Uticarial Rash

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have had cronic uticaria for at least 5 years. I tweezed 3 eyebrow hairs today and here it comes again. My eyes and fase will be blown up for the next week, give or take.... Sometimes I'm covered head to feet and have no idea why. I have had aleregy tests done with no positive results. Can anyone give me a possible reason? I am so stressed and depressed.

      Most chronic hives are due to a underlying condition from what I've learned and experienced in my case. Things I suggest you rule out are thyroid disease, H- phylori in gutt, of course your usual allergy tests food etc...

      if all negative, have your immunology tested. Possibly you have chronic autoimmune Uritca??? Just some ideas... good luck! Wish you well!

      Thanks!! Not sure if she tested for H-phylori only that gluten was negative. Next timeI have health insurance I'll make sure to ask. Rhumatologyst said she saw some  autoammune problems in my blood test but nothing specific. ?? Then I lost my insurance. So I'm on hold with doctors for a bit. Thank you!!!

    The first time I had chronic urticaria and dermographism it lasted for well over five years, there does not seem to be an absolute reason - if there was one it would have been issued by now. And now I have pressure urticaria which I am told is one of the worst to treat and understand when it is likely to go. Speak to your docctor about your stress and depression about it, for sure they will make your urticaria seem worse.

      Yes pressure hives are bad! Mine started that way , couldn't even wear shoes. I'm sorry you feel so bad. I did start eaten gluten free, and it did calm down my flareups. I'm not allergic to it, but there's some connection there. Something you can try if you havnt? Wishing you well!

      Thank you Julia! I never tried it because they told me also "I was negative" but I will try it now. I just read it could have somthing to do with the carbs turning into sugar and yeast overgroeth in gut...Candida (bad bacteria) and not enough good bacteria.... They recomend what you said: Go Gluten free plus no sugar, eat some fermented and anti inflamitory foods and take probiotics. That's alot!!!! redface? But after 5 yrs. I'll try my best. Wishing you well also!!

      Yes I eat no sweets, pretty much gluten free, on probiotics, and even thou I have my days, my flateups and inflammation is way down now! Took a good month to get it calmed down after months of everyday. So I'm sticking with it! And on the bright side I've lost 20lbs!
