How to Treat Urticaria

Many people suffering from urticaria question how to treat urticaria. Many people think that it is impossible; however, it is possible to find relief. Though it can be difficult to get rid of urticaria, if you follow the steps mentioned in this article, you can find relief for your skin problems. I will discuss the different types of treatments according to different types of urticaria, such as papular urticaria treatment, idiopathic urticaria treatment, etc. and explain how to treat urticaria.

Urticaria Treatment

In some cases, one specific antihistamine may not have any effect on the patient. If this happens, you should try alternate antihistamines. However, to measure the effect of an antihistamine, you should use it for at least two weeks continuously. Sometimes, the rashes may vanish upon using antihistamines and reappear after some time. This happens because people stop using the medication when the symptoms disappear. To prevent the rash and itching from appearing again, you should use the antihistamine on a daily basis. Older antihistamines may cause drowsiness and should only be taken just before going to bed. However, modern antihistamines do not have this effect and can be used anytime.

For curing cholinergic urticaria, antihistamines that have cetirizine as a major component are very helpful. Ketotifen is effective for patients suffering from both cholinergic urticaria and cold urticaria. Danazol elevates antichymotrypsin levels; therefore, patients can benefit from using it.  Ultraviolet light has also been effective for some patients with cholinergic urticaria.

Second generation antihistamines are considered to be the best choice for idiopathic urticaria treatment. These antihistamines include desloratadine, fexofenadine, levocetirizine, and loratadine.

If the patient drinks nettle tea, it may relieve his throat. This tea can be made by stirring 2 teaspoons of powdered nettles into a cup of hot water and adding honey. Fresh lemon juice can be used if honey is not available.  Patients can also apply calamine lotion on the affected area for soothing relief. Aloe vera gel and vitamin E oil have also been used to counter the effects of urticaria. Another way to relieve the itch is by bathing or dipping the affected area in warm water containing 1/2 cup cornstarch and 1/2 cup baking soda.
