What causes itching throughout the body with small red eruptions while working out?
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I am dr kakkar(dermatologist). You seem to have cholinergic urticaria. It is characterized by monomorphic, itchy wheals that suddenly appear in response to changes in core body temperature like a hot shower, excercising, eating spicy food, strong emotions like anger, embarrassment etc
Have you taken any treatment for it in the past?
Oral antihistamines for 3 weeks
I have reviewed the Images and reports. Your blood reports are largely normal except that you have Vit D deficiency, however this is not related to cholinergic urticaria. Cholinergic urticaria, is not a severe disease but it can be chronic.
I would suggest you to take a tablet of Montair- LC (levocetrizine + monteleukast) once daily at night for 3 weeks.
Topically you may use a soothing lotion e.g Calamine lotion Or Ritch creamy lotion, in case you experience any rash or itching.
