OxyHives for Cholinergic Urticaria (Anyone tried it?)
Post by: ItchingSux on January 23, 2010, 03:53:07 PM
So I was searching online the other day for any new developments on cures for Hives/Cholingeric Uriticaria, anywho I came across this supposed treatment called OxyHives.
Anywho the treatment claims to reduce the symptons of hives and in some cases cure it, well as anyone I’m skeptical of anything I find on the internet. So I was wondering has anyone tried this product yet and know whether or not it actually does help? I’m thinking I may just take the risk and try it out just to see if it works, as we all know when you have Hives your willing to try anything no matter how ridiculous and stupid it may sound.

No, I haven’t tried it.
To be honest, I don’t think it is going to do anything for cholinergic urticaria, and if anyone claimed that it did, I’d be inclined to think that it was pure coincidence. I’m kinda frustrated by products like these that promise to cure or help all sorts of hives problems. They even boast on their page that this can cure or treat “heat hives,” which apparently refers to cholinergic urticaria.
Well, let’s use a little common sense here: If this stuff worked, don’t you think I’d create 100 threads on this site, email everyone, send out press releases, and everything else so that the whole world could know that they can cure their chronic hives by some “magical” spray called oxyhives?
Also, don’t you think the incredible success of such a product would cause every dermatologist office to snatch it up so they can spray a customer for $300 per visit, and make a small fortune by curing all of the hives conditions in the world?
But unfortunately, in the real world, we all know better. It is easy to get caught up in “too good to be true” products online, but if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
In fact, the person selling this could make a small fortune right now. All they have to do is send a free sample to a few of our “veteran members” who suffer from this condition (or myself).
We could try it out (since it is so effective and all), and then sell it to everyone on the forum repeatedly (since I assume you have to keep spraying it on regularly to maintain its effect). We could work out a great business deal, and it would be win, win, win for everyone: They’d win by selling more of their product; I’d win by earning a commission from selling their product; and hives sufferers would win by having their hives cured.
Seriously though, I wouldn’t waste my time with it, in my opinion. Also, I find it highly annoying that they claim it cures or treats cholinergic urticaria.
