Itching all over the Body + Redness / rashes / swelling and burning sensations there

I am a 42 years male ( married having 3 years kid ) having problem of severe itching all over the body with swelling and redness of skin with burning sensation at affected area.
I will try to mention all important points below which describes my problem and other things ( which will be helpful to have proper diagnosis and to find correct remedy.)
Problem : Itching all over the body almost every day with redness/ rashes and swelling and burning sensation in affected area ( after itching). In fingers and palm , I feel many neddle pricking inside. If I hold any substance tigthly or apply pressure, it happens. By taking Cetrizine once a day, I get temporary relief of about 18-24 hours from this condition. but taking cetrizine every day is not the right solution and I also worry about side effects of cetrizine on long term basis. I want to erradicate this condition from its root cause. Also facing the problem of Allergic Rhinitis and migraine and acidity.
The problem started almost 15 years ago around year 2000. At that time the problem was not very severe. I don't know the exact reason which triggered this problem.( but I think, not very sure, eating of boiled eggs aggravates the condition. I like boiled eggs very much so I used to consume them frequently at that time). I am also facing other problem of Allergic rhinitis since long time. Almost since year 1995.
In 2001 , I consulted a classical homeopath for this ( mainly allergic rhinitis) and took treatment for about 10 months. Problem got solved but I had to leave the treatment due to some circumstances.
Later, around 2008, I started facing the same problem. Allergic Rhinitis + Itching all over the body with redness/ rashes and swelling with burning sensation + Itching corner of eyes + severe headache ( migraine) + severe acidity.
In between years 2001 to 2008 also, there problems were there but not very severe so I didn't pay much attention there. I was taking painkillers like Paracetamol or nimesulide or Ibuprofen ( to stop headache) and Ceterizine to stop allergic rhinitis and itching all over the body.
When in 2009 the problems became too severe, I again consulted one more homeopathic Doctor and took very long term treatment for all the above problems. The treatment lasted for almost 5 years ( I really not sure whether homeopathic treatment should take such long time, though I am aware that chronic conditions take bit long time for permanent cure). I got almost 90 % relief after the treatment and later I stopped the treatment in consultation with Doctor ( stopped the treatment because even after taking medicines for long time , there was not further improvement above 90 %.. so Doctors also agreed to stop treatment on my request).
But now since last 3-4 months, the same problems stared again with same severity as it was in 2009. This time I didn't consulted the same Homeopath who treated me as now I don't have patience to take such a long treatment. Also somehow I felt that the homeopath to whom I consulted also not able to eradicate the root cause completely even after such a long treatment and he can't do further improvement.( I may be wrong in my interpretation).
Now I will elaborate my problem in more details :
Itching all over the body with redness/ swelling / rashes in affected area with burning sensation. I also feel like many needles are pricking from inside on my hand fingers and palm. Itching starts at any time ( no specific time). Swelling size is around 1-2 mm in height and width depends on the area which I scratch .
Generally most common affected area are shoulders, hands,back , abdomen though it affects almost all parts of the body. It starts from anywhere and keep shifting from one area to other area. On one particular area it remains there from 10-20 min and then shifts to other area. Its so irritating and unbearable that I have to take cetrizine and then only it get relief after 1-1.5 hours. Cetrizine effect lasts for only 18-24 hours and then again the symptoms start and I have to take cetrizine.
