Hello, my name is Matt. I was diagnosed with cholinergic urticaria about a month ago. It’s something I’ve had for years (I’m 19) without knowing what it was, always being told by my parents it was hormones.
So I have seen my local doctor he prescribed me the strongest antihistamines he could, but they had no effect. He then gave me steroids, which prevented the red rash from appearing on my skin, but I could still feel the usual stinging nettle sensation.
I’ve looked on here and various other sites and phototherapy has been mentioned multiple times. I’m curious to know if anyone has used phototherapy for cholinergic urticaria? If so, did it work? What was the treatment like?
