Has anyone tried getting some sun to help cholinergic urticaria?
I came across an article today about a guy who thinks his cholinergic urticaria is cured after getting two hours of sun for two consecutive days. After reading this, I immediately went outside since it’s really hot today (82F here in New York).
After just about 5 minutes of standing quietly under the sun, my itching started, and it was really burning. But as I have promised myself, I didn’t scratch it. I closed my eyes and kept praying to endure it.
After about 30 minutes, the whole itching stopped. I felt some sweat in my armpit and in between my legs. I decided to jump around in the sun and do a little running to see if I would itch. Well, I am glad to say that for the first time in 7 months, I was able to run and jump around–even under the hot sun–without getting a single itch. Did I sweat like I used to before cholinergic urticaria? The answer is no, but I believe strongly that the good Lord has heard my cry.
I know my healing process has started, and I am going to recover fully. Please, anyone who hasn’t tried getting some sun, please do so. Make sure you just stand, sit, or lay quietly under the sun, since doing any activity under the sun might increase the itchiness.
When you begin to itch, please just try to stand firm. After a short while I believe you will be a lot better. Today is the happiest day in my life. Please try this if you havent. Could cholinergic urticaria be caused by lack of sunlight? Well, I can’t really tell for sure but you might never know and please I didn’t do this alone. Keep praying. I don’t believe the sun alone helped me–my God heard my cry.
I hope this helps someone too.
