Treatment Of Hives That Don’t Go Away?
Good afternoon, I have urticaria / hives chronic. I have undergone several stages of treatment since a year ago in my husband’s country from Europe. Because it has been diagnosed chronic, my complaints have reached swelling in the mouth and respiratory tract, nausea, bumps without end fading out again and full throughout the body including the head, and if late taking the drug he is massive. the drugs given to me have not worked, including the antihistamine, the dose has been increased, which makes me drowsy. So I was given a referral to be given injection drugs (Xolair) which was the last thp. Meanwhile, I have to be in Indonesia for a while now, do I need to get xolair injection in Indonesia alone or do I have to go back to Europe for this treatment? Currently, I am still taking antihistamines every day. Please advise. Thanks
Hello Astabali, Thank you for the question.
Experiencing chronic urticaria is not easy because often with medication that has been taken, the symptoms of the sufferer still appear. Hives / urticaria is an allergic skin reaction that causes a white or red skin rash that feels itchy or sore. In addition to hives, other allergic reactions that can appear in someone are swollen eyes, swollen lips, difficulty breathing, palpitations, diarrhea, painful diarrhea, vomiting, fainting. Have you ever found out what causes an allergic reaction in you by doing an allergy test? The most important treatment of allergies is to avoid the causes of allergic reactions because allergies cannot be cured. Existing medication serves to relieve symptoms experienced by sufferers. However, in some cases the cause of this allergy cannot be found. Xolair is a drug trademark containing omalizumab which is used to treat chronic urticaria whose cause is unknown and which cannot be treated only with the use of antihistamines. I am not sure that this drug is available in Indonesia. My advice is that if you really have to be in Indonesia for a certain period of time you should try to contact a large government hospital like RSCM to find out in advance if this drug is available in Indonesia. If it is not available, then it is best for you of course to get this medicine in a foreign country that does have this medicine.
Hope this information helps you.
