I’m 21, male, and have been living with heat-induced urticaria since I was 16. Puberty struck, and I’d find myself walking to class and getting itchy/welts all over my arms and legs, usually hives on my forearms mostly.
I’ve developed a really gigantic insecurity about it, and I practically want to cry even discussing it right now. I used to go to the gym easily when I was 15-16 and didn’t have any problems, but it suddenly began.
I don’t know about sweat therapy, and I’m going to Brisbane this Winter (their summer), and I’m really worried. My health isn’t good, and I’ve developed a gigantic insecurity over my weight/inability to stay consistent with the gym due to these hives.
I know it’s all diet, but the gym was always the lynch pin for me. I don’t know what to do.
