How do I prevent cholinergic uorticaria?

ANSWER

Stop or slow down your workouts if you break out in hives. If some types of exercise make you break out more often, try other activities instead.

Cool your hot skin to prevent or ease hives:

  • Try a cool shower, press a cloth soaked in cool water to your skin, or stand in front of a fan.
  • Wear loose clothes.
  • Keep your home and bedroom at a cool temperature.
  • If stress causes your hives, try to avoid situations that upset you. Find ways to calm down and manage it.
