Hi there XXXXXXX.
I empathise with your situation &i hear you.
Dermatologists' worldwide are petrified of treating Urticarias..they are a dermatologist's potential graveyard.
The reason is allergy
as a whole has not been fully demystified & is still an evolving subject. Am sure before putting you on these 'shots' the allergist did a series of patch & prick tests to help isolate the antigens or causative factors'. This too is not very accurate. Hence, i always maintain that the patient is the best clinician in cases of allergy. All that can be done is to keep a watchful eye. It is very possible given the locations of your lesions that a 'textile' or undergarment or perfume/deo can be the implicated item. It seems rather localised. It is also possible that stress
or stressors are the precipitating or aggravating factors.
Please do continue with your allergy shots & perhaps add an oral tablet fexofenadine180 that is a non-sedative oral antihistamine for a 2 week period.
Perhaps the help of a clinical psychologist
will help as also a dietitician to help with the weight loss
& develop a more healthy lifestyle (basically yoga
et al that help one relax..lifestyle changes as per your tastes)!
Online we can at best infer & offer you tips to make an informed choice & have done so to the best of my abilities. Do wish your hives
clear away at the earliest & you enjoy continued good health! Cheers & Good luck. Please do follow my advice, close this query (will help give you a sense of closure ;-) & give us a healthy rating if time permits. Good Luck & Godspeed!
