Can anyone help me? (Urticaria)
« on: 27/12/2007 16:55:18 »
I have been suffering from Urticaria for the past 6 to 7 months and one of my friends told me this disease name after hearing the symptoms. I am suffering from the itchy rashes almost on all parts of the body, severely on hands and legs. In the initial stages these rashes are not itchy but after a few days the itching becomes severe. Sometimes swelling of the lips also occurs. Most of the time these rashes starts in the evening and they starts disappearing after some hours. I am a pure vegetarian and I donít have habits like smoking and drinking. Whenever these rashes started I used to take Avil or Cetrizine (anti allergy pills). I am really bothered about my situation. Once I have taken English medicine, but that was of no use. After few days, I went to a Homeopathic clinic after I started using the medicine I never faced the problem for the next two months. But after a few days they started again and with full intensity. I am continuing the same medicines but they are not showing any effect. Let me know whether this disease is curable or not. I will be grateful for your suggestion. Thanks!

David...I have moved your topic to a more relevant part of the site and I have slightly altered the name if it too so that I hope you can benefit from some good responses.

I wish you well and hope for a speedy resolution to your ailment.

As a "pure vegetarian" (vegan?) you may be have a vitamin deficiency which is causing the urticaria.

Certain foodstuffs can cause this allergic reaction, you could try keeping a diet diary to see if there is a correlation between certain foods and recurrence of symptoms.

Hi david234,

What's your job?
Where do you live?
Have you any cat or dog?
...allergy is such a wide issue!
I had such a thing ages ago, and it was latex.
Cheers,

ikod
