My name is Emily, and I’ve been suffering from hives for about a year and a half. I have both cholinergic urticaria and cold urticaria. My hives seemingly disappeared over the summer but for an unknown reason have begun to resurface at a greater intensity than before.
Lately my cold hives have been a lot worse than my heat hives and my allergist prescribed an Epi-Pen incase I go into shock from the cold (thankfully I haven’t had to use it). It isn’t even that cold right now where I live but recently I’ve had some of the worst cold hives in my life which makes me very scared as to what the winter will bring.
I haven’t seen many people on this forum discuss cold-induced hives, and I was just wondering if anyone else can relate to this or if anyone has any tips or tricks on how to get through the coldest months of the year.
