Urticaria is a dermatological disease that is also called urticaria. It is characterized by itching and the presence of red raised rashes on the skin, often with a pale center — urticaria.
There are various treatments for this condition, some of which involve the use of everyday products.
Putting a cup of raw oatmeal in a bath can soothe itching and pain. It is important that the bath has a cool temperature, as warmer water can worsen the symptoms of urticaria and not reduce itching or swelling.
Aloe vera lotion
Aloe vera is a source of vitamin E, which is necessary for human skin for health. Lotions containing this ingredient can also reduce the itching associated with urticaria.
According to some studies, there are dietary supplements that are useful for urticaria. These are vitamins B-12, C and D, as well as fish oil and quercetin. However, the information about them is not final.
Before switching to dietary supplements, it is strongly recommended to consult with a specialist doctor.
After detecting the cause that led to the appearance of urticaria, it is most effective to avoid the corresponding stimulus. The causes of urticaria can be some animals, food, perfumes and many other environmental factors.
Cold wet compresses, as well as wearing loose clothes with a smooth texture are useful when the problem has already appeared.
Other alternative methods
There are other alternative methods that may be useful in some cases when hives appear.
According to some doctors, phototherapy helps to reduce the affected area. However, this method is not effective for all people.
If stress is the cause of urticaria, various relaxation techniques are recommended, such as meditation, and in some cases even hypnosis. It is important to keep in mind that these methods could relieve itching, but they cannot remove the rash that has appeared.
Before starting any type of treatment, it is strongly recommended to consult with a specialist doctor to determine the most appropriate therapeutic method for a particular patient.
