Review exposure hx: The Allergex may help slow or stop the reaction or itching. Monitor her status because more intense symptoms may require injected meds.

If it settles down its just a waiting game.If it worsens she needs to be seen. ...Read more

Dermatographic urticaria for over a year, 3 hard immobile lumps under skin, very itchy skin. What could this be ? I am 23 and cancer is in my family.
A few things: The most common causes of "lumps under the skin" (mobile or nonmobile) are lipomas (growth of fatty tissue) or cysts, which are both benign but can cause problems if they continue to grow. I don't think the itchy skin is related. There are various other growths/tumors that can present like this. I recommend having it evaluated by a dermatologist to determine if these should be excised. ...Read more

I have reddish blotches on my abdomen and under breasts. No longer itchy, and no other symptoms whatsoever. Hives? How long do they last?
Hives / Urticaria: It's impossible to diagnose a rash from a short description. Hives generally itch quite a bit, and they are raised like mosquito bites, so you can feel definite bumps when you rub the skin. Under the breasts, it may be more likely to be a heat rash or mild Candida. Those rashes aren't always itchy. If it was previously itchy and IS hives, it resolves in a few hours and the skin looks perfect. ...Read more
