I’m writing this post with great excitement and happiness. I used to have a very serious hives. They started when I relocated to Cyprus from Africa two years ago. Most of my friends here have the same symptoms too.
So, I assumed the cause is probably the change of water or the change of food. My symptoms are listed below:
- The itch starts anytime I’m exposed to sun.
- When I’m doing something strenuous.
- When I’m excited
- When I’m in a hot environment.
I would have these tiny spots on my arms when the the itch started getting too serious, but it goes away almost immediately when I apply a cold compress. The only solution I found then was applying a cold compress anytime I had the hives.
My life had been so miserable, and I started living a lazy life.
The itch started around fall 2013. I was worried and concerned about how I would survive in summer 2014. But a miracle happened in the summer: the hives went away, and I noticed I sweated so so much.
Note: I failed to notice that I wasn’t able to sweat before that summer, until a friend who has the same symptoms told me he doesn’t sweat. So I figured out immediately that I was unable to sweat too until last summer. To cut the long story short, the hives started again after summer, and this time I realized I was unable to sweat.
I was a bit excited because I now know where the problem is coming from. I knew if I was able to sweat, then the hives would go away. I started looking online on how to force my body to sweat. I couldn’t get enough information. The only information that has helped me was the article I read here about sauna.
Lots of people gave several testimonies about how it worked for them. I was kinda scared though, because I knew it would be a very difficult task to make my body to sweat with the use of sauna. Moreover, I don’t even have one.
Now, I’m gonna explain to you how it worked for me. I mentioned earlier that I didn’t have a sauna. The question is what is the point of using a sauna? Well, to heat your body and also force it to sweat. Since I couldn’t get one, my mind went straight to the electric heater I was using during winter. Its like 90 cm tall and 45 cm wide.
“If a sauna would heat my body and force me to sweat, then an ordinary heater should do the same thing,” I thought.
Three days ago I stopped taking yoghurt and milk, but I used to take them so so much (I took milk today though…smiles). That same day, I brought out the heater. Then I drank 2-3 glasses of hot water, took off my clothes (only had a boxers on). Then I placed the heater very close to me.
I wasn’t expecting to sweat immediately. I thought I would have to do it several days before I would finally sweat, because I thought when the hives start I won’t be able to hold on the heat. Well, I was wrong. I sat on the floor, then I placed the heater right in front of me. The itch wouldn’t come immediately.
So I tried some pushups…then here comes the itch. At this point, I was nervous.
Fortunately for me, the itch reduced after 2-3minutes. Then I noticed my armpits were a bit wet, and my face was getting cold and wet too. My feet were getting a bit sweaty too, then my stomach. The sweat wasn’t much at all, but I was so happy it was coming out a bit. I continued the push ups to see if the hives (or more itch) would come, and I also wanted to sweat more. The hives never came.
Do you want to know how I endured with the 2 minutes itch. It’s very easy. Like I said earlier, you have to be naked so u can be able to scratch properly and so that you can know when u sweating. You also have to be extremely fast when scratching. So it’s better to sit on the floor so your hand can reach every part of your body at a very fast pace within a very short time.
My job is a stressful one, and the next day, I didn’t do much at work. The weather was cold, so I was unable to sweat. I also didn’t try the heating method when I got home, for I was being lazy. Well, it was sunny yesterday and I had to work in the sun. My body started getting itchy.
I was worried because my boss was right in front of me. So I was enduring and also using style to scratch. The itch wasn’t much at all unlike before. Moreover, the hives never came, and I started sweating afterward. The itch stopped almost immediately, same as today. I was getting a bit itchy while working, but when the sweat came out, the itch stopped.
Summer is almost here, and I’m also thinking of registering in a gym so that I can sweat everyday. I’m so sure the little itch that I still have when I want to sweat is completely gonna go in the next few days.
I don’t come here often, and I don’t think I will ever visit this site again, because I believe I got what I wanted from it. I’m not 100 percent sure this will work for you–I’m just sharing my testimony.
But if u ever have any question for me. You can send me a message on Facebook. My username is KAKOWAPPY.
Thanks to Everyone,
