I was trying to find others that have the same skin condition that might be able to give me some tips on how to avoid break outs because my doctor's aren't very helpful

Any luck treating chronic urticaria?
Hi, I’ve been struggling with urticaria since the end of 2021. It’s triggered by heat and pressure for me. Does anyone have ways of dealing with it that work well for you?
Hi, so for the past week I have been itching and breaking out in hives and rashes on my arms, legs and neck areas. I’ve been using Zyrtec allergy meds, it got bad so had to go get a steroid shot. Also been using calamine lotion and coconut oil, which been helping. Not sure it’s an allergy to something or what. Other than meds, is there a natural treatment that would help? Meds always give me bad side effects. It might be an allergic reaction from a bug bite but not sure how long those last.
Started getting hives after the second Covid shot for about three months . And after the booster , and till now. Hives appear randomly on my body mostly legs and arms, mostly at the pm part of the day and disappear morning time. Tried Allegra for couple weeks it didn’t feel any better.
are any of you on Xolair and still on a meds regimen (pepcid complete, claritin/zyrtec and benadryl)? if your going on to the fifth shots like me or far more, do you still have hives pop up or these red stretch mark like marks? When does this stop or what do you do or take to help? I think it could be the season change but maybe it's my body
Hello. My name is Inesse and I was diagnosed with chronic urticaria. Other than meds are there any other treatments you can share with me? How have you had urticaria and what medications do you take? Has it gotten better or same or worse? Thanks for sharing
Does anyone have recommendations of good lotions that don’t trigger more hives? Not really something to treat the hives but just like a good moisturizerizing lotion that feels good and doesn’t react badly with hives but obviously if there is something out there that isn’t too expensive that also helps soothe the skin that would help to know too! I have CIU plus angioedema so if you do too and can help with this please let me know!:)
I’m curious what other’s urticaria triggers are. Mine are pressure, hot or cold, tight clothing, activity/exercise, getting a scratch, and standing in one spot too long.
Mentally, how are you dealing with urticaria?
Hey I’ve been suffering from CIU for about 6.5 years. It’s been a long journey. First I was diagnosed with scabies by a GP and did several painful treatments for that. I then went to an advance derm and found out about CIU. That’s when I tried every med under the sun to no avail. I finally found xolair a few years later and it completely changed my life for the better. My hives are pretty well controlled with monthly xolair but I still have the occasional flare up.
Does anyone else get welts/hives in response to pressure on the skin? They show up minutes after I get brushed or scratched, or along clothing seams, and then disappear anywhere from twenty minutes to an hour later. It’s hard to deal with if I miss my allergy medication because they itch and burn like nobody’s business, and every time I scratch more show up.
Hello! I'm Marsie and this year I was diagnosed with chronic idiopathic urticaria (hives.) It's taken over my life completely, so much to the point that it's disabling because of the swelling in my hands and feet and itching. It can keep me up at night and make it hard for me to walk. I'm looking for other ways to treat it, whether it's lifestyle changes or different medications. How do you deal with chronic hives and what do you recommend?
Hi! I have many allergies but the one I have the most challenge with is getting hives whenever I work out. I’ve never spoken to anyone with this same challenge and feel sometimes like I’m the only one. Looking for new things to try in the hopes to once again work out comfortably. :) looking forward to any help!
