Urticaria/ Hives Introduction
Urticaria is very common. It may be said that one in five person gets urticaria once in a lifetime. It is usually self limiting in many cases where no medication is required. In few cases this urticaria is recurrent and severe where it may last for months or even years.
It is commonly called as hives or wheals or nettle rash or pitta in hindi.
Urticarial rash may be present from few seconds to hours or even days.
Urticarial rash is just a symptom showing itself at skin level resulting from allergic or immunological disturbance. Just treating the symptom is not sufficient. We need to treat the cause behind the symptom to eradicate the disease.
Mild urticaria may be caused due use of certain medicines, exposure to sunlight or due to some infection. If the symptoms last for more than six weeks it is termed as chronic urticaria.
Homeopathy is the most effective mode of treatment for chronic and recurrent urticaria.

His main case symptoms are as follows:
He used to get urticarial rash as verticle lines over his back, hands and legs, everyday. There was a lot of itching and redness. He was unable to concentrate in work and was restless to the extreme.
Basically he was a fastidious person who always wanted to have all things to be done in a particular way. His disease was affecting his performance at work.
He consulted a physician who prescribed anti histamine medicines for him. Initially he felt good and all his symptoms were in control till the time he continued medicines. Slowly he required those medicines daily on regular basis. Over a period of time his need for medicines increased and he had to take medicines twice a day which made him drowsy.
He decided to look for alternative treatment and found our website while searching online.
After studying his case details we prescribed for him and 2 months medicines were sent to him by courier. Special instructions were given, not to stop antihistamines immediately. He was advised to slowly reduce the dose of conventional medicines till the time homeopathic medicines shows its action.
At 2 months follow up he was able to reduce his conventional medicines to once in 2-3 days. His symptoms used to come but with less intensity. Itching and redness had reduced by 30 to 40 %.
At 4 months follow up he was happy to state that his dependency on conventional medicines was reduced to minimum. Now he required to take antihistamines once in 8 to 10 days that to when he had junk food. His complaints of urticarial rash was reduced considerably.
