In this blog, I’m going to tell you how I got rid of my chronic hives using some simple home remedies. Chronic hives or urticaria as it is called medically can be extremely annoying for the sufferer. No matter how hard you try, and no matter how many ointments you apply, it just won’t go away. It becomes a frustrating task trying to live a normal life when your body fails you now and then by letting you down with those burning red patches across your skin. And you are left feeling completely helpless and exposed in front of the world. The worst thing about chronic hives is that they can come and go at any time regardless of what you do to get rid of them.
How to Get Rid of Chronic Hives?
Chronic hives, also known as chronic urticaria, are a skin condition that causes itchy and swollen red bumps on the skin. They’re often described as being like mosquito bites or an allergic reaction to food or an insect bite.
The bumps usually appear in clusters on the arms and legs but can also appear on other parts of your body. They are usually not painful unless they become infected.
Symptoms vary from person to person and include itching, burning or tingling around the affected area; a rash of small red bumps that may be visible or feel like sandpaper; the skin around the affected area may swell up; and some people have hives all over their body at once (generalized).
It’s hard to know what causes chronic hives, but there are several different treatments that can help you get rid of your hives for good.
1) Find out what triggers your hives
2) Take steps to avoid triggering factors
3) Use medication to control your symptoms
In most cases, chronic hives go away within a few weeks without any treatment. However, if you experience symptoms for more than 6 weeks, you should see your doctor for further evaluation since there are many possible reasons for chronic hives such as: allergies; stress; medications; infections/inflammation in your body (e.g., from a virus); hormonal changes in women during pregnancy or menstrual cycle; thyroid problems; cancer; drugs used to treat cancer (chemotherapy); high blood pressure (hypertension)
