I have been battling cholinergic urticaria ever since I moved from England to Germany. I would have the most embarrassing flare ups even in public, and this made me hate socializing. I would always sweat so easily, but then I couldn’t even sweat at all.
Whenever I would itch, I would rush to pour cold water over myself or turn on the a/c. If I was in public, I would enter a grocery story and stand by the freezing isles. I never knew I was only making myself worse!
The cure for me is to keep warm. I forced myself to sit in a hot bath with epsom salts for 30 minutes, and it stung really bad. Since then the flares reduced and I can run again. I now sweat again!
I always keep warm and avoid cold drinks when possible. It’s crazy that I even changed my diet to gluten-free but even that never helped, but I did notice eliminating sugar was a positive.
I recommend everyone to consider staying away from cold remedies and warm up! It’s the only thing that worked for me.
