Hi! As you see in the title, I am a teen with urticaria, but I mainly believe I have a somewhat mild form of it, as all I get is the “itchy prickly” sensation and not the bumps and red flares all over the body; but it still is really annoying and depressing, as I don’t believe I’m living a life a teen like me should live (like at school).
I can’t get excited for one second without my body getting this itchy prickly sensation, and it starts on my scalp ( t gets really prickly and itchy there) and then goes to my back. I went to a dermatologist and a allergist for this, and my allergist was able to diagnose me with chronic urticaria. She prescribed me Zyrtec.
However, it has shown not to work at all, as I have taken it in the morning when I know I will be outside throughout the day, and I still get the bad sensation, which frustrates me so bad because I never believed that I would have a condition like this so early in my life. I honestly don’t know what to do at this point because if I get nervous or excited within an AC building, I get the sensation, and If I step out in the sun, I also get the sensation.
I just can’t go on with this anymore. I need a solution. I have noticed in past months that when I’m outside, my back does get a little moist and damp as if it’s trying really hard to sweat. So is sweating something that I need to do? But my other issue is the sensation occurring on my scalp. How exactly do I deal with that cuz that’s where it mainly occurs, and it has he worst of it, and it’s really hard to itch since I have a lot of hair as well.
If there is anybody who can give me some sort of answer it would BE GREATLY appreciated.
