Hi, of late I have been suffering from excessive itching whenever I am doing exercise. Is this any kind of skin disorder? What kind of skin disorder is this?
@anwesha This might be exercise-induced urticaria. This is a condition that produces hives and other allergic symptoms. The hives, or welts, are large, raised bumps on the skin. They can occur on any part of the body. They often are redder around the edge than in the middle. Hives also can look like red spots, blotches, or blisters.
Exercise-induced urticaria perhaps involves in mast cell activation and mast cell mediator release. The management strategy for patients who have exercise-induced syndromes with skin manifestations includes antihistamines, as a single agent or in combination with other agents. This may be helpful prophylactically . Avoidance of precipitating factors, modification of exercise, and use of a self-injectable epinephrine kit are recommended for patients with anaphylaxis.
