heres my story, I hope I can help people that struggled with this. I was so depressed that I couldn't figure out what was happening to me and there wasn't much information about the condition. But after spending hours every day for a long time researching this condition, experimenting with everything and anything I could, I finally found something that worked for me. First of, I'll explain what happened. I played sports my whole life but when I was 19, I was playing ice hockey and I started to get rashes during and after play. I wasn't sweating at all. It happened on a just a normal random day, I play hockey twice a week and had done for years. It came out of nowhere. A few months later, I moved to Australia and basically couldn't live because the weather was so warm  and I couldn't sweat. I was anxious and depressed because every time I was supposed to sweat I broke out in rashes. I spoke to numerous doctors and specialists, spent hours on forums, all of this to seek a solution. Finally I looked into a website that claimed to have a cure. I forget the name however, essentially the solution was a lifestyle change. I realised I ate junk my whole life, I also had a blood test and realised I was intolerant to wheat, milk and eggs even tho I had been consuming these intolerances my whole life but perhaps my gut had enough and was acting up. So I had an allergy free diet, ate organic, natural and healthy foods. I juiced daily. All this for an entire year, I gradually saw improvement over the year and finally I was cured. No more rashes. I couldn't believe it, I could finally live without anxiety. I'm completely normal now and I'm so happy. I'm sorry I can't find the name of this website but it's out there. But I would suggest to everyone that's suffering to have a blood test, see if your intolerant to anything, look at your diet, figure out if your eating crap. Lead a healthy lifestyle, juice daily, eat clean and give it time, give your gut a rest, time to reset it self, the gut can do this. I hope you all find this helpful, it worked for me. I wish you all the best, I too once was on these forums looking for answers and can now say I'm cured.

    That is wonderful Ethan!  Thank you for sharing.  I too am hive free and have been for over a year however I had to be on Cyclosporine and Prednisone for a long time with a very slow taper that took over a year.  I had severe hives and did not have quality of life with doctors that didn't know how to treat me....finally found a doctor that with her help and the meds I was able to experience a normal life without suffering......hive free!!  I only pray I have not done damage to my body with the medications.  I have been also suffering from many UTI's and have had to take CIPRO many times.  All that being said I have also been slowly changing diet like you and eating Organic foods as much as possible......grassfed meats when I can......taking probiotics.....L-Glutamine.....and have started to take Quercetin...all good for Urticaria. I have not done the juicing yet.  Do you juice vegetables and fruit?  What is your recipe?  I do think Urticaria is caused by our gut and stresses in life.

    thank you so much for sharing Ethan!  I wish you the best!

      That's great Wendy, really glad to hear your not suffering anymore. Not sure what cyclosporine or prednisone is but at least it may have helped you. I do agree that a lifestyle change is what solved it for me. I took a lot of vitamin supplements and probiotics, I tried antibiotics but I stayed away from my intolerances completely which I think was key. I juiced with anything and everything, mixed it up all the time, fruit and vegetables. Mainly vegetables tho like kale, spinach, carrot, beetroot, ginger, just try mix it up and drink the best stuff you can. I do agree about the gut and stress too, it's so important to be healthy and happy. I wish you all the best going forward, really happy you figured it all out smile

      Hi Kittygan;  I am not an unhealthy eater, although I do love my sugar.  I have decided to eliminate gluten just to see if it has any affect at all on my hives.  I do feel like I am seeing an improvement.  I plan to continue this new way of eating and I will go to the health food store today and purchase L-Glutamine and Quercetin, two supplements that I continue to read about other people taking that have helped.  God bless!
