Any suggested treatments for aquagenic pruritus?

Posted by @kovalikd, May 10, 2015

Any suggested treatments for aquagenic pruritus? Diagnosed with this at Mayo about 10 years ago and continue to suffer. It has actually gotten much worse. Light treatments seemed to offer some relief but with only one dermatologist offering and high cost of treatment it is not feasible. In addition office hours are during my work hours so receiving light treatment is currently not possible. I am desperate for some relief. Thank you for any suggestions.

Hi Diane. Sorry to hear what you are going through! Unfortunately, the light therapy is the most effective treatment that has been identified thus far. Another Connect user said they reduced their sugar and increased their salt intake and saw improvement. I’d recommend speaking to your doctor about this before trying it though. If you’d like to speak to a doctor at Mayo Clinic, please call one of our appointment offices (Arizona: 800-446-2279 Florida: 904-953-0853 Minnesota: 507-538-3270). Hope you find some relief!
