I have severe pruritus and urticaria. For more than 2weeks now, causing weals all over my body. More when I wear sweater or after warm bath, in winter.
Cold Urticaria: Cold urticaria or sensitivity to wool can be a cause of your symptoms. These symptoms maybe treated with H1antihistamines (cetirizine etc) and H2 antihistamines (Zantac). Severe symptoms maybe need steroid treatment. Anti inflammatory diet may help as well. See your doctor for appropriate treatment. ...Read more

I pruritus and urticaria with heat in my left ear occur every day and goes with Cetrizine 5mg. CBC & ESR results normal but IgE is little high.
Skin issues: It seems like you are using the appropriate initial medicine, and have blood tests. The next step is another evaluation. Examination definitely, may need to add a topical steroid ointment (medicine applied onto your skin), and if still no relief maybe a skin biopsy. Good luck with finding the answer... ...Read more
Urticaria like spots on chest. Have been there for years. Not itchy or painful, same size and shape always. What could it be?
Not urticaria: Urticaria are very itchy spots fading away in a day often to be replaced with more hives that also last for a day. All allergic rashes itch. Rashes caused by other immune disorders blister or bruise. You likely have a benign disorder if it has been present for many years, has not changed & you are otherwise well. If you can afford a copay a hcp with dermatology expertise may help. ...Read more

Palms, fingers get red, swollen, itchy whenever I hold something cold for more than 30 sec. Can this be related to something other than cold urticaria?
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 got an adverse reaction to advil. Rash all over. Looks like urticaria. I took one 10 mg claritin (loratadine). Can I take another soon after? Painful itchy hives
Yes: If the hives are itchy, you may up the dose of Claritin (loratadine) to 4 x daily but this may cause some drowsiness. Allegra is another option. If the problem gets worse, you will need to see your doctor. Consult an allergist to find out whether you are "sensitive" to all NSAIDs or only to Advil. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unpredictable: Unfortunately this is one of the most difficult if not impossible questions to answer. For hives as a result of a food allergy they should only last a day or 2 as long as the food is not continued. The problem comes in when the underlying source is not clear. Arbitrarily after 6 weeks hives are labeled chronic. The short answer is hives can last minutes to a lifetime. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
