Long shot, If you do/did suffer from this have you found a cure or what was the cure?

(Ive been on 7 drugs including steroids and nothing works)

Cheers

Hi, i get something similar though not as severe as yours from exposure to sunlight sometimes, i found the only thing that helps is benadryl (sp) antihistamines but it takes a few weeks to clear it up, i have to take them all summer to try and prevent it

sorry i dont have a definitive cure for you :-(
hope you find something that helps,
Bev

Hello, ah thats called solar urticaria. Along the same line as cholinergic apart from mines a reaction to heat. Thants for the recommendation for benadryl, afraid ive already tried that and it didn't work. Summers awful for me too, can hardly go out and if i do I get itchy and stared at by people wondering what the dots are on my skin :p. Thanks for the help though - really appreciate it :thumbsup:

To be honest, for anything else I would never think about posting on HUKD however, as cures are far and few between and I've had Dr's saying to me theirs nothing else they can do, I resort to trying to find cures myself.

Does calamine lotion help? perhaps if it's itchy at night?

Cheers, for your input I've tried calamine lotion before and it hasn't helped much. I'm seeing a dermatologist again next week so im going to try and press for some lotion that I can use to sooth it however the dermatologists don't seem to have many creams that can help it :x
