Whitish, itchy, bumpy Idiopathic hives turn flat & red after taking antihistamine. Is that normal? Maybe problems with mast cells / blood vessels?

Whitish, itchy, bumpy Idiopathic hives turn flat & red after taking antihistamine. Is that normal? Maybe problems with mast cells / blood vessels?

Yes and no: Hives can at times behave this way but if you only have hives then it is unlikely that your problem is a mast cell disorder.

I have burst a blood vessel in the middle finger of my right hand twice now in the same month. It starts out as an itchy feeling and ends up purple.

This is often: an elusive symptom. It actually tends to occur more in women and is sometimes associated with the connective tissue syndrome Raynaud's disease.

The veins in my wrist are extremely itchy. Why; some sort of allergy?

The veins in my wrist are extremely itchy. Why; some sort of allergy?

Dry skin: My guess - pure guess - is that the skin overlying your veins itch - likely due to dry skin. "allergic" involvement of veins - actually immunologic involvement of veins is called vasculitis. The symptoms are bruising, burning & possibly pain. But this is another question that is hard to answer on healthnet. You are going to have to see your physician for this one. ...Read more
