Lisa Murphy asked a question
Hi, I get rashes on my skin particularly in evenings and more in summers. These are like bumps which come suddenly & settle down after a while after taking cetirizine, other anti- allergic medicines and keep me well for 2 days. I am suffering since last 5 years now. Have had prick tests, blood tests and allergy tests 3 years ago. And all skin experts only were poised to give never ending anti allergens and advised endless courses. Need sane advice?

Sorry to hear about your skin rashes and with the detailed preview you have shared, it is understandable that the itching could get severe at times. From the symptoms, hence, this appears to be urticaria and it could have come from anywhere. And arguably your body is dealing with hyper sensitive allergic reaction to some allergens that could be dust, termite, pets, food items and so on. However, the idea in alternative medicines, per se, homeopathy, the first step is to create defensive mechanism and prepare to fight against possible allergies and agents causing it. Homeopathic medicines work best in most skin allergies by forming a constitutional charter and then prescribing relevant medicines to be consumed over a period of few weeks to months to kill it from the root cause. It is basis the assumption that you are suffering this from last 5 years, therefore, it is suggested that you get yourself an online consultation for a detailed case review and choose at-least a 3 month treatment plan inclusive of medicines to cure this gently but pro-actively.
