hello. I have been getting hives when I get hot/sweat. If I'm stuck in a warm place for awhile, i will start to get ichy and then hives will show up usually around my bra area. It is worse when I exercise, I get hives all over my body. I don't have a hard time breathing though. This started sometime this winter.
I can't think of anything that I've changed. still use the same laundry soap, dish soap, shampoo, body wash, lotion, cleaning products. I haven't eaten anything new.
My dr says that I have heat induced hives and put me on 24 Zyrtec and 25mg of Benedryl. It worked for about a month and now I'm breaking out in hives again when I exercise.
I haven't had any allergy tests done yet.
A fitness friend of mine thinks that I might have a build up of toxins and when i sweat the toxins are being released. I haven't talked with my dr about that yet. Is there any truth to this? I do drink a good bit of regular soda.
