I’ve been dealing with this condition since my freshmen year of high school. I just graduated college so for about 8 years now. I get these outbreaks whenever the heater in the house or car is on, when I get embarrassed, scared, startled and anything like that. Sometimes I’ll just get them just because. As I am writing this I’m getting it and it’s driving me nuts.
I’m currently taking Hydroxizone for it which my doctor prescribed but it’s not doing anything for me. I tried other things to help fight yeast overgrowth and nothing.
The only thing that seems to work (and believe me, I know no one wants to hear this because we want to find a cure so badly) is sweating on a regular basis.
I played baseball all throughout high school and college and whenever I was in season I never suffered from this. The only time I would was when I took the winter off and started back up in the spring, the first few days of working up a sweat I would get the outbreaks but after that they would be gone.
That is literally the only thing that has worked for me. I hope this helps some of you because believe me, I feel your pain. This condition is terrible. And it sucks that there’s nothing out there for it. I’m going to start going to the sauna once a day so I can get rid of but I am dreading it because I know it’s gonna be so bad especially the first time. Anyways, I hope you guys try it and it works for you as well.
(Editor’s Note: always talk to a doctor before trying sweat therapy, as it may not be safe or appropriate for everyone).
