Hello everyone. Like many of you, I was struggling with this and decreased quality of life (and bordering temporary madness at times when it was at its worst on busy trains). exercise did it. Stress did it. I’d almost feel the sensation just attack my back, and I’d know soon the nerves would flare up and the little red dots would be coming.
Antihistamines didn’t seem to help much, UNTIL in 2018 my doctor recommended Bilastine (Blexten). This has been a game-changer for me. I just installed my daughter’s car seat and the stress and exercise of it would have not it on brutally.
Instead I was able to feel small amounts of sweat and barely any itch. I checked my skin and no hives! I haven’t tested it for running or anything too intensive yet but so far so good.
This drug is specially made for urticaria, and it’s new. I felt I owed it to all suffering to share this and ask their doctors about it. It’s different than the other stuff.
