Welcome and thanks for posting your query to Healthcare Magic.
After reading your query it appears that your husband has the problem of "Urticaria".
It is a common condition caused by bursting of allergy
producing cells known as "mast cells". As the chemical inside them is released it produces a rash which you have mentioned. There can be multiple factors producing this condition which are included in day to day life and some times it is really difficult to find one exact cause.
For the betterment kindly follow the suggestions below:
-Apply over the counter calamine
lotion 3-4 times a day.
-You can do cold water compresses to reduce the intensity of itching.
-Do not scratch or rub the skin as it can lead to further aggravation.
-The best measure is to take oral anti histamine
or levocetrizine under medial advise.
- Despite above measures if the problem is not getting better then it is better to consult a dermatologist
for best guidance.
Hope these information will help. If you have any further queries I will be happy to help.
"With good health wishes"
