Latest treatment in Australia

Posted , 4 users are following.

Anyone with Urticarial Rash should consider the treatment now used in Australia.

The drug Xolair. It is injected monthly or as direct by the Doctor.

The doctor I am seeing is experiencing 90% reversal of systems.

There is a great deal of information available but in short Xolair works by blocking the process within your body that causes histamine to be released from mast cells.

    I live in France and started Xolair in June after all other treatments proved ineffective. It worked from day one and my dermatologist said she will prescribe it for 2 years, and then start to reduce the dosage gradually after that and see what happens. It's relatively expensive, €362 per dose here in France, £250 in UK.

    I am working in the UK for 6 months and my treatment is not covered under the national health system, so I fly back every 4 weeks to collect my prescription (they won't give me 6 months worth to take to the UK) and I just self administer, (inject in my stomach, it's easy and painless).

    I only suffered months of Urticaria, not years, so I can't even imagine how people put up with this condition for years, I really feel for them. If you can get Xolair then give it a go, you have nothing to lose.

    Hi

    I have taken the xolair shot for over a year and half. I had one breakthru last month which was horrible and it lasted the whole month.. the only thing that helped was prednisone and the dr doesnt know what could have caused it.. now this month I have only had a couple but still get itchy from time to time..
