    Delayed Pressure Urticaria - 2015

    Hi all,

    I wanted to start a thread on Delayed Pressure Urticaria because all the other ones seem to be closed.

    I'm currently on Claritin and Singular (monteleukast).
    It started more than a year ago in April 2014. It started with some harmful over-scratching of little itches here and there and before I knew it I was getting hives.

    It didn't take me long to realize the association with places of pressure.
    Being a doctor myself I pulled out the books and pretty much diagnosed myself.
    Then I went to an Allergy specialist and have been on the meds since then.

    It is more of an auto-immune disease against IgE and other factors, than a true allergy.... but viruses can worsen and start these and many other things as well.
    So sometimes I still wonder if something my cat has, like his chronic herpes conjunctivitis is reacting and inflaming my immune system, even though it can't effect me.
    Specialist says no, however.
    And my sister has Solar Urticaria so it is probably a genetic vulnerability.

    If anyone has tried alternative therapies that work, please share !!
