Exercise urticaria, sometimes mistaken as exercise allergy ... is a form of urticaria that happens during exercise. It is characterized by itching, swelling or hives on the legs, arms, torso or neck during or after exercise. Cholinergic urticaria is brought on by a physical stimulus. Although the physical stimulus might be considered to be sweat, the actual precipitating cause is increased body temperature.
The reaction does not occur with other forms of exercise, such as long or strenuous bicycle rides, skiing all day, etc. This only occurs after anaerobic weight-bearing exercises
Rarely, patients with cholinergic urticaria can have more severe reactions such as anaphylaxis so should probably not exercise alone.

The reaction typically begins within 24 hours of exposure and peaks at 48–72 hours after the exposure.
