I think I had scabies last autumn. Well I’m pretty sure I did, as my son did and I had similar symptoms. I used masses of permethrin cream and some other stuff and think I over did it. Basically it’s a pesticide and I’m wondering whether it has done something to my skin and I now have cholinergic urticaria.
Through my 20′ s I had dermographism, and I am now in my 50′ s and wondering if this makes me susceptible? My symptoms are when I get warm, mainly in the evenings when I sit down, I itch and it’s the kind of itch you can’t quite get at.
Can be any part of my body but mostly forearms legs ankles feet waist, then a number of things could happen. I either go patchy red, get small round hives, get red scratch type marks or thin lines like wheals. Lasts an hour or so then gone, no signs left except possible bruising where I have scratched so much. Does this sound like cholinergic urticaria?
