most propably this is a case of cholinergic urticaria, it usually
occurs on stimulation of sweating, whether induced by a rise in core temperature, emotion or gustatory stimuli. Ketotifen, which also has mast-cell stabilizing properties, may be more helpful in some patients than ordinary antihistamines.

but in my personal experience with imilar cases i found the intake of loratadine and pseudoephedrine sulfate tablet (Clarinase - Shering corp.) at least once daily is the most effective although this is prescribed for the allergic nasal conditions,
Also keep on sport excercise will cause a gradual improvement of your condition, however it should be noticed that it the condition will increase in the first few days but will subside gradually.
