Hi, I am a 21 years old women whos been suffering from allergy. Its been 5 to 6 months now that i am carrying this thing in my body. I havent visited to an allergist since. Anytime of the day, I had this tiny pink circles on my body which would later becomes big and bigger, and its actually very itchy. At first it looks like an insect bite then it would turn out big and bigger. I am usually scratching it since its really very itchy. And this thing is very much annyoing.
I sometimes want to cry. the problem is I really doesn't know  if its allergy or what. I took an anti-histamine named 'claritin" which I learned from I friend. This is what i'm taking whenever I experrienced it. And this actually aids me times I have these allergy I called. However, after 2-3 days the thing comes back. I have avoided eating prone to allergy food however, this thing just suddenly pops up on my body again. What will I do?

Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
This looks like urticaria or hives. The swellings or wheals produced after itching can be pale (of skin color) or red. Urticaria is usually triggered by allergens, such as drugs, foods, insect bites, inhaled substances, in response to sunlight, cold, heat, stress, exercise, or a viral infection. Other common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, or cosmetics. Since you experienced an itch, just go over these possibilities in your mind. Something may strike you. In many cases, hives clear up themselves and don’t require diagnosis or treatment. However if they persists you may need to see a specialist called an allergist to determine what is causing the reaction. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Hi there..Thank you for your response.
I find it very informative.
As  of now, I am taking " claritin" whenever I have this. Is this safe?
How can I prevent this from coming back?
It's really hard for me to trace where i am allergic from. Since, there were just times  that
it pops up on my body. More to that when I scratch it, it will scatter, its very itchy.
What are the some ways that I can do to relieve this problem?

I will appreciate your next reply.
