Hello all fellow cholinergic urticaria sufferers, and happy new year to all. I have been diagnosed with cholinergic urticaria by two dermatologists, but one problem I have out of many (which may or may not be part of my CU) is confusing me. My face and neck get hit the hardest with hundreds of hives at times.
Does anyone have the feeling that their skin is being shredded, that they’re losing layers of their skin? It feels horrible and it’s distressing. I can’t use cream on my skin because it makes it worse, but my skin is so dry and needs something. Washing my skin can also aggravate the problem.
I get prickling/stinging sensations too, and it gets very itchy. I have other issues also but would really appreciate any advice on this issue. I would like to say the book is very useful and a must for all sufferers. I’m on Fexofenadine up to 4 X daily and Ranitidine X twice daily.
