I’m 17 years old, and I’ve had Cholinergic Urticaria for about 6 months now. It sucks…. a lot. I believe I have heat hives, and I’ve always wanted to join the military. Is that at all possible?
I itch whenever I talk to certain people (like girls and whatnot). I have seen a decrease in symptoms now that I work out all the time, for at least 30-45 minutes every night. I work on a ranch and raise cattle, and for a long time during the winter (only whenever I physically exerted myself–it was a rather cold winter) I was entirely unable to work.
I took a whole bunch of Advil one day and just started working out and now its down to a manageable level. Also, whenever I get sun that also helps. I used to get massive red patches on my skin. However, that’s mostly gone now, and it is just rather irritating itching whenever I’m nervous, working out, or hot.
I don’t think I have an extreme case of cholinergic urticaria, but it still is extremely irritating.
