Hives (Urticaria)

Hives is an intensely itchy rash of white or yellow wheals (swellings) surrounded by red, inflamed skin. It is usually caused by an allergic reaction to certain foods or medicines, insect bites, or stings. People with hay fever or asthma are more susceptible. Additional triggers that may produce hives include physical factors such as heat, cold, sunlight, water, pressure on the skin, and exercise. Hives can also be caused by stress, or have no obvious cause.

Home Remedies
  • Cilantro: Drink cilantro juice whatever may be the cause of rash. Wash fresh cilantro, chop it into pieces, put it into blender, add 1/3 cup of water, and blend. Drink the juice and apply the pulp to the affected area.
  • Watermelon: Eat watermelon and rub the white part of the rind on skin.
  • Coriander and cumin: Steep 1 teaspoon coriander powder, 1/2 teaspoon cumin, and 1 teaspoon natural sugar in a cup of hot milk. Drink once or twice a day.
  • Sandalwood and turmeric: Make a paste of 2 parts sandalwood powder and 1 part of turmeric mixed in milk and apply this paste to the affected area.
  • Aloe vera: Apply aloe vera gel or vitamin E oil to the affected area at least twice a day.
Do's
  • Apply cool compresses.
  • Take a cool shower to reduce itching and swelling.
  • Wear loose, lightweight clothes made of natural fibers.
  • Add oatmeal oil to lukewarm bath water and soak for 15-20 minutes.
  • Apply calamine lotion for cooling effect.
  • If stress is a contributory factor, try to reduce stress.
Don’ts
