You are tired of scratching those red and white raised patches which have appeared almost all over your body, all of a sudden – and are urgently looking for ways in which you can get some relief. Taking medication may only aggravate the itch you feel.
Instead, you have a better option in Natural Therapy, by which you can use natural substances available readily in your own home, to reduce the problem and get instant relief. The condition you are suffering from is known as Urticaria.
Another name for it is Hives. There is no need to see a doctor – the problem is not life-threatening, and can be effectively and inexpensively treated at home :
Urticaria is a form of rash which can appear in any part of the body, sometimes all over the body, in the form of raised red or white patches, which are extremely itchy and cause a burning sensation on the skin. Some patches are tiny, yet others can be as large as a five-rupee coin.
You have no option but to scratch, and that makes matters only worse. In severe cases, the affected person may even feel feverish and nauseous.
Sometimes they subside in one part of the body, only to appear in another. The entire eruption may take 2-3 days to a week to entirely reduce.
There could be many causes for the outbreak of Urticaria. Allergy to some of the everyday foods we eat, such as tomatoes, strawberries, dairy products, chocolates, eggs, oats, or wheat, can bring about this problem.
In other cases, the ingestion of certain medications such as penicillin could be responsible. Extremes of cold and hot environments can be a reason.
Also, it can occur immediately after one exercises intensely when the body warms up and sweating occurs.
You can find several effective natural ways in which to cure Urticaria.
