I am a librarian and not a medical doctor.  I am not educated in any field
of medicine, but rather in information science so my comments are from one
layman to another. You certainly should get medical help for this as it
seems this is a chronic condition.  Here are links to search results from
Google that may help provide you with some useful information as there are
other possible causes such as vitamin deficiency and overheating itself
that may cause or contribute to this condition.  You might want to split
the exercise sessions up and have one shorter one in the morning and one
in the evening. It also could be that so much cooling is harmful to your
body and that a cold drink and drying off might be better. A sports
medicine physician would perhaps be a good person to consult with as in
India they must deal with lots of overheated athletes who need cooling
after exercise.  In the United States we have had athletes die from
becoming over heated for too long a period of time.  Here are the promised

Thanks for the kind words to me in your post and I hope content in this
post proves of some help.  I remember hearing this bit of wisdom about
colds sometime ago.  "What do you do for your cold."  "I sneeze when it
wants me too."  I hope you find a way to reduce the number of colds you
have and the cause may or may not be your exercise and cooling regimen.
Since colds may open the door to other and perhaps more serious illnesses,
it would be very wise to get professional medical assistance with this
