Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Diagnosis of skin allergy with urticaria is mostly clinical. Skin allergy tests are available. A patch or a prick test with the suspected allergen is done.

Practically substances that are causing this skin allergy can be identified in day to day life and should be avoided.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.

Detailed answer follows.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

If there is significant joint aches associated with skin rash you should contact your doctor for reviewing the diagnosis. There are various other conditions where joint pains and skin rash are associated. Those diagnosis are to be ruled out before a simple skin allergy is considered to be the cause of your problem.

So I suggest you to contact your doctor for a detailed examination and further investigations depending on the examination findings.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

There are several systemic disorders where there is association of joint pains and skin rash. It will be a wild guess work to comment without complete physical examination. I am sorry to mention that I may not be able to comment on any likely diagnosis or differential diagnosis without having a complete examination.

Take care.
