Greetings. Is this a new symptom o feature that you have noticed or have you always suffered from this? Your symptoms are suggestive of something called exercise induced urticaria / cholinergic urticaria. Some people sweat and develop itching and wheals during a cholinergic response of the body. You should see a qualified dermatologist near you and get evaluated for the same. You may require symptomatic treatment with anti histamines.

Thanks for the query. If you are getting itching involving most of the body especially with a rash (hives) on regular basis on exertion then it is most like to be a form of allergic skin condition called " Cholinergic urticaria". This condition is caused by sweating. Common triggers include running/ jogging, hot bath, fever, emotional stress.
Next Steps
Taking antihistamines like " Cetirizine" is very useful in preventing the attack. Also rapid cooling after exertion is helpful.
Health Tips
Even though there is no treatment modality to cure this condition but most patient experience slow resolution over several years.
