Dear lybrate-user ji, it may be urticaria. Urticaria is a common skin rash that results due to several factors, such as stress, consumption of certain foods, certain medications, and various infections. It causes big, red, itchy rashes that affect your skin causing discomforts. Anti-histamines offer symptomatic relief from urticaria. However, they work superficially, without addressing or correcting the underlying immunity problem. So, the effect of antihistamine stays for a short period of eight to ten hours; and you need it almost daily. Homeopathy treats urticaria in two phases. In the first phase, the acute episode of urticaria is treated. In the second phase, these medicines treat the chronic tendency towards urticaria. I suggest you to take an appointment for consultation so that detail case can be discussed and rule out the cause and proceed further for treatment. You can consult me online. Thank you.
