When antihistamines don't provide relief, oral corticosteroids may be prescribed. A biologic drug, omalizumab (Xolair), is also approved to treat chronic hives in those at least 12 years of age. For severe hive or angioedema outbreaks, an injection of epinephrine (adrenaline) or a cortisone medication may be needed.

You can get allergic testing done at a good centre. There after if found allergic to one or two substances then can get relief by immunotherapy. Another option is get total IgE done. If the level is high you will benefit by anti IgE called Omalizumab. This has been recently approved in USA for allergic urticaria.

Hi lybrate-user, Urticaria is a common form of skin allergic reaction and it is unfortunate that we can not find the certain major cause of it so that's why we call it idiopathic. Now coming on to its treatment options- 1 Primary prevention would be to complete avoid aggravating factors like some dietary habits, alcohol, heat, mental stress and friction area. 2 Antihistamines like cetrizine Leukotriene receptor antagonists 3 Steroids like prednisolone 4Sulfasalazine and a host of immunosuppressives like methotrexate, cyclosporine, omalizumab etc. 5. Avoid Aspirin and any NSAID or you can say painkillers as they may be harmful.

Hello all, I have cough from 4 days. As I remember it started when I start milk with heavy cream. So, please tell me i'm right it is because of milk. Also it is not first time that I have cough. Approx 10 to 11 months ago I have also cough. I have been checked up and in report there was nothing except dust allergy.

You could also try milk without cream as the cream tends to form a layer in the throat which could then cause irritation

I am suffering from higher Ige levels in my blood and having severe itching and blemished skin on my whole body.

I am suffering from higher Ige levels in my blood and having severe itching and blemished skin on my whole body.
The normal IgE levels fall below 100. Any level above 500 is higher and is suggestive of allergy or parasitic infection. She is currently having abnormally high levels. Her symptoms are suggestive of atopic or allergic dermatitis. It is usually seen secondary to exposure to allergen and subsequent reaction is mediated by IgE antibodies. Her body is known to hypersensitive to certain things. Stinging insects, Aeroallergens (uncommon), Foods and additives like Milk, egg, peanuts, nuts, soy, and wheat are the most common agents to cause such allergic manifestations. Measures for her to reduce IgE levels are- - The triggering factor should be identified and should be avoided. Even a skin allergy test can be useful. - Prompt treatment with anti histamines and glucorticoids during allergic attack. - New intervention has come up which you can discuss with your doctor, i.e. Anti- IgE (omalizumab) and is promising. I suggest you to consult to a skin specialist/ immunologist for further steps of management. Take care and regards.

Inhaled corticosteroids are the standard treatment for asthma. If taken properly, there are negligible side effects.
