I have been suffer for under a year with a sudden unset of Chronic Urticaria. I have noticed the wheals and goosebumps don’t go away, even long after the itchiness and redness have faded. They just stay there leaving my skin looking bumpy as if I have goosebumps from being cold even though that’s not the case.
Is this normal or do I have something else going on? This whole thing is driving me insane.
I spent decades taking great care of my body, never smoked, rarely drank and worked out constantly for decades. This all hit me last year and seemed to go away but then came back in full force. Antihistamines don’t even take the edge off. It hits worse at night and has destroyed my sleeping ability and my happiness in life.
I feel like I am slowly turning into a monster. I had cortisone shots which took away the itchiness for a week but these little bumps remained. Anyone else have this same situation?
