When I can warm or hot or when I exercise, I get stings (electrical needle like) all over my body, primarily head and back. I hope there is a cure for this, I think it might be heat rash? But there is no rash, just pain.
It is good that you are exercising. What you described is likely due to onset of sweating and the sweat gland trying to put out water quickly. Try a 10 minute period of warming up before progressing to hard or vigorous exercise.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Heat: Heat rash (miliaria rubra) occurs when your sweat glands become blocked and sweat is trapped under the skin. This can cause a red rash that can either look like little blisters or larger red lumps. It can be itchy or "prickly" which is why many people refer to it as prickly heat. Even though it can be annoying, the good news is that it usually resolves on its own. You can help by preventing sweating such as staying in a cool environment, wear lightweight clothing of breathable material (like cotton), and limiting physical activity in the heat. Calamine lotion can help with the itch. Good luck! ...Read more
