Cholinergic pruritus is a rare condition characterised by generalised itch provoked by sweating without an associated rash. It is exacerbated by heat, exercise, emotion or activities of daily living.(1) The pruritus can be severe and have a considerable impact on the patient's life. A 60 year old gentleman presented to our clinic in 2012 with a 9‐month history of severe pruritus and a burning sensation that was induced by exercise and heat and relieved by cooling. The symptoms were not associated with a skin rash. His Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) score of 23/30 indicated an extremely large effect on his quality of life.
