do you have any clue what this could be?

hello .thanks for your query..
I feel that you have something knows as 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.of prednisone you are taking.In some cases a higher dose and a gradually tapering therapy is required.Do not worry,although symptoms and treatment course of urticaria is prolonged,these do not pose any danger in most people!
you should visit a physician to evaluate the systemic symptoms you have as well.
hope this helps!take care...
