Talking more sunlight hives

My hives started after I had my son in 93 . I'm sure its an allergy to the sun. Also the heat but mainly the sun I had a bad break out 1 winter I went outside. To clear away from rear tires snow was reflecting"the sun into my face but I didn't feel any pain when I finished outside I went inside into the heat and my face had turned one big swollen hive. I lived in California for a year and there is a dryer heat I had to walk my son to bus stop and put him on and taken him off while I was waiting I would break out in hives my face arm's neck legs and ankles when I was waiting for him. I would get him off of the bus raced home I had to use a hair brush to scratch. From my ankles to my face I was itching. Nothing worked "and again I went from one Extreme to another heat to cold. Now this went on for the entire year I still break out in hives they last from10min to 2hours I did not take any meds until 2001 now I am on 14 different meds they don' t effect my body while in the sun I do have mental disabilities about 10 are for, my disailities the rest of my meds"

Re: more sunlight hives

Yes, it is possible to get hives from heat or sun exposure. Avoiding it is the best thing you can do, try covering up with hat, clothing, etc.

When you can't avoid the sun, it might help to take antihistamines before you go out.

Have you ever had blood work or testing by an allergist, just to make sure it's sun allergy?
