How To Alleviate The Hassle Of Hives

How To Alleviate The Hassle Of Hives

Is it ever understood to exclaim, when one thing causes you too much annoyance “Does it make me urticaria”? This statement, almost in common use, inevitably brings us back to what hives is, that is, an annoying pathology that affects the skin.

Suddenly our epidermis is filled with itchy ounces that do not give us respite. Unbearable itching and unsightly and annoying red spots.

The causes of urticaria, for the most part – tahini! – (Exactly, who writes has been suffering from this pathology for almost two years!) Are unknown. Exactly as it appears, one day, without any reason, it could go away and never reappear.

The excessive release of histamine then generates these eruptions that are not pleasant to see, nor to bear.

There are some fundamental elements that can trigger it: among the main causes I can certainly point out food allergies, from contact or drugs, but also the bites of insects and mosquitoes and emotional stress.

Among other things, statistically speaking, about 20-40% of people, at least once in their life will find themselves dealing with this annoying pathology. As a rule, however, in most cases, the phenomenon should fall asleep after a couple of days, always if obviously we are facing a case of acute urticaria; if however, for our misfortune, the phenomenon persists beyond six weeks, we are sadly talking about chronic urticaria.

So how do we do if one morning we wake up covered with itchy owls?


  • To relieve the itching, surely the first thing to do is to take antihistamines, which will “block” the release of the histamine. Be careful, however, if you are doing activities that require special concentration; in this case, I remind you that the antihistamine causes drowsiness.
  • Also, I advise you to take cold baths or rub an ice cube on the promo, as the cold, contracting the blood vessels, does not allow the secretion of the histamine. Therefore I advise against the hot water because as you well understand, it will produce exactly the opposite effect.
  • If instead, you have light and small measures, I recommend a hydrocortisone cream to apply to the affected area to relieve itching.
  • Unfortunately, to understand what can provoke it, one must begin to become “investigators” of one’s body. Once the cause has been identified, in addition to avoiding it, we can tackle it by immediately taking an antihistamine.
    Sometimes, for example, the excessive accumulation of stress, can provoke reactions of this kind, and in these cases, I suggest you try to “listen” to your body and try to understand what are the causes that generate in you more anxiety or you can learn from this website musikji.
  • I advise you, however, to undergo tests for allergic tests and food intolerances, as many foods contribute to raising the level of histamine in our body. Next, I leave a list of foods to avoid, when the urticaria should show up.

They are not recommended: tomatoes, chocolate, dried fruit, strawberries, crustaceans, legumes, eggs, cheese (only the seasoned and semi-seasoned ones).

If the urticaria persists for more than a week, the last important advice is to investigate in depth, because, even a badly treated tooth, or a thyroid problem, can lead to the appearance of this unbearable pathology.

How To Cope With Panic Attacks

How To Cope With Panic Attacks

“Sudi first cold, then hot and then very cold. Believe it’s your time; you think death is coming to call you horribly and devastatingly, with no good reason. So, why did you choose yourself? You, alone, on everyone.

You feel like throwing up, crying, screaming, shouting for help. And you can not do any of this. You’re done. You’re alone. You are lost. You do not understand anything anymore. You are about to enter suddenly into a world on the edge of the world.

So you think you’re going crazy. That from that moment on you will be mad. That from that moment on, nobody will be able to understand you anymore. ”

I chose these words, written by Niccolò Agliardi and present in the book “But life is another thing,” written with four hands together with Alessandro Cattelan, to tell you about the panic attacks.

Unfortunately, these days of sudden anxiety and fear we know almost all of them. But how can we not panic and face them with more serenity?

  • First of all, if these episodes occur more frequently, it would be useful (and essential) to consult a doctor, who, through therapy will help you in the tough world of DAP (panic attack disorder).
  • How do we recognize them? Unfortunately, panic attacks usually occur suddenly, apparently without a specific cause. They can last from 10 to 20 minutes, but it depends on the cases, sometimes even less or more. The symptoms that characterize them are almost always the same: tachycardia, cold sweating, fear of going crazy/fainting / dying, tremors, depersonalization, alteration and distorted perception of reality, a bit ‘as if we perceived a detachment from our body and the outside world.
  • Apparently, these feelings of the times unknown can cause us a lot of fear, but, thanks to the small useful tips, we can surely learn to live with it more constructively.
  • First of all, let’s learn to recognize them. If suddenly a panic attack arrives, we immediately think that we have already had others, so we know that we are not going to die, go crazy or pass out. We have already moved on, and we have to accept with a little philosophy the fact that sometimes they happen again.
  • Be very good with yourself, do not be punished and above all do not be filled with guilt. If you expose yourself very much to your fear, then congratulate yourself, even if the fear has generated a new panic attack in you. Acquiring and gaining confidence in oneself and one’s abilities are essential.
  • Set yourself goals, and look for as long as you can to respect them. If something makes you excessively afraid, if you know it can generate anxiety and panic in you, try to deal with it gradually, so try not to be afraid of fear, but set yourself goals.
  • Work for a while on something, and deal with it slowly.

If, for example, you are afraid of leaving your home, take steps one at a time through goals. During the first outing you will go to buy the newspaper in the kiosk in front of the house, and then gradually you will move more and more, congratulating yourself on the steps taken.

  • Avoid caffeine, because it could cause, in very anxious subjects, in some cases, the same (or almost) effects of panic attacks.
  • The same holds true for nicotine: if you are avid smokers, it is better to reduce cigarette consumption.

If your symptoms persist over time, as anticipated at the beginning of the article, consult a specialist and do not give up: from panic attacks, through the right therapy and lots of willpower you can undoubtedly get better!
