I am 21, i'm female, 4ft 11" and as for my weight well im considered obese even though im not that large. Anyway last year about november time i began getting these itchy episodes they would last for a couple hours and be gone when i took a antihistamine, i then one night ended up in hospital because my mouth swelled up and well its safe to say i was doing my best kylie jennar impression.. I have since carried 2 epi pens with me at all times and been on a course of 1 anti histamine twice a day, however i have been told i can have up to six a day if it gets particuarlly bad. The doctor perscribed me this because i will literally have it every minute of every day and normally the tablets surpress it however lately i have had a infection of the kidney/bladder or a bowel bug and it is breaking through the tablets. 

The last time i went to the allergy clinic i was in so much pain i could not sleep in the two days i had to stop taking the tablet.. It hurts when i itch sometimes it can feel like sunburn.. In the last week i have been put on montelukest and its not helping much the first day it did but it is getting worse.. What i. Wondering is if my immune system is busy fighting something else / not working at full capacity could that be why my urticaria is breaking through?

    Hi 1Nina, I hate that you are going through this spell like the rest of us . At least the antihistamine s works for you , for me they doesn't work at all. Good luck with everything .
