I have had temp-induced hives for 8 yrs. I take 4 xyzal/day to control. Now I often break out in tiny clear water blisters when my skin gets hot. Why?

See dermatologist: Looks like that you may have cholinergic urticaria which is benign and associated with the cooling down period after a rise in core body temperature. The blister type of lesions are not urticaria and may be serious if not treated promptly. See a dermatologist ASAP. ...Read more
