As promised earlier, today I will describe the best medicines, drugs and therapies which will help when wondering How to Treat Urticaria? As a matter of fact, every drug or therapy is suited to a specific sort of urticaria and a correct diagnosis is very important before any treatment. In other words, medicines that are popular for chronic urticaria might not work in the case of physical urticaria.
Oral antihistamines are the most commonly ingested drug for treating urticaria besides certain herbal medicine and Chinese acupuncture.
The first choice should be to take non-sedating antihistamines e.g. Loratadine, Fexofenadine, Cetirizine, Levocetirizine and Desloratadine. In case the symptoms persist, you can take mildly sedating antihistamines e.g. Hydroxyzine, Diphenhydramine and Chlorpheniramine.
For severer cases H1 Antagonists (alone or along with antihistamines), Oral Corticosteroids, Tricyclic Antidepressants and Epinephrine can be ingested.
Now you know about the urticaria medicine, however, there are some drugs which must be avoided. I will be posting about them next.
