I had cholinergic urticaria for more than 2 years now and nothing worked for me except for the sauna treatment. I have a portable sauna in my apartment I use it everyday. I wake up turn the sauna on take a shower then go inside the sauna.
However, the last couple of days I didn’t take a shower before I entered the sauna. I felt that the sauna was much hotter and I sweated a lot more than before. It’s been about 12 hours since I used the sauna and I still was able to sweat from my hands and head now without feeling itchy. (I still felt that I have CU but I didn’t feel itchy) I’m sure all of you CU sufferers will understand.
So basically if you’re using the sauna treatment like I am, try not to take a shower before entering the sauna. To be honest I feel that I don’t want to shower at all because when I take a shower CU will be more likely to get to me. I take a shower before I sleep though and feel a little itchy when I sleep. But overall your day should be a lot better if use the treatment like I do.
