Hi James
I too get hives outbreaks after intense meditation...

...Zinc.
Thanks for the suggestion Andrea, I'll try it if it happens again. How much Zinc do you take for it, and how often?

Since I wrote that post in 2012 I've really just avoided pushing myself that hard on retreat, although on some retreats I have felt it coming on, though just subtly, not as a horrible whole-body insanely itchy red blotchy rash.
I learned to be more gentle with my meditation practise I think.
