So I’ve had cholinergic urticaria for many years now, and it usually doesn’t bother me. But recently it seems like I’ve been experiencing it more frequently and more severely. A few weeks ago, I developed a total rash throughout my body while taking a hot shower. I also felt somewhat lightheaded, and I was wheezing a bit. Luckily I cooled down and nothing happened after that.
However, after that experience, I have cholinergic urticaria almost every day when I go outside since it’s summer, and I’m experiencing lightheadedness and wheezing almost every time. My doctors are aware that I have cholinergic urticaria, but I’m not sure what to do since my symptoms have been getting worse.
Are these symptoms concerning or do other people with CU also commonly experience this?
