Hello there, I’ll try and make this short. I’ve only recently been diagnosed with cholinergic urticaria, but believe I’ve had it majority of my life, believing my symptoms where involved with my eczema diagnosis. Before figuring out it was CU, I went through many different doctors and tried many different things: allergy testing (which was very informative) as well as multiple medications, sweat therapy, allergy shots, even being suggested to move to more humid (and colder) climates.
I lived in Wyoming my whole life and have been in Phoenix for 6 years, so I’ve tried all that. Sweat therapy is awful for me. It seems like a go-to for many here on this page. I recently was put on a medication called dupixent. Has anyone had experience with it? Just curious if I’ll be able to get back into an active lifestyle again after it kicks in (3-4 months).
Not only do I have eczema and cholinergic urticaria, but I also have an allergy to the salt that is in my sweat and tears. Is there anyone who is also experiencing with this? This website has been great and very informative, but still looking for more as to how to manage all three and have a “normal” life.
Any information would be great. Thanks for looking.
