JyotiK, 2 February 2017 18:44

Hello, I am 46 years old Female. I have Hypothyroid & high blood pressure. I am on medication & is in control. 1.5 years ago suddenly I developed itchy skin & then hives would come. The doctor did all kinds of allergy test, but no allergy to anything. I was asked to take antihistamine & it was in control. 2 weeks ago it flared up where the it feels itchy & prickly all over the body & no medicine is working fully. The doctor has done all blood work, urine & stool test & all came back normal. I am on stronger antihistamine meds, the doctor had given me steroids for a week. But the itchy & prickly skin is still there. even my scalp is itchy too. If I dont take antihistamine, its worse & then hives come. Please help & advise what should I take? Thanks

Doctor's Ayurvedic Advice:-

As your blood reports are normal, you can take Ayurvedic medicines which help to relieve the mentioned symptoms. Please send me the reports to guide you further. Allergic reaction is caused due to the excess histamine that is secreted by the mast cells. These medicines will help to improve your immunity and the resistance to allergic reactions. It must be taken for 3-5months to get a long lasting effect.

Ayurvedic medicines like Amrta rajanyadi kvath - 15ml with 60ml of warm water before food twice daily, Satavari lehyam - 1tsp before food twice daily, Urtiplex Capsules for Urticaria and Haridrakhand can be taken for a month and then reviewed.

Include coriander, fenu greek, mung dal, pepper, snake gourd, turmeric, olive oil and goose berry. Reduce excess meat, sugar, gram flour, brinjal, tomatoes, fish and oil. Taking bath will help to relieve the itching. You can also apply medicated Ayurvedic thailam like Nalpamaradi thailam one hour before bath. Mung dal or green gram powder can be used instead of soap. Please continue with the medications for hypothyroidism and blood pressure.
