I have had cholinergic urticaria for around 6 years now, and it got to a point where life was not worth living. However, now I’ve found something that works for me.
Every morning I take a hot bath (hot enough to make me break out). Even though I am breaking out, it is within the comfort of my own home. I can scratch and claw all I like without anyone seeing or knowing.
I sit in the bath trying to ignore the itch (extremely hard to do). Eventually, after around 10 minutes of extreme itching, it goes away. It’s like I have broke through a barrier. After doing this in the morning the majority of my day is itch free, and now I only itch when it’s extremely hot unlike before when even if I laughed I would uncontrollably itch.
I’m so happy that I have finally found something to ease my symptoms. Thanks for reading and good luck.
Ps is there anyone else from Scotland on this site ? I can’t be the only one.
