Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Delayed pressure urticaria occurs when urticaria develops at sites of pressure within 4-6 hours of pressure application, Best for her is to wear loose clothing and avoid tight straps, heavy bags on shoulder, belt etc. Good medicines are available to help in relief like NSAIDs, Oral steroids, Colchicine. Around 25-50% patients in one study have shown to be cured of this disease in 5 -10 years. Be hopeful. Give her good diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables. Let her not stress. She should exercise everyday and be fit.
