Hi Anonymous,

It sounds like you may have Golfer's Vasculitis.

Golfer's vasculitis is a form of vasculitis resulting in a purpuric rash (bleeding from underlying tissues). It is often experienced in the lower legs caused by excessive exercise in hotter temperatures. It is more common among older people.

It is called 'Golfer's' due to the large amount of walking done in golf, as well as it being a sport more popular among older people, resulting in greater incidence of the condition.

Unfortunately there isn't much known about Golfer's Rash other than there is no other health related condition linked to it and that it goes away on its own within a few days. 

Another heat rash is known as Cholinergic Urticaria-- you can read more on Urticaria, here: http://www.empowher.com/media/reference/urticaria

For a diagnosis, please see your doctor.
