Cholinergic itch is part of symptom complex that also includes cholinergic erythema and cholinergic urticaria. It mostly occurs during the winters among young adults. It is characterized by onset of severe itching or burning sensation all over body, mostly, on exposure to sunlight, warm atmosphere and in some cases after hot and spicy food intake. In most of the cases, it is poorly responsive to antihistamine therapy.
