At age 18, Ben’s life took a dramatic turn when he developed cholinergic urticaria--a hives disorder that reacts to heat. Over the next decade, he struggled to find ways to manage the condition, often trying various remedies in the process.
Eventually, his hives became so severe that he couldn’t even do basic day-to-day tasks. Any activity he engaged in would often result in an unbearable stinging and itching sensation that engulfed his body.
He often struggled with depression and withdrew from most activities. However, by the grace of God, he eventually overcame his hives disorder.
Ben wrote this book to educate people about the disorder, to encourage and motivate current sufferers, and to share what’s helped him overcome his own hives. He also runs the website CholinergicUrticaria.net, a website dedicated to helping people suffering with chronic hives.
