Hello doctor,

I have itching all over the body and different part itch at different time. And whenever it itches skin becomes pink like you can see in the photo attached. Also whenever skin itches I have some pain or movement in the stomach, I also have pain during bowel movements. What is the cause and medication for this and how to prevent it in the future?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Your history and clinical images are more in favor of acute urticaria. It is an immediate kind of skin allergy, and once it starts, it usually tends to last 4 to 6 weeks if appropriately treated. You could even try to identify any possible exacerbating factor. The usual ones are pain killers, flowering plants, pet animals, artificial colored food items, nuts, seafood, cement dust, etc.

You can start taking tablet Allegra 180 mg (Fexofenadine) once daily in the morning, and tablet Teczine 5 mg (Cetirizine) once daily in the evening for three weeks regularly. You can apply Calosoft lotion at sites of itch.
