97615 tn?1212682189 Symptoms follow any stimulus to sweat such as exercise (sometimes called exercise-induced urticaria), heat from the sun (which could also indicate solar urticaria), saunas, hot showers (reaction to water can also indicate water urticaria), spicy foods which may cause an increase in body temperature or even stress due to blushing or anger. Some people only have symptoms during the winter months where their body temperature rises when it is unacclimatized to heat.
530191 tn?1214166411 Looking to make friends with others who have autoimmune urticaria and share stories, symptoms, food for thought, etc. Anyone game?
97615 tn?1212682189 I have noticed in trying to pinpoint my urticaria and exercise induced anaphylaxis that it is closely related to my asthma. On days where my breathing is clear and good I have no urticaria whatsoever. On days where my breathing is labored I get it full force especially on my chest. Is anyone familiar w/ this and could is be significant to any other disease???
Avatar n tn Many a times an allergy starts in reaction to heat or cold. What you have is probably cholinergic urticaria. Exercise, hot baths, tight clothes, spicy food, emotional stress and fever can all cause this. Once this is identified, avoiding the reason can take care of the problem. Sometimes rapid cooling of the body can prevent an attack. Antihistamines also help. However you appear to have many allergies.
Avatar f tn Hello, You seem to be having exercise induced urticaria. Most symptoms can be controlled by taking antihistaminics like benadryl or Claritin or zyrtec. Slow down or stop your exercise as soon as symptoms start. You should always exercise with a partner who knows about your condition. In some people, eating certain foods before exercise may make allergic symptoms more likely to occur. Keep track of what you eat before exercising for a few weeks.
Avatar f tn I did a quick google, because I had never heard of this before, and it turns out that a lot of people have this problem. It's called exercise-induced itching, exercise-induced hives, or exercise-induced urticaria. If you look up any of those terms, you will find a lot more information. When your blood vessels dilate during exercise, histamine is released from the cells, and that's what causes the symptoms -- exactly like an allergic reaction.
97615 tn?1212682189 i also get itching sometimes w/ no rash that travels from my feet up to the top of my head and i become so itchy i have to stop running (it happens when i am running) and itch myself. i do not have a rash, i just itch. i have been to an allergist and immunologist. i have had liver tests and allergy tests and i have been tested for rheumatoid arthritis. i take zyrtec which keeps it under control most of the time. and by under control i mean i still get the rash just not as bad.
Avatar n tn I have seasonal allegies to begin with, but I've noticed lately that when I do exercise outside, particularly running and cycling, that I develop a rash (or it could be hives) on my arms and sometimes on my legs. This rash is blotchy red and it stings and itches. It was bad this morning when I went cycling, and I was also suffering from hayfever. When I stop the exercise it goes away immediately. I also wore sunblock, though I don't think that is the cause.
Avatar n tn Hi, Water urticaria, also known as aquagenic urticaria and aquagenous urticaria, is an extremely rare form of physical urticaria. It is sometimes described as an allergy. In affected persons, water on the skin causes hives to appear within 15 minutes and last for up to two hours. Water contact can cause aquagenic urticaria, presumably due to chlorine or some other trace chemical in the water, although distilled water has been known to cause this reaction.

Avatar f tn My son experiences big white blotches on his face during heavy exercise such as running in soccer, gym class etc. After discontinuing exercise the blotches gradually disappear. It is quite pronounced. He also tells us he gets dizzy and nauseous.
Avatar n tn I don't feel stressed and why does it come on when I exercise or do heavy work? Isn't exercise supposed to relieve stress? I don't know if I am making it worse by plowing through or if that is the best thing to do.
Avatar n tn I eat a normal diet, drink lots of water, and I try not to consume too many snack foods or greasy foods. I get regular exercise and about 6-8 hours of sleep nightly I have gone to many doctors about this problem and none of them seem to be able to diagnose me. They tell me that they have seen patients that have had extreme itching but that none of those cases have been similar to mine where the itching is exclusively in my head, neck, shoulders, and upper back.
Avatar m tn Rash/itch like symptoms appear at night or after a work out/ running. Rash also appears over area that i put pressure on skin while cleaning in the shower, ie. chest, thigh, arms. It disappears after a couple of hours. Or if I used hydrocortisone cream or betamethasone cream. I also have eczema. Is it another form of it like urticaria? I think it might have come from either the flumist vaccine shot or the combination of drugs i took. Doxycycline for when i travel abroad to malaria zone.
Avatar n tn The cause of chronic urticaria is often more difficult to identify. Most cases are called chronic idiopathic urticaria, which means they're caused by the body's unexplainable development of antibodies to itself (auto-antibodies). Chronic urticaria is often accompanied by coexistent physical urticaria, triggered by environmental exposure to heat, cold, sunlight, vibration, pressure on the skin or even exercise. So exact cause of hives is difficult to determine.
