where to go from here?

For those who know me I havent been on here for a long time,Apart from my FMS and other ailments,I now have  Uticaria and angeodema I am going insane from the itch daily and at times is goes beyond that and it becomes very painful,has anyone had this before,the docs say take antihistermines as thats all there is. If you know of anything that can relive it I would be greatful to hear from you.I have tried many home remedies,chinese herbal,and an array of lotions and potions,but maybe I have missed something along the way.

Hi Kitty,

You have been MISSED!!! ..... As has your keen sense of humor! I am glad you found your way back to us.... but so sorry to hear about your new painful and frustrating diagnosis.

I am going to suggest that you also post in our Dermatology Forum. I am sure you know how to locate it. If not give me a shout and I will help.

From a trusted web-site: "Angioedema is classified as either acquired or hereditary. Acquired angioedema is usually caused by allergy and occurs together with other allergic symptoms and urticaria. It can also happen as a side-effect to certain medications, particularly ACE inhibitors."

Has your Physician determined the cause of your Angioedema? .... and Urticaria? I hope this is a short term problem!

Have you tried Baking Soda and Calamine Lotion? Even bathing is Baking Soda seems to help some ppl. Has your Physician ordered a burst of Steroids? It would seem that might be helpful unless it's contraindicated. Have you tried steroid creams?  Some treatments include, topical and systemic antihistamines, corticosteroids, local anesthetics, and topical immunomodulators

Itiching (Pruritis) can feels like it will drive you insane and my heart goes out to you!!! Please, again I encourage you to try our Dermatatology Forum. I am hopeful they will have better and more suggestions. And Please keep in touch! Don't be a stranger. I'll look forward to hearing more from you!

Gentle ((HUGS))
