Hi. This is an update on my previous post (MY CU story). I got this condition when I moved from Africa to Connecticut, USA.
I won’t consider mine as very severe, because I hardly get the visible hives – just the intense itching and burning sensations all over my body. This can be very frustrating and annoying. I know y’all going through this can relate. May God help us.
Like I said, I got this thing when I moved to the US from Africa. At first, I didn’t think much of it because I thought my body was just trying to adjust to the new environment, and it wasn’t so intense too. But as time went on, I continued to get this itching attacks, which became more severe, intense and frequent, so I started to search the net. Luckily for me, I found this website.Thank you Ben.
I saw some articles about sweat therapy, and I was willing to try it out. I bought a portable steam sauna (costs about 75-150 dollars) to help me sweat, and before I used it, I was pretty much nervous because I didn’t know what to expect. But to my surprise, it worked, and when I used it, sweat was pouring out of me like I played sports for hours. NOTE: (Sweat therapy is not safe for everyone and may not work for everyone ).
So its been a month since I started using the sauna, and it has changed my life, though my cholinergic urticaria is not gone. I have to sweat every 2-3 days. I’m thinking of getting a gym membership because of the possible side effects of using a sauna frequently.
I surely recommend the sweat therapy and also eat good. Make it a habit to make your own food and stop buying junk food. Drink plenty of water, and don’t forget to pray. Prayer works wonders! You can reach me on instagram (@wale_tks) if you have anything to say.
