Welcome to e health forum.

Cholinergic urticaria is a form of neuropathic itching disorder, where the neural irritation causes the individual to experience symptoms in the absence of actual triggers.

Symptoms like intense itching, tingling, etc present when a person is stressed, anxious, nervous or takes a hot bath, exercise or any other activity, which causes rise in the body temperature.

Treatment with antihistamines and steroids might be of help to reduce the symptoms. In addition, having a cold shower, use of calamine lotion, oatmeal baths, application of cold packs, and wearing clothing made of highly absorbent material would be of help.

In severe cases, stronger medications can be prescribed to control the symptoms. hence consulting your doctor or a dermatologist for a proper medical opinion would be highly recommended.

I hope this helps.
