What could be the cause for itchy red patches all over the body?
Question: my mom, age 59, is getting itchy red patches all over the body that appeared suddenly... making her really uneasy.... what could be the issue?
Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Thanks for the query. She might be suffering from acute urticaria. It is an allergic condition. She might be having allergy to a particular thing like food cloth etc. Its important to find out the exact cause. Treatment can be done with anti histamine like cetrizine and allegra. Also ask her to apply a mild steroid desonide lotion. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
