I have had chronic hives for the past 2 years. My triggers include getting warm, working out, tight clothing, hot showers, drinking alcohol, etc. They are the worst the day after I drink alcohol. My body is often covered head to toe. They are extremely hot to the touch and very itchy. I have to avoid getting warm throughout the day because if I do, I will have hives the rest of the day. I can't wear closed-toed shoes at all. If I wear boots, flats, or tennis shoes my feet break out in hives and they often spread to the rest of my body. Sometimes of course, I get them for no apparent reason. I haven't had a day without them in two years. If anyone else has experienced chronic hives like this I would love to hear from you.
