    Exercise and hives

    For the past 2 days, I have broken out in hives on my face and chest about 3-4 hours after working out. I have had random hive breakouts in the past (some severe). I have been taking an allergy pill every day for about 4-5 years mainly for seasonal allergies.

    The only thing I can think of that I am doing differently is the fullCircuit program. This program is making me sweat a lot which lifting weights never really did. I have done all the internet searches and it does happen. Not sure if this what is happening to me but am wondering if anyone here has had any similar experiences.

    Thanks,

    Jake

    P.S. I just realized that I posted this in "The Hive"

    Hi JakeT

    When we access our fat reserves we also access whatever toxins are stored there. Along with the freed energy we also release those toxins into our bloodstream and, if there is just too much, our liver can't always cope. The breakouts are the side effect.

    It may pass on its own but if it gets worse, something might be lingering and your body is struggling to purge it. I had the same exact thing happen to me only a year ago. DAREBEE circuits often leave your drenched so I knew it wasn't caused by sweat. At a time I upped my running routine and I just happened to lose a lot of body fat. My hives appeared suddenly and they seemed to multiply in real time. They were all over my forehead, cheeks and chest. It just kept on getting worse and worse every day.

    What helped me was a water fast. I do those regularly so I instinctively knew it can help. Water fasts allow our bodies to change gears and fix whatever is broken. It was the worst fast of my life as 24 hours in I got really sick and I couldn't even hold water down for the next 24 hours. Day 3 I felt fine again, I broke my fast and I was able to hold food down. I was back to normal and my skin completely cleared up in the following couple of days. It was like it never happened.

      @neilarey,

      Thanks for that info. I don't think I could do a water fast but what I do need to do is drink more water. I drink 4-5 cups of coffee and 3-5 cans of diet pepsi a day. Usually only drinking water during and after a workout. I'm going to start by changing that and see what happens.

      Again, thanks for the info. It makes sense to me.
