Brief Answer:
urticaria, details required

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
Probably you are suffering from an allergic condition called as urticaria.
Sunlight might be the initiating factor for this.
Do you still have the lesion?
If yes please upload a photograph.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis.
Also I would like to know, what all treatment you have taken in past.
Waiting for your response.
Thank you

2 times i had taken treatment from doctor. first time, they had given tablets like "B-complex, cetrizine ". I used those medicines for 2months but no result.
second time, they had taken blood for blood test and said hemoglobin percentage was less so you should used iron tablets and calamine lotion ,along with tablets, which i used before.
i took this treatment 5 months back, still no result.

Brief Answer:
steroids may help you

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX
In chronic and severe itching, steroids act the best.
You can take tablet prednisolone.
However steroids are prescription drugs and you must XXXXXXX a doctor to get them prescribed.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.

Brief Answer:
diet control required

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Diet is definitely a cause of urticaria.
However there is no particular food which can cause urticaria.
It is totally on individual basis.
Try no notice whether you get these lesions more after taking a particular food like a particular vegetable, curd etc.
This will surely help you.
Thank you
