Protect Yourself From Allergies

Keep rooms dry

Use an exhaust fan in bathrooms, laundry rooms after every use to reduce mold. Keep a dehumidifier in the basement and remember to clean and empty it as it collects all the moisture. Check frequently the areas where moisture and mold develops, under the sinks, leaky faucets or pipes, even your fish tank. Once a week wipe dry around the sink, bathtub and toilet, use a plastic shower curtain that can be washed as often as needed. Keep the bathroom door open or open slightly a window. Rooms must be kept dry and Do not overwater your indoor plants.

Pets

It is not your cat or dog you are allergic to, but to proteins found in the animal’s fur, saliva dander and urine. So keep your loving pet away from your bedroom or even better outdoors if that is possible. Have your pet groomed everyday preferably outside. Use a damp pet brush or comb to trap dander.

Furniture

Be careful of what you bring into the house. Non-washable curtains, upholstered furniture and wall-to-wall carpeting are all collectors of dust mites and mold. You may want to consider hardwood floors or tiles as they do not collect dander, a washable curtain or shades or just keep your windows bare.

Get Rid of Utricaria

Acute and chronic utricaria. In order to understand how this severe allergy can be avoided, it is important to learn about the disease itself. Acute Utricaria: The size of these red welts or blotches on the skin may vary from a few millimeters to inches or the size of a fist. Utricaria can affect any part of the body and the span of this rash or allergy can be 24 hours and sometimes it could be more if the skin is sensitive or proper measures are not taken to prevent it.

Chronic Utricaria is a term used to describe hives which last longer than six weeks. This rash is very rare and 1 in every 1000 people develops this rash at some point of their life. Women are more prone to it as compared to men. This kind of rash lasts for months with dormant periods in between. It is not triggered by external factors like environment or climate but food products like caffeine and alcohol along with extreme emotional stress and prolonged pressure on the skin caused by tight cloths and painkillers are some major contributors. Many diseases like HIV or other autoimmune diseases also cause Hives. Proper medicine prescribed by the doctor is the best way to deal with it.

Any trigger, external or internal can lead to excessive release of the chemical, histamine in the skin which cause the blood fluid to leak from the blood vessels and spread under the skin to create weals. The blood vessels dilate around the weals and lead to flares on the surface of the skin. The trigger can be anything from an air pollutant or food like peanut, sushi, dairy products, shellfish and many others. Allergic reaction to medicines Reaction of skin to external environment like chemicals, rain, dust particles etc. Stress and pressure of work, emotions and feelings, Infections that are caused by other diseases, Animals and insects also take a huge part in triggering it. Sometimes animal’s saliva and insect bites are major participants.

There are many allergies that occur due to various reasons that could be environmental or climatic but when you see an allergy starting and you suspect that it is Utricaria then the first step you should do is to take a shower and change your clothes. The shower will help you get rid of all the germs or triggers of allergy that might still be adhering to your skin while changing clothes will also protect you from further spreading it to other body parts through contact.

The triggers occur in two forms that are found in cold environment and warm environment. When a person gets infected with this form of allergy in a cold environment then to stop its spread to other areas of the body you should use warm water for treatment on the infected area. Similarly when the infection occurs on the skin in warm environment then it is better to wash it and treat it with cold water and ice. These kinds of hot and cold treatment will not only stop further spread of the disease but will also help decrease the itching and uncomfortable feeling.

What are the homes remedies that can help you get rid of Utricaria?

There are many cures for this allergy and some of them might seem awkward to you but many of them are really effective because of natural active ingredients that are present in them.

Oatmeal is one of the best and readily accessible forms of home remedies. Try to find oatmeal that is found in powdered form so that it can dissolve in water easily and take a bath in oatmeal mixture for about 30 minutes. Oatmeal works great for dry and rough skin by soothing the inflamed areas. It also heals the skin really fast and removes dirt and debris from it.

Fish skin oil is another effective solution and it has no side effects whatsoever. This oil is available in the form of capsules and is rich in Omega-3 and Vitamin E which are known for their healing properties. Baking soda and apple vinegar are also very helpful. Some hives are acidic in nature so to apply something basic on it like the paste of baking soda will stop the allergy immediately. Similarly some forms of Utricaria are alkaline in nature and baking soda will not help in such cases. So apple vinegar is the best option as it will neutralize it.Natural green tea is used by people who get hives caused by emotional stress and work anxiety. Tealeaves contain anti-oxidants which remove free radicals and disease causing agents in the blood. Thus, green tea is a great deterrent towards skin inflammatory diseases like Hives.
