Medicine for urticaria

Common Questions and Answers about Medicine for urticaria


Avatar m tn Water urticaria, also known as aquagenic urticaria and aquagenous urticaria, is an extremely rare form of physical urticaria. It is sometimes described as an allergy. In affected persons, water on the skin causes hives to appear within 15 minutes and last for up to two hours. Water contact can cause aquagenic urticaria, presumably due to chlorine or some other trace chemical in the water, hence you don't exhibit reactions to distilled water.

Avatar m tn and that would be quite unusual for urticaria, commonly known as hives, to be painful, let alone very painful. The usual sensation is that of itch. Also it is unusual for urticaria to be associated with mouth ulcers. There is a condition called urticarial vasculitis in which the skin lesions cause burning and pain, rather than itching. What you are experiencing is potentially quite serious.
Avatar f tn My young son was miraculously approved for one vial of Xolair per month for chronic urticaria he's had for three years, unresponsive to any other drug including cyclosporine. Its been a miracle drug so far! He's had three injections and has been hive-free since the day after the first one. There is a chronic urticaria Yahoo group that will be very helpful for any of you with chronic hives...I am over on that list as well for my son.
Avatar f tn Sedating antihistamines such as Chlorphenamine9Benadryl) is used at night to get urticaria control. Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms. You may take Vitamin C along with the prescribed treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. If the hives don’t go after 6 wks of treatment also, then it can be a case of chronic urticaria which needs further evaluation as it may be due to auto antibodies.

Avatar n tn The cause of the Urticaria could also be related to the cause of your cough and, treatment for the Urticaria might even provide cough relief. Another simple method to determine if a med is causing your problems is to withhold that drug or use an unrelated substitute. Don’t do this on your own but only after consultation with your doctor.
1653132 tn?1301852306 Hello, Chronic urticaria is defined as urticaria that persists for longer than 6 weeks. In most of the cases of chronic urticaria, the underlying pathology is idiopathic i.e. it is not linked to any cause. It is essential to rule out the presence of serious illnesses of which recurring hives can be a symptom. Examples are hepatitis, hyperthyroidism, lymphomas, collagen vascular diseases etc. The most potent antihistamine for urticaria is probably the anti-depressant doxepin.
Avatar f tn Could this mean i have a skin infection and need to get some stronger medicine because cortizone is not working it only stops the itch for a lil while but the bumps dont go away sometime they are raised and bumpy and other times they are flat n smooth. I dont know what to do.
Avatar m tn Sounds like Dermographism, google for details if it is you may be able to write your name on your back, it lasts for a few mins, it is very itchy, could be connected to Chronic Urticaria , and allergy related .
Avatar n tn I have not taken any medicine the only thing diff is I got a cat 2 weeks ago BUT I have had cats in the past AND I have taken cat to vet for check up and all shots, I dont think I am allergic because the rash came suddenly and fast last evening now both of my arms are red with very tiny raised small bumps pls help. I have tried my daughters Elidel RX since she has eczema break outs but not very often and it looks nothing like mine. .
Avatar f tn s truly going on inside my body because I inject a monthly biologic medicine for Psoriasis/Psoriatic Arthritis and I think this medication interferes with my labs but, I can't find anything that backs my theory up.
Avatar m tn You can also take vit B6 and vit A and E which are good for hair and skin. Try medicated shampoos for dandruff. There are a number of over-the-counter shampoos available that can help. The most effective ingredients -- antimicrobials -- to look for are zinc pyridinethione, selenium sulfide, sulfur and ketoconazole (also available by prescription). If your hair is colored, don't use products with selenium sulfide or sulfur.
Avatar f tn Having endured the urticaria for over twenty years, I suspect that you have had multiple evaluations by well qualified physicians. The best advice I can provide is that you and your doctors seek consultation with a group of physicians who have engaged in research and reported on their experience with this disease. One such group is at the Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore. Contact information follows. Orden, Roy Anthony. Timble, Hersha. Saini, Sarbjit S.
Avatar n tn If the substance or allergy responsible for your urticaria can not be found, the symptoms of urticaria will need to be treated. Antihistamines are the primary medications used to control hives and stop the itching. If this persists, it would be best to see your doctor for further evaluation and management. Take care and keep us posted.

Avatar f tn We got medicine for his strep and then just gave him oatmeal baths and used non scented lotion. It got really bad and the entire top layer of his skin ended up peeling off. It was not fun. Just a suggestion, hope I could help.
Avatar n tn Place an ice cube on your forearm for 4 minutes and observe the area for 10 minutes afterwards. If you have cold urticaria, the area will become itchy and then swell approximately 2 minutes after removing the ice cube. Treatment is avoiding exposure to cold stimuli, including swimming or bathing in cold water. You can take antihistaminics like zyrtec or tegamet.You should enroll with Medic Alert and always carry Epi pen (injectable adrenaline) along with you. Hope it helps.

Avatar n tn I have been breakin out in hives for over a year now. It started on the nape of my neck as tiny white bumps, it has now turned into red hives that itch and now has spread to my trunk and upper legs and arms. A biopsy was done of one of the hives and it came back unidentified. i have been taking fexofenadine and use triamcinolonne acetonide cream but nothing seems to help. I cant sleep or sit still. I scratch until i bleed and then the hives turn into little scabs all over my body.
