Papular Urticaria - Top 7 Ways To Treat It!

Papular urticaria is a very common reaction to insect bites. It is more commonly seen in youngsters than in grown-ups. Spots with itchy red bumps of 0.2 to 2 cm in width may appear every few days during the summer or autumn months. In some cases, each spot builds up a blister that usually contains liquid.

Despite the fact that the general frequency rate is unknown, papular urticaria has a tendency to occur during spring and summer months. Common symptoms of urticaria can differ from person to person, and as a rule, they tend to create blood red, raised spots on the pores and skin. It creates a bothersome skin sensitivity that may include tiny bumps. Here are a few ways through which you can treat the disease:

  1. Antihistamine: Take an antihistamine solution to lessen the tingling sensation and swelling. Antihistamines that could help in frosty hives are claritin, zyrtec, cyproheptadine, doxepin, ketotifen.
  2. Herbal teas: Herbal teas are additionally very effective in treating papular urticaria. The best home-grown teas to take are parsley or peppermint. These home-grown cures can mitigate the irritation and redness from the skin disease.
  3. Peppermint oilPeppermint oil is best taken orally, as it gives quick relief from papular urticaria.
  4. Staying away from certain foods: Staying from foods that could trigger the disease is important. It is essential that you know about the kinds of foods that could trigger the skin condition. Make a note of the ones you doubt and which ones are causing discomfort to your skin. Also, you can go through 31 food allergy tests to know which ingredients you are allergic to.
  5. Table salt and water: Simply blend table salt with water and drink the mix. This could reduce the skin issue and give it some relief.
  6. Hot and cold packs: Hot and cold packs can help in treating papular urticaria if you apply it on a daily basis to the influenced areas of your skin. Ensure that you use clean towels. It would be better in case you can wash up to lighten the irritation and uneasiness brought on by the skin problem.
  7. Water with turmeric powder: Another simple and straightforward home remedy is mixing water with turmeric powder. Drink a glass of this solution once every day until the side effects begin to vanish.
  8. Essential oils: One of the most famous and successful oils to treat this skin issue is chamomile. Apply the oil to the affected skin range and the irritation and redness of your skin will be at ease.
  9. Topical steroids: Topical steroids in the form of a cream is a prescribed treatment that is instantly beneficial for the influenced skin and when the lesions tend to develop.
  10. Topical soothing agent: Calamine salves and other topical calming lotions are useful in diminishing the irritation.

Tricks To Take Care Of Your Skin In Summer

Tricks To Take Care Of Your Skin In Summer

Every year summers take a toll on the skin. The excessive heat, sun rays, humidity, pollution are extremely harmful for the skin. The summer heat can wreak havoc on your skin leading to dark spots, pigmentation, wrinkles and tanning.  

However just a few simple changes in your everyday skincare regimen can ensure that you have a soft and glowing skin in summer.

Here are a few tips which would help you in protecting your skin this summer.

Hydrate:

During summer your body tends to lose a lot of moisture. So hydrating your skin is extremely important during summer seasons. Drinking lots of water will help to keep your skin soft and moisturised. Body lotions are also extremely useful in hydrating the skin. However the thick lotions which are used in winter are not suitable for summer seasons. They are sticky in nature and lead to a lot of discomfort. Fast absorbing lotions or serums are ideal for hydrating the skin in summer.

Sleep well

About 6 to 8 hours of sleep daily can work wonders in maintaining a soft glowing skin.

Use sunscreen

A good quality sunscreen protects your skin from harmful UV radiation. Choose a sunscreen with SPF 30 (at least) before you go out in the sun. Sunscreen should be applied in the morning, at least half hour before you go out in the sun. It is best to reapply it again in the afternoon.

Protect your eyes and lips:

People often tend to ignore their eyes and lips in summers. Protect your eyes with goggles or eye shades to avoid the harsh sun while going out. Lip balms with SPF 15 are extremely helpful in protecting the lips. They help to keep the lips soft and  prevent chapping and pigmentation of the lips.

Face care:

The hottest hours of the day are generally between 11 am to 4 pm. Avoid stepping out in the sun during these hours. This will help in protecting your skin from the harmful UV radiations. Face wash should always be used during summers. It helps in cleaning the clogged pores and exfoliating the skin. However harsh foaming face wash should be avoided during this season. Mild cleansing lotions provide an exfoliating effect and help in making the skin soft and supple.

Summers in India are quite harsh and lead to a lot of skin problems. However a minimal basic skin care will go a long way in ensuring that we have a soft and glowing skin this summer.

To maintain the skin health and reduce the dry skin condition follow this - 1.Bathe with gentle soaps. If possible use some natural ingredients like gramflour, turmeric mixed with some milk to bathe daily. This does not wash your skin off the natural oils. 2.Keep your bath short and do not use hot water to bathe. Use only lukewarm water. 3.Apply Vitamin E oil or warm olive oil on the body after bathing. You can also use a good moisturiser. 4.Cocoa butter mixed with wheat germ oil is also very good at maintaining the skin health. 5.You can mix some oils like – Sesame, olive, virgin coconut oil, wheat germ oil to apply before going to bed. 6.Consume diet that is rich in vitamin E, omega 3 and 6 and other skin friendly vitamins like vitamin E and A. Eat almonds, walnuts, flaxseeds, sesame seeds to maintain skin health. 7.Keep yourself hydrated. Drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water to keep your skin soft and supple.

Dear Lybrate user. I am sorry that there is no method with which you can reduce the harmful effects of your smoking. Tobacco is addictive. Cigarette also contains 4000+ carcinogenic chemicals other than nicotine. Nicotine and other chemicals can cause cancer of different types and areas. Throat cancer, mouth cancer, lung cancer, stomach cancer and brain problems can result. Over and above smoking may also increase the risk factor of heart attack and brain stroke. Please quit smoking. The best method is to leave it and continue with your will power. There are other methods like Nicotine Replacement therapy and pharmacotherapy combined. If you’re ready to stop smoking and willing to get the support you need, you can recover from nicotine addiction and abuse—no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel. The first step in treating nicotine addiction is accepting that you have a problem. Confronting an addiction and accepting responsibility for your actions isn’t easy. But it’s a necessary step on the road to treatment and recovery. You should then consult a psychiatrist / psychologist who fill follow this treatment. 1. Detoxification using medicines. 2. Behavior modification with the help of therapies. 3. Counseling. 4. Medication to sustain and 5. Long term support. These given steps are essential for any addict to get effectively rid of smoking. Therefore, you need to stick to the treatment plan and cooperate with your psychiatrist / psychologist. Mind power building therapy, motivation therapy etc should help you doing so. Take care.

Vitiligo is a genetic disorder triggered by indigestion and stressful conditions. There is always a confusion in patients mind regarding choosing right treatment approach for vitiligo. Every patient has 3 choices: 1.Allopathy - gives quick results but is not very safe for long term use. 2.Homeopathy- is safe but very slow and in most of cases it can not stop the spread of disease i.e old patches show some recovery but new white patches continue to come even while using the medication. Ayurvedic herbal medicines are used to purify blood and stop the spread of disease and external application are capable of quick repigmentation. We have integrated external Allopathic applications with internal Ayurvedic medication to give fast and long lasting results. For detailed queries like: 1. Causes of vitiligo 2. Is it genetic or can it spread to next generation 3. Causes of spread of disease after it remains stable for some years 4. Should we use homeopathy, allopathy or ayurveda. You can send pictures of the affected area. After reviewing the case.
