Look, I got heat hives three years ago. A friend pointed it out to me, and it was right after physical education. For about a month or so, I continued to get these red bumps on my arm, but they literally did nothing. As summer approached, these harmless bumps turned itchy and spread across my body, specifically in the arms and torso.
I used to never ever ever ever sweat. I could play basketball in 95 degree weather and not break a sweat whereas others were fully drenched. Now, I’m usually the sweatiest of the bunch.
I built a tolerance to the hives, but I feel like I have it extremely well when compared to some of ya’ll.
All I can say is exercise as much as you can, because now I’m breaking a sweat, and my hives have been reduced to appearing only during a hot, steamy shower.
My symptoms were always moderate, so take my case with a grain of salt. I didn’t let heat hives rob me of enjoying physical activity. It should be noted that I never took a single medication. I just want you guys to push and push because maybe some day it will become manageable.
Best of Luck guys!!
Note: I have once had a severe mood swing and hives broke out like wildfire among my body, and it was extremely painful.
Also try controlling your breathing when you feel the onset of the hives. I feel like it makes a difference.
