I am getting red rashes on my skin when I apply some pressure or when I scratch my skin. They disappear after a few minutes. I consulted a dermatologist, and I am following these medicines. I am taking Allegra 120 mg and Rantac 150 mg. My doctor told me to continue the medication for a while. Do I need to take these medications for a few months? Can I have any side effect after using these medicines for a long duration? What is the reason for having hives? Are these harmful? What is the permanent remedy?

You have urticaria or hives. These medicines are safe, and they can be continued for a while if the problem persists. Hives can happen in response to a food allergen or food preservative, medications, infections, and alcohol. A large number of urticarias are idiopathic. There is no known cause for having it. Urticaria is mainly symptomatic, and it is treated with oral antihistamines.
