In brief: Avoid heat
The above answer may seem flippant but this is exactly what you can do to avoid it.
Many people however have found that taking an antihistamine 1-2 hrs prior to exposure to heat may keep it under control.

In brief: Can be tough
Cholinergic urticaria is a type of hives brought on by heat inducing stimuli.
Meaning, it causes small 2-3 mm hive-like bumps symmetrically on the body after something is done to increase the body's core temperature. Exercise, hot weather, spicy foods, and alcohol can all bring on an episode. See an allergist to help find an appropriate way to manage this challenging diagnosis. Options exist.
