Hives from exercise

  1. Hives from exercise


    Almost a year ago, I began breaking out into hives, but just on my hands and feet. Several months later during exercise, I started breaking out over most of my legs and torso. I also experienced some asthma at the same time. According to my homework, my symptoms indicate I have exercise-induced urticaria. Spoke to three doctors (general, derm, allergy) and the best solution I could get was to use allergy medicines for the time being, and maybe it'll just disappear on it's own.

    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this.


  2. Interesting.

    I remember my preceptor mentioning something like this when I was getting my EMS cert.
    Your body is releasing histamines from the stressed placed on it by weight training. Good luck, man.

    Any tips for it or just ride it out?

    Hives when working out

  5. I have heard of this, but I have not had it myself. There could be something that you are allergic too though.

  6. I've never had this but I had bad allergies as a kid and still do have ****ty allergies and used to break out in hives, most you can do is take some benadryl [non-drowsy] and keep up the lifting. Plus I have sports-related asthma and I don't let that decide anything for me.

  7. Used to happen to me when I played sports, never had a problem with it lifting weights. According to the Dr I have a high histamine level, and he prescribed me claritin. Not sure if it was stronger than the OTC claritin, but I'm guessing any OTC anti-histamine will do.
