Hello, everyone! Hope you are all doing fine.
First of all, I want to thank Ben and all the members for sharing with us this amount of information! I am 22 years old male and have been dealing with cholinergic urticaria and anxiety for two years. This is making me feel down, especially, that sports work best for my anxiety!
My cholinergic urticaria seems to happen during winters only. Whenever I walk under the sun, exercise or take a hot shower hives would come. I noticed the inability to sweat. My skin would have these tiny points like goose bumps just before breaking out in hives.
I will try the Turkey, Sweet Potato, Broccoli and rice diet but my question is: do I have to reduce dairy products intake? Additionally, here in Lebanon we eat a lot of white bread. Do I have to stop that too?
I also tried the exercise therapy but hives seem never to stop! I have been taking hot showers for a couple of days now in order to mimic the effect of a sauna machine. Can that work?
Thanks in advance for your replies and good luck in overcoming hives!
