Does anyone else suffer from urticaria also known as hives?

Recommended Posts

Ever since i got the hsv2 my skin is SO itchy most of the time and i get wheals like welts. I diagnosed myself with urticaria and the demertogist found no allergies linked to the itching. It can be subsided with allergy medicine and cortisone , but i hate taking that everyday 🙄 i read somewhere people with herpes developed urticaria, but im not sure how true that is? If you struggle with this too, what are your remedies?

Yes, experienced it as well.

It only lasted a few hours or less and always went away after a shower or it showed up and past quickly.

i just took benedryl every now and then, never daily as I usually dealt with it. It was brought on whenever I was warm.

I have symptoms what you described. What is this and how is it related to HSV? I have joined another support FB group and I am constantly told that what I am exprienceing (welts in various spots, itching etc) is not related to my HSV 2 but there is no way it isn't!
