A Unique & Natural Approach to Permanently Treating Chronic Hives/Urticaria
Chronic urticaria is an allergic skin rash that lasts longer than six weeks and in many cases for years. Urticaria or hives, nettle rash, as it is sometimes referred to is often brought on by an allergen which amongst other things may be brought on by pet dander, chemicals and solvents, insect stings and bites, medicine or food intolerances, alcohol.
However the real reason for urticaria attacks, especially chronic urticaria is usually far more complex and in many cases can be directly attributed to an underlying gut infection which makes the body highly sensitive to everyday allergens.
The rash is normally composed of round inflamed areas or oval bumps on the skin, sometimes red in colour and often itchy. They are caused by the release of histamines in the skin which causes the small blood vessels near the skin's surface to leak fluid, hence causing the irritation and swelling consistent with the condition.
Treating chronic urticaria is very difficult as most allergy testing will be inconclusive in many cases, some minor attacks symptoms can be relieved by treating the itching with calamine lotion,. Calamine lotion is a proven way to soothe the skin and decrease itching, however this is no way a cure for urticaria.
Antihistamines taken orally or applied topically are among the most widespread treatment options for such skin disorders, antihistamine can be taken to combat an isolated attack of urticaria (acute urticaria), for cases of chronic urticaria many practitioners prescribe a daily dose to de-sensitize and reduce attacks. This works for some, but not so for others(I'm testament to this)
There is also a wide variety of herbs that can impair histamine production, speeding the recovery time and minimizing itchiness. These include Paeonia and Forsythia extract, which can be found in a variety of dietary supplements. Green tea can help due to it's antihistamine & detoxifying properties.
There are lots of different types of urticaria, all triggered by different things such as solar urticaria which can be brought on by prolonged exposure to sunlight, others can be triggered by extreme temperatures, acute stress, or a sudden increase in body temperature due to exercise or climate even tight clothing.
If you find yourself breaking out in hives or weels and think that you may have chronic urticaria or acute urticaria, you should call your doctor, especially if you have just started taking a new medication or were stung by a bee or other insect.
