I’m a 19 year old female, I’ve been experiencing hives and itchiness when I work out. I recently purchased and read the e-book on this website, and was struck by what it said – “The main distinguishing characteristic of this disorder is that people suffering with it experience symptoms when exposed to an active physical stimulus (exercise or active physical exertion), whereas people suffering with cholinergic urticaria can experience symptoms with active or passive heating.”
I ONLY get hives with physical exertion, not with any passive heating. Does this mean I don’t have cholinergic urticaria? If I have exercise-induced anaphylaxis, should I try the same treatments offered in the book (allergy elimination)?
