My little girl has suffered terribly for years with 'chronic urticaria' - the specialist wanted to study the pictures they were so stunned by the aggressive nature of the rash. We've tried all sorts. I want to go private but don't know where to turn. We've seen several NHS 'Consultants' who offer injections that are supposed to help - last ten years they said - it stays away for a while but its back again now - 5 times in less than 10 days. Poor mite couldn't hold a pen in school as her hand was so swollen - she gets a nasty cough which makes her sick at the same time. Can anyone offer any advices - please? It upsets me to see her looking so poorly.

    We cannot find out what triggers it. The docs havn't been able to pin point anything either. We have tried avoiding certain foods, soaps, clothes all sorts and it comes and goes when it feels like. Now she has started getting swelling in the joints of her fingers and knees.
