Urticaria (hives)

my problem is that i have urticaria and have had it for 2 years approx.

i get it only at night and it usually disappears by the morning. i get it on my thighs mainly and rarely on the upper torso.

i have seen the doctor twice and he juust says that it will go within a month or two, but it hasnt. he did recommend eating different types of foods to see if i was allergic to certain foods that contain additives. Also he said to change my washing up powder, which i did a year ago and i must say itis about 80% better than it originally was.

my mum says that it is only there because i am at the adolecent age of 16 and because im growing so quick, it causes a rash to appear. i must say i have grown about 1ft in a year.

i do take tablets the doctor has given me called 'Loratadine' and these work a treat but i cant take them for the rest of my life.

i also have a dog at home which could have caused the rash to appear.

Can anyone give me some advice on getting rid of this?

My son would have Urticaria on his leg after taking the bath once in 1-2 week.

One tablespoon of remedy(urtica urens Q 3-4 drops in half cup of water) and he would would get the relief within 10 minutes. This happend 7-8 times.

From last 2 months or so he has not experienced the problem.

are there any other remedies?
spowell last decade
hi erika, look at the details above
spowell last decade
did you look at the remedies recommended above? have you tried them already?
why do you think your dog may be causing the hives - does he sit on your lap or is there another reason?
when did this start - was there anything that came in contact with your skin (apart from the clothes/washing powder) at the time?
erika last decade
it must have started when i was about 12 or 13. i am now 16 and it is gradually going away but its a matter of how long. i have a dog and he has been around since i was about 13. but i dont think it is the dog because if it im sure i would get it over my hands and upper torso and not my thighs.
spowell last decade
did you read/try any of the remedies already suggested?
erika last decade
well i take tablets at the moment and they stop the blotches coming up for a day or two but it never goes permenatley. i dont know wether to buy those tablets suggested above because i dont know what they are like and if they work or not, so it might be a waste of money

I can understand your hesitation in this respect - if you want to treat yourself for this then the best thing to do first of all is read about these remedies on abc forum and see if the symptoms in them match your skin symptoms (look also at what makes them better or worse can compare with that in the remedy information). If this does not help you decide then either come back with more details about yourself, any food preferences, weather preferences and a lot more info about your general health and personality so that we can try to match a remedy for you.
the other, probably better, option is to go to a homeopath near your home so that you can talk in really good detail about yourself and your hives and get good treatment this way.

I began getting hives around the age of 16 and they disappeared for years and resurfaced in my late 2o's...at that time I was dx with hashimotos which is an underactive thyroid....I had high thyroid antibodies...you may want to mention to your mom to see if she can take you for bloodwork to check the antibodies...some times they can cause it...other than that....do not take hot showers as this can aggrivate it and I have found that body cleansers with lavender help.
good luck to you

After struggling for a cure for this particular and very peculiar skin allergy I consulted the best of the doctors for a remedy but the only answer I would get is,
we need to test your blood, urine, blah, blah, blah.

Then I consulted another skin specialist who said 'Lab test will cost you a lot of money let me prescribe you some medicine and lets see how good your situation will be;
cause we cannot cure this allergy in a day or two but if these medicines work then you will need to continue taking these pill for more than a couple of years'
which i did follow the advice for my benefit.

But the pills were of heavy dose and i would get a massive head ache for at least 6 hours from morning to noon these were the know side effects forget about the unknown ones but I still continued but no respite from the pills either, this was affecting my work too then one fine day I started browsing the internet for answers and I was shocked to see the fact especially help section on dermographism in this web site that there are a lot of people suffering from this chronic itch from 20 long years; for example and still looking forward to take pill.

I don’t know when it will end for me that’s what I was thinking back of my mind until I saw a particular message that says
'causes for dermographism'

There was a list of food items and medicines that can cause all this starting from antibiotic medicine for ear infection and pain killer like aspirin etc and foods like sugar, wheat, bread, alcohol, pickle, honey, fruits etc..

This shows that either your allergy is caused due to sugary food or sweets, sweets fruits, honey, chocolates; avoid them. Bread, alcohol, anything that is fermented cause it has yeast which is a good bacteria for humans but the antibodies in your body are either not resistant to them or they are dead.

All milk products these also has lot of good bacteria that is good if consumed but your body is rejecting them and thus all the itch and allergy so try to avoid all these foods for a couple of days and eat anything apart from them like cooked rice but not fermented ones and avoid eating sugar right from morning in your coffee, tea, milk etc , then your breakfast could ideally be corn flakes and lunch could contain barley, corn, leafy vegetables etc. This is what I did finally I tried eating the one which i should not like wheat, bread, milk, one by one on a daily basic until I came till sugar yes this was the culprit for me.

on a sunny afternoon after traveling for about 1 1/2 hour ride to remote place i was offered coke and I could not resist and within minutes I got the disgusting itch back on my body and I concluded the study as sugar is the main reason for the problem. Today I eat every thing except my medicines and sugar.

yes you need to give up all these at least for some time else you will end up looking like a pink baboon which i was and u might be after itching all over your body. Take this advise as a second had experience if you are also allergic to sugar than don’t consume any for minimum 6 months and try again and the same for any other foods also and try not to take any medicine prescribed for dermographism by doing this you will be improving your natural immune system and back to normal.

I know it is very easy to advise someone and difficult to follow but this procedure will not only help you to be independent away from allopathic medicine which is sometime too much is too bad and can lead to unknown side effects which any will cause another two or three side effects sounds like a chain reaction but this is the hard fact of today’s modern world and there's much to be done to educate people.

If you look back to history and see how our ancestors were able to cope up with all these kind of diseases the answer is natural medicine which is 100% accurate and 100% no side effects but in fact they act as a good immune builder not as a destroyer which is what we have excepted in our modern day life which a busy and end up paying our hard earned money into the doctors pocket...

SO I wish you all the best and I am open for feed backs and you can mail me at ravisgoyal'at'gmail

Yea I remember having these a while back, it really sucks when you have to go through this as they can really mess with your lifestyle.
The best advice I can give you is to hold on and you'll make it out of there soon :)

Just like i did with this product.

Worked great for me now I'm feeling better than ever
might work for you too

I know it does suck! Horrible! I tried everything so either look at that link or go to an American doctor & he/she will ask you if you have ever tried epinephrine. I know this is NOT HOMEOPATHIC! but this was the last resort for me after allegra,singulair,zyrtec, loratadine, multiple allergy shots & multiple allergy tests & blood tests. He administered the epinephrine shot & stayed in the office for .5 hours after until the adrenaline wore off. But, the NEXT DAY MY HIVES WERE GONE & NEVER CAME BACK! Listen, it works just like with a bee sting & saves lives!
