Health Tip: When Exercise Causes Hives

(HealthDay News) -- When some people exercise, they may break out in raised, itchy bumps and have other allergy symptoms during or just after activity. "Exercise-induced urticaria" is the medical term for this outbreak of hives.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says warning signs of the condition may include:

  • Itchy, bumpy skin that becomes flushed or red.
  • A feeling of choking or having difficulty breathing.
  • Stomach cramps.
  • Headache.
  • Swelling affecting the hands, face or tongue.