I didn't notice which conditions aggravates the condition but I think eating eggs, consumption of alcohol ( I occasionally drink and that too in small quantity), Warm/ Hot weather start / aggravates the condition. With application of cold water / air , I feel bit relived for some time.
My likes and dislikes :
Eating : I like eating spicy food. Usually there is more chilly in our food. I Like to take hot tea, hot foods. I was eating chicken/ mutton till 2001 ( not very frequently ) but left since 2001. I like to eat boiled eggs( those also I consume less as I doubt eating egg aggravates urticaria). I also like sweets but very specific like Basundi / Rasmalai/ Rasgulla. I drink milk every night. Food schedule is breakfast in the morning at around 7.30 am ( poha or upma or chapati), Lunch in between 1.00-1.30 PM ( 2 Chapatis with vegetables) , light snacks and tea at around 4.30 PM and Dinner at around 7.00-8.00 PM. ( menu same as of lunch). Don't like bitter things.Like cold things too like ice cream/ cold drinks.
My Personality / Nature : Fearful / lack of self confidence and initiative , not a risk taker , like family life as well as social life, restless, bit shy to talk in front of many people (lack of stage daring), take tension of small-small things in life, always worried about present and future ( as financial condition is not good since start ).
Give my full efforts if I decide some task. Hard working. Loyal. Honest. Helpful to others. Find difficult to lie.
Gets angry early. Mostly get angry if something not happens ( or some one not listen to me despite of telling many times) as expected. In worst and rare case I hit my hand on table or wall to get calm down. Most of the time I manage the anger my keeping quite but that irritates me a lot internally.
Impatient. Want to finish give task as early as possible if its important and urgent else lazy to do it.
Like to travel at different places for enjoyment ( can't do it due to financial constraints) but for work , prefer office job at one place.
I don't like serious people. (although my own personality is like that ) . Like company of jolly person. Don't have too many close friends but all those are very loyal. But I like to have company of many friends.
Sleep : Sleep is mostly disturbed. I was having problem of insomnia for many near though now its not there. Don't feel that much fresh in the morning due to incomplete sleep ( disturbed sleep of 6-6.5 hours). Don't sleep in the afternoon due to working hours but like to sleep in the afternoon. I like to keep fan on even in winter season. Can't sleep if there some kind of sounds like , TV, music with bass on.
Sex Drive : Have reasonable sex drive .
Habits : Don't smoke. Drink occasionally.
Occupation : Office job. Sitting job on computer continuously for 6-8 hours.
Climate : I prefer Cold climate. Feel very restless and irritated in summer / warm weather. Rainy season is okay.
Thrust : Don't Like to drink much water. Water consumption is not very much every day.
Medical History : 1) Got operated for Phimosis in Year 2010.
2) Uretroscopy done recently 2 months back for Kidney stone removal of 8 mm trapped in ureter. I had Kidney stone problem since 2010. At that time Kinney stone was 4 mm. I didn't took it seriously as someone advised to drink lot of water and said it will automatically get flushed out. Later when pain stared I noticed it was grown in size to 8 mm. It started paining daily so took decision to get it removed by uretrescopy. Few days before to Operation I tried Berberis Vulgaris (10 drops in 1/4 cup of water ) for few days for kidney stone removal. I don't know whether this medicine was the cause of starting urticaria or not. Because after few days of taking it.. my itching symptoms started.
(Please some one suggest some homeopathic remedy for this also so that in future I don't face kidney stone problem)
If some more information required, please let me know here so that I can elaborate those things too.
Requesting all competent Homeopathic doctors to give solution to my Urticaria + Allergic Rhinitis + Acidity + Headache problems.

