What causes pin prick sensations on legs and arms?

I have tiny pinprick sensations on my legs and arms that seem to happen in the summer when out in the heat. Once it starts the first time it s hot, every time I go out, even for just a couple of minutes, it returns. It last for hours even after I m inside with the AC on and have cooled down. What causes it and how can I prevent and treat it? Donna
