The ABC Homeopathy Forum

Sun/Heat/Exercise urticaria (??)

For about 8-9 months, after i had a very bad cold ( 1 week in bed ) i started to have red and itchy spots on my body when i go out to the sun. they start very fast- a few minutes after i go out. also when i have a hot shower or exercise.
Antihistamines and steroids did not help. Need any more information ? thank you in advance!

Urticaria generally has elevated bumps. You say only spots..confirm.

You told us what aggravates your symptoms. Tell us what brings you relief.

Tell us more about you. Your desires, aversions, effects of weather on you. Most importantly tell about anything which is different / unique for you.

i dont have any elevated bumps. only red, itchy and burning spots ( not always spots, sometimes patches - like sunburns ). the itching goes away after 10-15 minutes, the red spots/patches - after about 1 hour if i dont scratch.

also if i scratch my skin it begins to be very red ( never had this before ). the most sensitive parts are my back, the upper arms ( elbow and up ) and my chest/throat.

Cold things help - air conditioning, cold drinks, aloevera.

I always liked the winter more. I never liked the summer, I sweat a lot.

I am 23 years old male.

I started a new and very good relationship 3 months before this started.(Still going )

I was in a very demanding job until last month, I quit it.
I get angry very easily, also very hurt from criticism.

Try to apply ice to the spots and see if it helps. If you confirm, the medicine can be suggested, which will lessen the frequency and severity of the attacks.

Which country do you live?
gavinimurthy 7 years ago
I live in Israel.
Ice helps a little, mostly for the hot/itch.

Ok. Procure Apis 200.. Pills.

Take four of them before you go out in the sun/before exercise.

Avoid hot showers. Try lukewarm heat, just enough to make you not to shiver.

Take 4 pills ,if the patches appear on the skin. Don't scratch and see if they go away quicker than earlier.

Try for a couple of times and give feed back.

Okay i will buy some and tell you. thanks

Should i stop with the Nat Mur i am taking ? i currently take 1 pill each morning
avlcd 7 years ago
Yes. Stop it.
gavinimurthy 7 years ago
sadly, this did not help.
My homeopath told me to try and take 2 nat mur each day ( day and night ) and also cucculos indicus 3 times a day. any thoughts?
avlcd 7 years ago
You can try that. Nat.mur is generally suggested for symptoms caused by sun's heat.
gavinimurthy 7 years ago
Thanks. Anything special i should feel/witness while taking Nat.mur ?
avlcd 7 years ago
Nothing in particular. If nothing changes, after a few weeks, you may have to up the potency and observe.

You will find only temporary relief with homeopathy. I know what I am talking about.

In Ayurvedic terms you are suffering from excess pitta(fire).

Just Google pitta dosha.

Bitter( most cooling and purifying) astringent and sweet taste are for you.

Stay away from spices/sourness and salt.alcohol etc.

All liver herbs being bitter will help .

I can recommend more if you are interested

I am open to suggestions, will be happy for your recommendations if you think it will help me heal / get better
avlcd 7 years ago
Absolutely , you are welcome

I speak from my own experience with heat urticaria (cholinergic)

Heat aggravation is pitta excess.
Aloe Vera is good.but you need bit stronger bitter herbs which purify and cool down liver and blood.

You must be seeking cold, must be irritable and angry, impatient , ambitious,excessive thirst, yellow urine, competitive etc

That means excess pitta.

My suggestion anti pitta diet

You can start with liv 52 syrup/livercare from himalaya

I am angry and impatient, drinking a lot, and seeking cold, that's right.

I got myself a liver-cleaning extract, natural - herbs only.
Is that okay?
avlcd 7 years ago
**It contains Silybum Marianum, Taraxacum, Calendula Officinalis, Cynara Scolymus, Curcuma, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis, Zingiber Officinalis
avlcd 7 years ago
I am well versed with indian herbs hence I suggested liv52 /livercare from himalaya.its the best selling brand globally manufactured in india.

The formula you mentioned will help somewhat but not the best in my opinion.

Go for livercare if possible.it has excellent results.check its reviews on amazon.

Also Right diet would help immensely.
Teupne 7 years ago
Thank you. What is the right diet ?
avlcd 7 years ago
Pitta(heat) is pacified by bitter astringent and sweet taste.check out anti pitta diet online.

In your case first bitter herbs to detox/cool the system.

Do not take/reduce drastically food that is contraindicated for now I.e pungent sour and salty food.

No tea coffee alcohol junk food

Eventually its the diet that heals/balances inthe long run
Teupne 7 years ago
What about green tea ?
avlcd 7 years ago
No. As per ayurveda green tea is aggravating to the pitta dosha.so no.
Teupne 7 years ago
Thank you. The diet has to be forever, or until I am better?
Sorry if my questions are stupid, I am new. :)
avlcd 7 years ago
Certainly till you get well and definitely further also if the situation warrants.

Are you taking livercare as advised.?and the precautions with diet?
