I haven’t been diagnosed with DPU (don’t think my doctor know what that is) but I do have outbreaks after certain pressures.
26 years of chronic idiopathic urticria ( the chronic has subsided) should qualify me for this site.
I haven’t been posting for a number of years. Funny but I’ve been thinking about getting back into it.
Neat that you have contacted me. I’m happy to join your room(s). Thanks for asking me in.
I am an almost recovered long term anxiety sufferer having undergone a VERY successfull CBT course . If I can help or encourage anyone else towards recovery I certainly will
I dont get lots of time to be online due to my part time business commitments
I have also been an urticaria sufferer along the way and have received valuable help from forums and informal contact
Communication is always an effective part of anyones recovery
My name is Carmen. I have a sixteen year old daughter that developed Urticaria Pigmentosa when she was about 3 months old. It has pretty much cleared up, but she is having other skin problems that might or might not be associated with U.P.
My son at age 12 started to break out in hives while swimming and after some reserch I thought it might be Urticaria. I would like to find out as much as I can.
hi i’m heather and i am looking for any advice on this matter, as far as prevention when i am outdoors. thanks
I have what appears to be hives on my stomach, very top of thighs and between my breasts. I have had them for over a week with no response to topical treatment (hydrocortisone cream, caladryl clear, corn starch powder, solarcaine, etc. etc. etc. I’ve tried anything I can think of). I recently went to the doctor who diagnosed contact dermatitis, saying I’ve all of the sudden become allergic to the laundry detergent I’ve been using for quite some time. I had a steroid shot and put on prednisone, but so far no releif.
For the last couple of months I have experienced itchy red welts that will flare up, and then fade within a day or so, leaving small bruises. I have also experienced various localized swellings, such as my upper lip, part of my face, the top of my forearm, or the back of my hand. I am 53, in good shape physically, and have never experienced anything like this.
This is the second time in my life that I have experienced hives. Last time they lasted for two years. This is causing major depression.
hello I am here to find out more about this because I have hives on my face!!

My husband (not computer savvy) suffers from giant hives and we are trying to figure out the cause. I’d like to pick the brain and compare symptoms with others who have the same ailment.
I have been troubled by urticaria, chronic hives that itch a great deal. My dermatologist has prescribed Sarna cream with or without a steroid additive, hydroxizine (Atarax), and Doxepin. What I have found about Doxepin is that it is mainly an anti-depressant. What does it have to do with urticaria?
I am looking for others who exhibit same symptoms who perhaps can offer some ideas for relief.
My son was just diagnosed with angioedema and ideopathic urticaria but is still suffering with extensive hives after a week of being on Prednisone, Allegra and Benadryl. His Allergist keeps telling me to wait it out. I’ve given him oatmeal baths and bought five different creams but nothing works. Help!
Hi everyone. I just diagnosed my daughter on my own the other night with Cold Urticaria. She started with symptoms last year and pediatrician didn’t look into it and just suggested it was a reaction to the chlorine in our pool…wrong. Symptoms are worse this year and I was desperate. I’m going to call her tomorrow and have her refer me to a pediatric allergist. She has all the listed symptoms and I feel relieved now knowing what it is and what the dangers are. I would like to connect with others who have children going through the same thing or who themselves have it.
Hello everyone. I have autoimmune related chronic urticaria as well as a few other autoimmune diseases: Graves disease (now hypothyroid from excision) and Vitiligo. I’ve had 2 major flares of the urticaria that caused me to need a medical leave of absence from work till I weaned off the incredibly high doses of Prednisone and other meds I was on. I often search for new research or discoveries in trying to cure or control these conditions and also to compare notes on treatments. I also like to exchange the names of doctors that actually listen to their patients and take the time to do the needed research to help me and others like me.
This is my second bout with chronic hives. The first one lasting 3-4 yrs. Now for about 1 week. I just want more information that may lesson my symptoms and duration ofhe hives
