I have this condition chronic cold hives. I’ve had it for about two years now, and I get hives when I’m in cold weather. When the temperature is below 55 degrees F, or when I’m swimming in cold water, my skin breaks out in hives.
It really isn’t a major condition; however, it does bother me because I can never be outside in the cold. Even swimming in pools makes my skin break out.
Whenever I do get hives, they hardly itch if at all, and to control them, I take Zyrtec. I do not need it, so I can go without it if I have to, but I take it anyway to control my symptoms. I can eat cold foods, and drink cold drinks just fine and without any issue.
I have heard of cases of Chronic Hives going away eventually, within 5-10 years or so, and typically in someone’s 20’s.
So, I was just wondering weather my case of hives will go away eventually, for good? In case this matters, I’m 15 years old.
