It’s been a while since I last posted an update about my health.
So as I mention every thread, my cholinergic urticaria started during the ending of autumn and starting of winter, I thought it was because of steroids, but now I realised that it has probably have to do something with puberty, because I am 17 years old and I have heard a multiple people who had CU around the same age and it lasted about two years, so I guess this is a puberty thing for me, but I might be wrong.
I thought that it is seasonal for me and that it will go away in the warm weather, but it’s now 11th day of May and it ain’t going anywhere, BUT… Here in my country we already have warm weather, it’s usually around 23 C, but already gets up to 27 C somedays. I was afraid of warm weather, because cold was the only relief, but it got easier for me. You see, at the start of spring, during warm weathers, for example getting into a heated up car was a fucking death for me, but now, it feels like the point of getting an itching attack has risen, because now I can go outside, stay in the sun without moving that much around, get into a car that is hot as fuck inside and not get an attack, where as if I exposed my body to this much heat instantly let’s say in winter, I would be ripping my skin of because of itching. Also, when I get an attack, it is a little bit easier to get through it, itching is still bad, but I manage to get through it.
Another thing, last summer (I didn’t have CU yet) I didn’t spend a lot of time outside and was pale, had no tan, etc.. I’ve seen in the forum, that Vitamin D seems to be the answer of a relief for some people, and now, I am exposing myself to sun more often, meaning I get some Vitamin D in my body system, I also got a little tan around my arms, maybe that is why my situation got a little better? Is that a possibility?
Also, I got to mention, that I am not using antihistamines anymore, they are just not working it seems like. I used zyrtec for a week and then kestine for a week and just went like that, switching it every week.
However, I still can not sweat, sweat is just not breaking up through my belly, arms, etc. I got sweaty ass creak, armpits, sometimes back a little bit, feet, but that’s about it, I can not sweat like normally.
So, guys, what do you think, is there still a chance that it is seasonal and still go away anytime soon? Because weather is warm already, wouldn’t it have been gone if it was seasonal? What do you think? I think I’m gonna give it another month, if it doesn’t go away, I’ll invest like 200 € and buy myself that little portable sauna thingy, to get my life quality even better, I guess..
I’d be more than happy to hear your opinion about my situation and what do you have to say, especially these people, who don’t have CU for the summer.
Thanks so much!
