Brief Answer:
Ecxlude causes of allergy, can continue with Cetrizine for a long time

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have gone through your complaints as well as reviewed the attached photograph.
You seem to be having urticaria which is an allergic reaction of the skin.
It has multiple causes like infections, food allergies, drugs, autoimmune, thyroid diseases and in one third of the cases occurs without any cause.
I would recommend you to undergo certain tests to find out the cause of this allergy.
The tests are complete blood count, absolute eosinophil count, thyroid function tests, anti TPO levels. serum IgE levels, urine routine examination and stool examination to rule out ova and cysts.
These might help in finding out cause of your allergy.
Moreover you can continue with Cetrizine tablet for allergy.
It is absolutely safe drug to take this drug for a long time.
