Hello there,

Sorry to hear about your daughter in law. I too suffer with Chronic Uticaria for the past 15 years but I didnt know how to treat it until 3 years ago. I was on Cetirizine tablets 10mg x 2 aday, but was not very effective. After attending an Allergy Clinci in Cambridge – they have put me on a combination of 2 tablets to see if they work. Fexofenadine tablets 180mg x aday plus Cimetidine tablets 400mg x 2 aday. So far I do not notice much difference as it has only been 2 weeks. But I do understand your how your daughter in law must feel as my face swells up red and very sore and painful – it really is a terrible problem. I am sure this is also very frustrating for you. It is hard to get to the bottom of this problem. I have found that alot of certain food stuffs such as wheat,dairy,sugar,alchol and caffeine irritated the skin and made it worse. I now try to avoid these food stuffs. It would be good if your daughter in law could be refered to an Allery Clinic. I hope I have been of some use. Feel free to contact me.

Kimberley.
