Dermograghism: See a dermatologist. Meanwhile you can take a daily antihistamine. The best one for this is Zyrtec. The generic, cetirizine, is just the same only cheaper. This is a physical urticaria, not allergy. When the skin is stroked, mast cells release histamine, causing itchy, elevated areas in the shape of the contact. Thus you can write messages on your skin. ...Read more

Histamine: This is relatively common. Certain immune cells that are located in your skin are releasing histamine in response to heat. The histamine causes the blood vessels in your skin to dilate and get a little leaky, causing the rash and itch. You could try taking a non-drowsy antihistamine at least an hour before exercising. Try to keep as cool as possible. Maybe spray yourself with water periodically. ...Read more
