I’m 28 years old, and I just started being affected by cholinergic urticaria about a month ago. This is killing me and I haven’t even hit the warm temperatures of Spring and summer yet.
I’ve tried Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and Zyrtec (Cetirizine) both with very limited success.
Has anyone tried Chlorpheniramine yet? It seems to be the common thread in treatment listed in http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/
NB: Don’t take this or any other drug without talking to your doctor first. I’m not advocating its usage, mostly just trying to get more info
I honestly don’t know how I’m going to be able to survive the summer. Giving up hiking and sports would be bad enough, but if it can trigger simply by being in non air conditioned climate? This is going to be rough.
Unrelated question, but does anyone know how long I can expect this to last? Months? Years? Trying not to stress out, as it won’t help and might just make things worse…but at the moment I’m wondering if this will make me put my entire life on hold for a decade. Not a prospect I’m looking forward to.
