Hi XXXXXXX,
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

Urticaria is an allergic reaction to to some allergen.
Let me know the site of affected skin; whether it is localized or affecting whole body.
Above mentioned prescribed medicine are appropriate and just to get relief from itching and red patches.

You should consult with allergy specialist and should go for allergy test.
If this urticaria is generalized (involving whole body) then it may be because of edibles/ soap/ cream/ powder/ cloth.
In all these cases, whole body is exposed to allergen.
You have to note down your daily activities along with all dietary ingredients and applied cosmetics.
In this way, you can recognize the culprit agent causing urticaria.
Although persistent medicine intake is painful, but you have to take medicines for control of symptoms.
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

I've been watching my blood pressure. Sometime its normal, sometime not. My pulse also is doing that. This reading is 137/84 and pulse is 45. I was just wondering how lower your pulse can go and be okay? Reading earlier was 139/76 and pulse 110. One of my high ones was 133/94 and pulse 46. I have been taking prednesone since yesterday in a tapering dose due to an unknown allergic reaction under my eyes/swelling. But my blood pressure has been doing the high/normal stuff for some time.

Hi,



My bday party is Saturday, 11/6/10; however, 11/3/10, I had a severe allergic reaction to nuts. I was given steroids, pepcid and benadryl at hospital. I was sent home with 40 mg of prednisone 2x a day or 4 days, 40 mg of pepcid 2 x a day and benadryl 25 - 50mg every 4 - 6 hours. I went to allergist who gave me a script to ween off prednisone. For 11/5/10 - 30mg, 11/6/10 - 20mg, 11/7/10 - 10mg, 11/8/10 - 5mg (end). My question, the "caution category" on the prescription info sheet doesn't indicate if I could consume a glass (or two) of wine on 11/6/10; is it safe to consume 1 or 2 glasses of wine on 11/6/10?
