I suffered with Dermographic Urticaria for over 4 years. Allergy specialist gave me medications to help alleviate symptoms. But medication was just covering the symptom and not curing the problem. Then, totally by chance, three months go I decided to stop eating all meats as well as eggs to lower my high LDL cholesterol. I also stopped eating sugar and baked goods to stop progression of diabetes. Instead I increased fruits and vegetables. Two weeks into my new way of eating I realized I no longer have the symptoms so I stopped taking medication for Urticaria. It's been 3 months and I no longer have the problem. Incidentally, I no longer have stomach issues. No need to take PPI such as Nexium for my gastritis either. It seems my new diet fixed my stomach as well!
I have had Dermographic Urticaria for three years and even with daily med Aries it was bad. I believe the onset was due to stress. Did all types of allergy test etc... Nothing came out.
A friend told me stop gluten and I tried it, within a week I was off Aries. I later did celiac disease test and it turned out I don't have it, but I may be sensitive to gluten and the tests for that are not well developed yet. My doctor told me listen to ur body and stop gluten.
I still have outbreaks sometimes when I am stressed or have not been consistent with a gluten green diet but cutting gluten has been a life changer.
I suggest to try cutting gluten.
PLEASE READ THIS - I THINK I HAVE CURED MY CHRONIC IDIOPATHIC URTICARIA
I used to eat sweets everyday - cookies, chocolate, cake, etc. Doctors told me to live on Zyrtec, which works great, but I want a cure, not something to cover the symptoms. I happened upon an article about things in our diets causing inflammation. [email protected]#$ So I started an anti-inflammatory diet. After one week, I really think it is almost gone. Pacific salmon (not farm raised), oatmeal, almonds, flaxseed, walnuts, berries, sweet potatoes, green tea, and 4-8 glasses of water a day. My diet did not consist of just these items, but I ate a serving of at least 2 of these a day. What a difference! Look it up - I hope it helps.
