Cholinergic Urticaria

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

Hives caused by heat – I suffer from them every single day. Ever since I moved here in Manila, them bloody hives have become the bane of my existence. As the heat intensifies every summer, my sweat glands are agitated, the red, mosquito bite-like bumps spread all over and the itching gets worse and worse. Antihistamines do not work; they only manage to make me sleepy and woozy. Come to think of it, I must be allergic to my own sweat.

I am allergic to my job. What works for my allergy is napping on the job. :)

I know exactly what you mean. I have had cholinergic urticaria for nearly 8 years now.

Every time I do anything that increases my body temperature, I am nearly brought to my knees with the itching, stinging, and burning sensation of cholinergic urticaria.

Like you, the antihistamines do nearly nothing to help my CU.

Anyway, I hope your hives get better, and I just wanted to let you know that feel your pain.