Thanks and best Regards

Hi,

Please take Sulphur 200C, 4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water, 1 time a day, for 3 days.

Down the road, you will need Bryonia 200C and Lac Can 200C.

Many prayers for your good health.

Dear Sir,

Please also advise should I take "Cetrizine Tab" to relieve symptoms while I am taking Sulphur 200C. I am asking this because every 24 hours I need to take it to get relived from sever itching symptoms.My doubt is if I take Cetrizine while homeopathic treatment is going on, it may hamper the good effects of Homeopathy. Also I will not be able to assess the actual effect of taking Sulphur 200C for 3 days.
So please advise what should I do? Shall I refrain from taking Cetrizine for these 3 days ( despite of sever itching) or can I take it if condition is very severe?

Thanks and Best Regards

Hi Nawazkhan Sir,

As per your advise took 3 doses of Suphur 200C .This is the 3rd day of taking Suphur 200C (3rd dose took today morning at 7.30 am).

I noticed following changes in my itching..

1) Overall itching reduced to some extent ( if have to quantify then, can say that around 5-10%)

2) I had to take Cetrizine as usual but I could prolong to take after 36 hours ( Previously I have to take it in 24 hours)

3) There is shift of place of itching from Shoulder / abdomen to thighs and lower part if leg. On shoulder its there but very less.

4) After itching, swelling is relatively less. But redness is still there.

I forgot to mention one thing that when I was facing these symptoms in 2009, I was also suffering from "sciatica type "pain. Either one hand or one leg was paining right from its origin.

I am very grateful for your selfless help here to me and many here in this forum which can't be expressed in words.

Please advise next course of action.

Many thanks for your kind help and concern.

Best regards

Hello Sir,

Few other things regarding other complaints..

1) Rhinitis symptoms not there .( May be because I am taking Cetrizine every day. For rhinitis, Cetrizine effect lasting for 2-3 days.) So couldn't actually judge the actual affect of Suphur 200 C on this problem.

2) Acidity problem is much lesser than previous.

3) No headache experienced in these 3 days. Though some heaviness was there in morning time.

Actually my Major problem at this moment is Sever Itching. Want to get rid of it disparately.

Thanks a lot one again.

Best Regards

"Is it happening now too?"

No its not happening now a days since 2014. It was my problem previously.

Thanks a lot.

Hello Sir,

Took Bryonia 200C for 3 days as prescribed by you.

Observed following changes :

1) Overall itching is reduced .( Approx 30-40% less than previous).

2) Took Cetrizine Tablet but I could prolong to take it after 48 hours.

3) Itching is mostly on legs and forearms and on face( some times on tongue too).

4) After itching redness and swelling is less ( 50% less )than previous.

5) For last 2 days my sleep is quite disturbed. Slept at around 12.30 - 1.00 am and sleep got disturbed around 3.30-4.00 am. The reason behind disturbed sleep(might be) is cold atmosphere at night and due to which sneezing starts at night.

6) Also there was increased itching at the corner of eyes during sneezing .

7)There was also headache for 2 days and that was mostly due to disturbed and very less sleep ( Took Paracetamol 500 mg Tablet to over come headache).

8) Since yesterday I am facing irritation in throat ( symptoms of starting phase of cold). But now that throat problem is not sever this morning.

Overall I am very happy that itching is reduced and I am grateful to you for your kind help.

Please suggest me next course of action. Also please inform whether if there is one day gap happens for taking medicines, will it affect the treatment. (I mean to say , for example, if now my next course of action is Lac Can 200C, then as today is Sunday, I will be able to procure the medicine tomorrow morning only. So there will be one day gap between Bryonia 200C and lac Can 200C.)

Many many thanks once again. I am very happy for your help which showing positive effects.

Edit : (This I am Posting at 10.05 am for updating) : My itching started increasing now.( 48 hours will complete at 3.00 PM for taking Cetrizine. Itching is now on shoulder and back also.I am feeling that i should take Cetrizine right now but trying to extend it till 3.00 PM.But don't know I will be able to control myself till that period or not. May have to take it early.)

I have taken Paracetamol 500 mg Tablet today morning to control headache. headache is now in control.

Generally I have observed that ( observation from my treatment period of 2009-2014)if itching reduced then either headache or sneezing or acidity symptoms increases and vise versa). Acidity in control in last 3 days.

Current symptoms ( itching reduced but other problems increased) are correlating to above so thought better to mention it here.

Best regards

Dear Sir,

Took Lac Can 200C as advised by you.

I haven't noticed any significant changes in my symptoms ( Overall the situations was almost similar after taking Bryonia 200C.

Since last 3 days, I am facing throat infection problem. Today my voice is totally down. I can't speak due to throat infection.

Also facing burning sensations at bottom of feet since last so many days. Today I feel this symptom intensity is increased( I am very sorry that I forgot to mention this things previously as its not every day. Some time it increases, some time its quite normal)

Please suggest next treatment.

Many Many Thanks for your help.

Dear Sir.

