What are the treatments for choolinergic ururticaria?

ANSWER

These antihistamines, used to treat allergies, may help control the hives:

If antihistamines don't work, your doctor may recommend steroids for a short time.

If you have serious reactions -- like shortness of breath -- when you get hives, they may prescribe an epinephrine shot for you to keep on hand. This can help your breathing and get rid of hives and swelling.
