I have some simple remedies for the itching and chaffing that happens with CIU. Dab very salty water on rash, don't wipe off, keep doing it and the itching will ease if not go. Chaffing wheals caused by rough seams in clothes, arms, inside legs, waistline etc. Sew soft tape or ribbon along seams, alot of work but its worth it. Use silicon based creams or silicon lubricant on these areas to prevent chaffing, it works. I had a course of Ciclosporin (an immune suppressant) over 6mths which put my CIU in remission. I also was prescribed Doxepin (75mgs) which is an anti-depressant but has antihistamine also. CIU leaves you very down and in a bad place. A combination of the above and being careful not to eat too much food that is high in histamine has helped me tremendously - I hope it helps you too. I don't think I'll ever be free of CIU but as it is now I can live with it.
