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.
