I have had this condition for at least 13 years now maybe more. I have never known what has caused this. My Dad would take me to doctors but we never received any answers. So I have never thought much of this condition.
So when people would ask what was wrong with me, I would simply state I get a heat rash whenever my body temperature gets raised. It wasn’t until I was scrolling through Facebook that I ran across another post mentioning cold urticaria.
I started searching “hot urticaria” and I came across so many articles and websites about cholinergic urticaria. I am 23 and have finally found an answer. When I found out it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders.
My biggest triggers are getting embarrassed, getting nervous, and just heat in general. I live in Texas so just walking outside while I’ve been in the AC will cause me to breakout. But the point of all of this is that I am thankful for this website. I have some insight to this condition, and I am not alone. So thank you so much!
