Urticaria

Hi,
I m having allergies every year. I cant understand the reason for that. I have severe urticaria/hive that is getting my body swallen and hot. The last 2 years is getting worse as my face is also swallen and my eyes are closing. Antihistamines are not helping much and all creams/body lotion medicines seems to make it worse as my skin is getting more itchy and irritated. I had urbasone(not sure about the name) injection last summer and it improved quickly but this is not recommended for often use. Please help me to find out what is going on and how to prevent /help myself.
I have home dust allergy.

Re: Urticaria

Thank you for your post,
Your symptoms sound really troublesome, it sounds like you may already be under a specialist, if so please discuss your symptoms with them. If not, please seek a review from your GP who can refer you to a dermatologist or allergist if appropriate. In some cases the symptoms you describe are not due to an identifiable allergic trigger, but rather an unexplained spontaneous process, either way your GP/specialist can hopefully advise on this and how to manage your symptoms better.
