We evaluate the charge diffusion constant of dense and hot hadronic matter based on the molecular dynamical method by using a hadronic collision generator which describes nuclear collisions at energies GeV/A and satisfies detailed balance at low temperatures ( MeV). For the hot and dense hadronic matter in the temperature range MeV and with baryon number density, nB, from to , the charge diffusion constant D gradually increases from 0.5 fm c to 2 fm c with temperature and is almost independent of baryon number density. Based on the obtained diffusion constant, we make simple discussions on the diffusion of charge fluctuation in ultrarelativistic nuclear collisions.
