Aquagenic urticaria: What gives you relief?

I don’t take it unless I’m itchy or know I’ll be showering…it lasts about fours hours…

I also itch with change in air temperature, especially during seasonal weather changes…I take 750 mg when I anticipate an itch coming on…

BA can cause tingling of the skin if you take too much, so start slow…I find the dose that is recommended when using BA as a pre workout supplement is too high and causes tingling (which only lasts about 30 mins…).
I hope it works for you…

After 6 years of suffering with hives and several doctors and prescriptions, currently on dupixent which is not helped as of yet, 8 weeks in, I have tried beta alanine. The one I bought never came with a scoop Soni guesstimated. That turned out to be a bad move. I definitely got the tingling, it was very annoying and uncomfortable, thank God it lasted only a hour or so. But.... omg for the first time in years I went in water and did not experience hives. I swam for 30 minutes and the sat in a hot tub. Normally I would be fully broke out. I only had a couple very faint spots on my legs. I am so grateful. I wish my dermatologist would have been able to diagnose this more carefully. I will contact him again to discuss. I will try this again today but at a more closely monitored dose. Definitely dont want that tingling effect again.