Updating current situation. Itching started now ( took Cetrizine yesterday night at 11.00 am. Now its 5.50 Pm of today.) So just want to highlight the fact that itching started even before 24 hours. Which was previously happening after 36 hours)

Itching is on shoulders and redness with swelling is happening with same intensity as fresh itching.

Today morning I didn't took Lac Can 200C as 3rd dose was yesterday morning.

Sleep is also disturbed. Just 4 hours sleep at night.
Thanks a lot

What are the current Mind symptoms?

Please list all remedies at home right now?
 
nawazkhan 4 years ago
Mind is restless. There is feeling of high uncertainty related to income ( its usual state of mind most of the time).
Some sort of sadness in mind. Feeling quite demotivated and frustrated. Things not happening as expected in life since long time so feeling very nervous. Feeling like should go somewhere to quite and peaceful place alone where there is no one around and I should spend time alone.
Don't know but mind desperately want peace of mind which is not there in my life.
Want good changes in life. Struggling for that but those things running away from me.

Right now I have Sulphur 200c, Bryonia 200C and Lac Can 200C at my home.

For symptomatic relief I have allopathic medicines like Ceterizine and Parcaetamol in case of urgency.

The itching which started just before 2-3 hours ( which I mentioned in my previous post) is not there now.That episode lasted for 10-15 min and now itching symptoms are not there at all.

Voice still down. I took sleep in the afternoon for 2 hours so feeling relatively good than morning.

Sad mind, feeling of uncertainty, some sort of fear is major concern at this moment.

Thanks and Best regards

"some sort of fear is major concern at this moment. "
Please describe this fear in detail with examples.

How many times a day, you talk to your creator? How many minutes, do you remember him in a day? How much thanks do you give per day for the blessings and mercies of our creator.

Also, please give details of your Sad Mind.
 
nawazkhan 4 years ago
Hello Sir, Good Morning.

Some sort of fear : 1) For example. I am doing business with my partner. Though he is partner in business, but he also do partnership with other people for same business in which I don't have share of profit.( I can't prevent him from doing that) So it affects my business income and growth. So loss of business and income is one of the fear.
2)my wife is going for preliminary viva before submission of final thesis for Ph.D. The success of viva is very important. So there is fear in my mind whether she will be able to successfully complete that. If not satisfactory, then she will have to take one more year for extension for completion of Ph.D ( Already its 6 years).
3) My health problems which are there since years and also recently ( in Jan.15)has spectroscopy for kidney stone removal . So all these things creating some sort of fear related to health. I worry if all these problems are there even at the age of 42 , the how it will be more age. Fear of losing money on treatments ( this fear of losing money is because there is insufficient money and cost of treatments are very high these days)

Sad Mind : Due to all these things & mostly financial instability even at the age of 42 causing sadness of mind most of the time.I lack initiative and confidence , daring to start new things and hence my growth is limited (I attribute these things for lack of my success in business). I am hard worker and do my assigned work with full strength, but that's not sufficient to get money in business.At this moment, doing job is out of question as I am not interested in it at all no one will offer job with good salary with such a long gap after completing education.

"How many times a day, you talk to your creator? How many minutes, do you remember him in a day? How much thanks do you give per day for the blessings and mercies of our creator: :

This is the weakest area in my life. I rarely talk to our creator. Its not like that I don't believe Him. But I rarely remember Him in a day and whenever I remember, its mostly for complaints in my life. I know this is totally wrong but don't know because of continuous problems in my life, I subconsciously might not trusting Him.

"How much thanks do you give per day for the blessings and mercies of our creator." : Very rarely.

I want to improve on these front. but yet not improved. But will start doing these things from bottom of my heart now.

What I believe is that if we are good to others. help needy people, that's the worship of creator. I do this in my life where ever possible.So in this way I trust Him. But don't Pooja and all other things, I don't believe that much. Going in temple and asking help from God for our problems, I don't believe it.I believe that something wrong I have done with others so I might have all these sufferings. So I should work on my "Karma" to get rid of it which I do to some extent where ever possible.

I know, apart from medicines, this things will help.. so I will start doing these things.

I am very thankful to you for showing me right directions in life.

Thanks and Best regards
