Nothing is helping, what the heck is this?
I have a drs appt with the dermatologist next week. But I’m literally at my Whitt’s end with this. I don’t know what to ask at this point. Or what I’m even dealing with. I feel like I have hells itch basically. My skin literally crawls. I dread taking a shower because I know I will be itchy. It doesn’t matter what soap I use. Or the temp of the water. Nothing is helping 😞 what the heck is this?
I can’t find my other pictures but my skin welts and I have a ton of hives all over my legs arms and face.
Don’t use soap and as Luke warm water.
Sometimes a bath in baking soda or oats help x

Hi I’m new here but straight away your story rings with me. My chronic urticaria is caused by pressure and vibration on my skin. Wondering if the shower force is doing this to you? Xx
I have had a return of the hives. I am trying to do more of an antihistamine diet. I have given up caffeine. I used to drink unsweetened tea all the time. I am trying to give up chocolate too. Yesterday I was pretty hive free using some stinging nettle root.

See an Allergist!
See an Allergist Dermatologist will give you the run around.
PT-Phat Tran my Dermatologist gave me 3 prescriptions that cleared mine up. I only get an odd hive here and there. Antihistamines and histamine blocker.
Barbara Hanna you lucky – my son saw 4 different dermatologists – no Bruno
For immediate comfort try Zyrtec and Omeprozole twice daily
Could try a 1 week celery juice diet MiraLax once daily as you might have leaky gut syndrome Google low histamine foods and know exactly what you are eating
Thank you everyone on!!! Will definitely try a few thing mentioned above
Cool baths/showers. Hot baths release histamines. Also found this lotion the other day and it saved my skin. Doesn’t alleviate all itch, but I was able to sit still for a while with it.
When mine were terrible I made ice packs with baggies to go with the ones I bought. Wrapped in thin dish cloths and placed on worse places. I got 3 prescriptions from a dermatologist and some steroid cream from my allergist. I don’t have more than a couple here and there now. Fantastic.
Move the ice packs around. Only 15 min per spot at one time.
Don’t waste ur time at the derm go see an immunologist

This looks like what I have. Aquagenic urticaria (water induced hives) and dermatographism (when you scratch, it triggers the lines that welt up, which are also a form of hives). I shower every other night and use bath wipes in between. The bath wipes work well as long as I’m careful not to put too much pressure and to blot dry as I go along. Sorry you’re so miserable. It’s best to be seen by an allergist or immunologist if you’ve had them for more than 6 weeks, it’s likely they’ll diagnose you with chronic spontaneous urticaria and start you on a combination of antihistamines and antacids.
Julia Zuniga Mendez Just got diagnosed with it today!
