BTS‘s V shared something about himself that many fans have been unaware of for the last seven years.
V responded to an ARMY‘s BTS Weverse post by revealing a chronic medical condition that many have never heard of: cholinergic urticaria.
No, I have a cholinergic allergy. I’m itchy, itchy.
Cholinergic urticaria is an itchy skin rash that is triggered by a rise in body temperature. When the afflicted person gets too warm, their skin breaks out in hives.
Reactions range from mild itchiness to more severe symptoms such as faintness, difficulty breathing, and pain. Reactions can be triggered by any activity, clothing item, or setting that causes the body’s temperature to rise higher than what the body can tolerate, including stress.
Ever since V revealed his condition, many fans feel that they understand some of V’s past decisions more, such as his clothing choices.
So taehyung has cholinergic urticaria so that's explain why he doesn't wears tight clothes and i always noticed him drinking lots of water in stages/concerts after every performance bcoz heat rises in body after that now i understood ohh my poor baby i want to take his every pain

Some fans have also pointed out moments where V’s members may have helped him out because of his condition.
Jungkook knows that Taehyung has Cholenergic urticaria so He traded his card to Taehyung even if at first Jungkook said that he didn’t want to go to sauna roomㅠㅠㅠㅠ(both of them opened it first and knew what team they would go)