Avatar m tn Hi, your history is suggestive of Exercise-induced urticaria. This can be induced whenever person exercises. Hence it is very important to rule out any of these exposures recently before the appearance of the whelps. The triggering factor should be identified and further exposure should be avoided. You may need to give up the gym. Otherwise prophylactic antihistamine (before exercise) against prescription may help.
Avatar n tn I have done no exercise for two years. Yesterday and the day beforei started an intense boot camp-jump rope, running, squats, steps. Needless to say I am sore--especially my thighs. My calves are not particulary sore but I now find my right leg has a string of greenish bruises from the ankle bone, along the inner calf to the back of the knee. Any ideas what this might be from?
Avatar n tn Hello, What your son seems to be having is chronic hives or chronic urticaria. Hives (medically known as urticaria) are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in varying shapes and sizes. They have a tendency to change size rapidly and to move around, disappearing in one place and reappearing in other places, often in a matter of hours. Chronic urticaria is defined as urticaria that persists for longer than 6 weeks.
1154571 tn?1262218407 As the one thing I could think of is cholinergic urticaria, or hives activated by sweating and exercise among a few other things. its symptoms include Itching, burning, tingling, warm sensation preceding the onset of numerous small weals with surrounding bright red flares, with the rash often being very itchy. Also, have you ever noticed this same sort of itch after eating spicy food or taking a hot shower/bath? As those also could activate cholinergic urticaria.

947366 tn?1245812821 I also have bone and joint pains as well as a stiff neck in the mornings. I have already spent over 1500$ on tests and am running out of money, I have no health insurance. My dermatologist recommended a skin biopsy. Do I need to get it? I read that a steroid called prednisone is prescribed for treatment, can I get it over the counter?
700223 tn?1318169294 The following 10 tips are meant as a guide to the pursuit of that goal. 1. Consult your physician before starting any exercise or sports program. A proper medical evaluation can spot potential problems and correct weaknesses that may be worsened by starting a sports program. Previous injuries can result in chronic problems if they have not been properly rehabilitated. Ideally, a pre-season physical should take place within 6 weeks of the start of the season. 2.
Avatar m tn Now my skin would itch and my face arms chest and back even legs at times would breakout from me running/warming up or exposure to hot water/hot temp. Seems like all i can drink is water to reduce the itchyness that happens when i warm up or take a hot shower. ive tried claritin benedryl all kinds of hestimine blocking medicine and it seems like nothing works. been to all types of doctors and no clue of what this is called or what can stop it. any ideas or solutions?
97615 tn?1212682189 The doctor said that it's urticaria and that I've got to take antihistamines before I exercise or go for a long walk. The thing is that I can't anticipate it! It can also happen at times when I'm walking for only 5 minutes on my way to work. and again, nothing for a few weeks. I've got to find something I can take instantly when I feel it coming...
Avatar f tn Hi, Cholinergic urticaria is a subcategory of physical urticaria (aka hives) that is a skin rash brought on by a hypersensitive reaction to body heat. Symptoms follow any stimulus to sweat such as exercise , heat from the sun, saunas, hot showers , spicy foods which may cause an increase in body temperature or even stress due to blushing or anger. Some people only have symptoms during the winter months where their body temperature rises when it is unacclimatized to heat.
Avatar f tn I was told when I was younger, and when I was a runner, that I have exercise-induced hyperventilation. I played tennis in college (2008), but I tried running recently (March 2013) and breathing was much more difficult than it used to be. I am in good shape, due to a healthy diet and occasional yoga and I am slim, not overweight.
790967 tn?1432768410 about 9 years ago i was running around my house and both my eyes swelled shut it had never done it before but for some reason now every time i run even from my house to my driveway it'll swell it starts with a small lump under my eye them my nose seems to clog up and feel very stuffed and not a minute after i get the small bump both my eyes swell and stay swollen for two days no longer i dont know whats causing it, ive been to the allergist they first told me it was a milk allergy but milk doesn
Avatar f tn I thought of exercise induced urticaria. Literally meaning itching due to exercise. They recommed keeping the room cooler where you exercise, taking antihistamines, and stopping for a rest when you start to break a sweat. and then there's the worse case scenerio-it's the internet they post it ALL, anaphylactic shock. Some people carry an epi pen for this. I guess it can happen anywhere that your temp rises-hot tubs, etc. I'd let your dr know and i wish you luck with it.
Avatar m tn Take each day at a time and dont overdo things with running. I find if I do too much exercise i suffer the next few days.
Avatar m tn What you have is probably cholinergic urticaria. Exercise, hot baths, tight clothes, spicy food, emotional stress and fever can all cause this. Once this is identified, avoiding the reason can take care of the problem. Eye strain as in overuse of computers can aggravate it further. Sometimes rapid cooling of the eyes by applying a cold compress or cold tea bags can prevent an attack. Antihistamines also help. Hope this helps. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
