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.

      My triggers are heat, pressure, scratches, water (but especially saltwater) tight clothes, seams, artificial dyes, stress, and latex

      I have sheets that go into the refrigerator and I apply those to my body. It's not comfortable but better than itching. I would love to take a hot shower, but it aggravates everything.

      Oh that’s no fun! Do you do any non-pharm stuff that you’ve found helps?

      I have dermatography which is a systemic response to pressure. I also found Grierson-Gopalan syndrome. Interesting read but unpleasant sensation. I take 4 Zyrtec every day. And 3 h2 antihistamine as well as xoliair injections and still have the itching. I have nearly ruin the skin on my feet.

      I take a non drowsy antihistamine each morning like xyzol. But when my feet do break out in hives I run cold water over them and then elevate them. Then just wait for the itching to subside

      Same here Ellie. My feet itch the worse from wearing shoes and standing what do you do to help the itching?
