I have a mild urticaria, nothing as bad as some fellow forumites have had to put up with, but irritating none the less. It all started when I got an infected insect bite on my leg two years ago, then it spread all over my lower right leg. My GP gave me Fucibet cream and recently, an antihistammine called Ucerax (hdroxyzine). Both the cream and anti-histanine help and after a while it clears up, I take the hydroxyzine every day as I have other allergies too, but if after it clears up I stop the fucibet the urticaria starts again. I've read that fucibet can be bad for your skin long term as it contains a hydrocortisone as well as an anti-bacterial. Maybe what I have isn't urticaria? I don't know.
Any thoughts very welcome
