Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
You might have developed acute urticaria.
It is an allergic condition.
The allergy might be due to any food product or any particular cloth you wear.
Even deodorant or soaps can cause allergy.
It is very difficult to dedicate one cause but if you try to notice you might be able to find out the cause.
I treat such cases with a combination of an antihistamine tablet like cetrizine and a mast cell stabilizer like monterlukast.
One tablet daily of this combination for a month works well.
You can try this.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.

I was wondering if I could have mast cell activation syndrome -mastocytosis came back negative. I have had severe allergies all my life, but I was never tested to see what I was allergic to. 16 months ago I became very sick when our 4th cat came to live with us. My ige was 253-normal is less than 114. I am allergic to 10 things, and cats were off the chart. My symptoms are facial flushing, itchy skin, dizziness, tachycardia, stomach pain with diarrhea, headache, muscle cramps, and chest pain and tightness when exposed to animal dander. And smells bother me also that never did before. I had to get my own apartment. Any help please
