Hello Swapna.

Thank you for asking at HCM.

I went through your history and would like to make following suggestions to you:

1. Were I treating you, I would prescribe you an antihistamine like fexofenadine/hydroxyzine/cetirizine for 1-2 weeks (depending upon response).
I would also add monteulkast to your treatment.

2. I would also suggest you a course of anti-parasitic drugs as you have a history of travel. Sometimes intestinal worms can cause itching & hives.

3. Personally, I would suggest you to avoid wearing tight-fitting or woolen clothes. Loose-fitting, cotton clothes will be the best option in my opinion.

4. Please avoid activities causing excessive sweating and hot,spicy foods for a few days. It may help.

Hope above suggestions will be helpful to you.

Should you have any other query, please feel free to ask at HCM.

Wish you a fast recovery and the best of the health.

Thank you & Regards.
