cholinergic urticaria and alopecia areata

Hi,

I believe I have cholinergic urticaria and alopecia areata - I have tried to describe the conditions in detail as per the posting guidelines.


32 yr old, male, vegetarian, non-smoking, non-drinking Indian, living in the greater NY area. I had suffered from acidity/heartburn from 2007-mid 2008 - when I gained 35 pounds, and since then have controlled it, and lost about 22 pounds and acidity is under control with timely food intake and smaller portions and occasional use of rolaid calcium supplements.

Help is greatly appreciated.

Cholinergic Urticaria
-----------------------
Each symptom in as much detail as possible.
* small red spots that are itchy and burn all over the body - prominently on shoulders, arms, back, chest, and legs - very red ears.

Where each symptom is located (ie at right temples)
*

What first started it off (ie walking in a cold wind)
* In Aug-1999 - 'reaction' to some Ayurvedic/Siddha medicine. The doctor, gave me an injection and some medicine (don't know what, and could not trace the prescription back) - and the problem went away. It came back in Jan'01 while waking up from a nightware (sleeping in a polyster sleeping bag)

When it's worse (ie on seeing bright lights, on stepping, before period, etc)
* usually observed when the sorrounding is hot, or when breaking sweat. e.g. entering a car on a hot summer afternoon, near a hot stove etc.
* usually more in winter than in summer

When it feels better (ie lying down in a dark room, when warm, when cold)
* Much better when I apply cold water, to the affected areas, when I deep breathe and goes away after few minutes

Your sleep pattern and details of any recurring dreams.
* Urticaria restarted in Jan'01 with a nightmare (when I slept in a polyester sleeping bag). Since then, sometimes wake up from nightmares with a rush of 'sweat-like' feeling, better with drinking cold water.

What you are sensitive to (ie, heat, cold, touch, criticism, etc)
* heat, criticism

Your state of mind (fears, anxieties, attitudes, moods, etc)
* At the time of the initial outbreak I was actually on a break transition from college to a nice job - so very relaxed and stress free. Now 10 years later, stress is part and parcel of the job.

Any desires or aversions for particular foods, and wether certain foods make you feel better or worse.
* Love spicy vegetarian food.

Details of any major diseases suffered in past.
* Jaundice in 1985
* Accident in 1994 causing some injury to forehead/scalp - was treated for preventive epilepsy - never had epilepsy

Detals of any reactions to other medicines taken.
* None

History of homeopathic treatment if any.
* None

All other symptoms you have (ie watering eyes, cold feet, thirst).
* Alopecia - described right after this.


Alopecia Areata
-----------------------
Each symptom in as much detail as possible.
* quarter sized oval shaped spot baldness on back of the head - noticed first on April 26 2009 after a haircut. Blamed it on a bad haircut. Spot is blemishless and soft as baby skin. No history of baldness in family - noticing rapid hair loss can visibly see dramatic reduction of hair density over the past 2 years.

Where each symptom is located (ie at right temples)
* back of the head - approx 2 inches above shirt collar.

What first started it off (ie walking in a cold wind)
* noticed first on April 26 2009 after a haircut. Blamed it on a bad haircut. Spot is blemishless and soft as baby skin. It is going to be 4 months since, and there is no change to the surface.

Your sleep pattern and details of any recurring dreams.
* Since then, sometimes wake up from nightmares with a rush of 'sweat-like' feeling, better with drinking cold water. Usually get 7-8 hours of sleep, but always feel it is not enough. If I catch a nap (10 mins or 30 mins), onset of sleep is delayed by 2 hours or so.

What you are sensitive to (ie, heat, cold, touch, criticism, etc)

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
during the burning sensation please take CARBO VEG 30C every 4 hours for some doses.

if you notice a difference in yourself after a few days,come back to me for further prescription.
