So I’ve been suffering from cholinergic urticaria for about two years now. I researched into this pretty quickly as I started feeling horrible as I would get triggered by everything, even starting a conversation with someone! Apparently that raises the body temp enough. No exercise, no more spicy food. Horrible.
Then I came across this site and few other sources ultimately trying all types of allergies medicine with nothing working. I took a trip to Thailand during the summer and the hot humid weather made me sweat nonstop there and had completely forgotten about my cholinergic urticaria, which came back when I moved to LA with dry heat. I got myself a portal sauna and that has been the only thing that helped.
Fast forward a year, I had completely gotten rid of CU through sweat therapy, and I could sweat like a normal person without scratching my entire body. Well….. that didn’t last too long as I had one week where I got extremely stressed from work and school. That very week , my CU came right back.
Now I do not let anything stress me out and through meditation and setting your mind not to get stressed. I meditate at the same time as I’m in sauna which feels so amazing and detoxifying. Hopefully, in short time I can reduce symptoms thru sweat therapy and ultimately get rid of it again.
IN SUMMARY, AVOID STRESS AT ALL COSTS, IF YOU CAN’T, TRAIN YOUR MIND TO BE OPTIMISTIC.
