hives in cold weather

I live in West Africa. I am very actively involved in sports. Every year around this time the temperature drops into the 60's. occasionally when I play sports outside and sweat in the cold weather I break out in hives. After taking benedryl and shower they subside. This year I was advise by a nurse to treat with Albendazole to treat for worms. Is there anything else this could be? What can I do to prevent it from reoccurring?
