I think I am experiencing cholinergic urticaria. I have all the common symptoms (red pin pricks, stinging/burning itches etc.) and experience the common triggers (exercise, stress, hot showers, spicy food etc.). But what I don’t get is I can never sweat, even in extremely hot temperatures or when I furiously exercise — the pin pricks just appear all over my body.
I tried going to the dermatologist and he told me to take Allegra and Benadryl. I read an article online that you can cure this by desensitizing the sweat glands, but when I brought it up the doctor didn’t even bat an eye, so I am not really sure it is the right treatment.
Is there any tips in helping me sweat?
