Hives, also known as urticaria, are like raised red bumps on your skin. They happen when your body reacts to something it’s allergic to, certain foods (eggs, nuts, shellfish), medications (like antibiotics and pain relievers), activities (such as exercise or scratching), and even stress are the main causes that can trigger it.
How do you know if it’s Hives or a Rash?
Hives show up as itchy, red or skin-colored bumps with clear edges on your skin. These bumps, called wheals, can grow, spread, and even join together to form larger raised areas. The interesting thing is that these wheals can change shape, disappear, and come back within a short time, usually minutes or hours. Hives is an example of a rash, but not all rashes are hives.
Best Remedy for Hives (Urticaria)
Homeopathy is a well-established and thorough approach to healthcare. Instead of just focusing on the outer skin symptoms, it targets the immune system of the person. The goal is to address the root cause of Urticaria by calming or regulating the overactive immune system, which is reacting too much to harmless things. Homeopathy helps a lot by making Urticaria symptoms less intense, less frequent, and shorter in duration. It offers overall relief that lasts for a long time.
How to naturally reduce Hives?
Identify and stay away of what triggers your hives. Soothe itching and burning with non-medicated petroleum jelly. Reduce stress and symptoms by practicing calming activities like yoga and meditation. Keep baths brief, use less soap, and moisturize damp skin afterward. Avoid eggs, fish, peanuts, and soy. Cut down on dairy, sugar, white flour, fried, and processed foods. Go for lean, organic meat to minimize excess fat intake. Say no to sugar, gluten (found in wheat, barley, rye, and oats), and raw eggs.
Best Homeopathic Remedy for Hives
Top 3 homeopathic medicines of hives, also known as urticaria are Apis Mel, Natrum Mur and Urtica Urens.
Apis Mellifica: Top Homeopathy for Hives (Urticaria)
Apis Mellifica is a key homeopathic remedy for various skin issues, prominently used in treating urticaria or skin allergies. It is especially beneficial when the body is covered with large, red or white-bordered wheals that are painful, tender, and extremely sensitive to touch. This remedy is effective in addressing stinging pains, violent itching, and burning sensations in the wheals. It proves valuable in first aid for bee stings, alleviating swelling, itching, and burning. Apis Mellifica also provides relief from intolerable itching at night, prickling sensations, roughness, dryness, and skin allergies. It is considered in cases of large boils and carbuncles, characterized by burning and stinging pains. Additionally, Apis Mellifica is recommended for measles-related weakness, especially in cases where eruptions did not develop properly. It also manages skin burns, prickly heat, and other skin conditions effectively.
Natrum Mur: Top Homeopathic Solution for Skin Allergies
Natrum Mur is widely used in homeopathy to address various skin issues, including fever blisters, urticaria, genital herpes, and eczema. It is particularly effective for dry eczema, where the skin becomes dry, raw, red, and inflamed. In cases of urticaria with large red blotches covering the entire body, Natrum Mur is known to provide relief from intense itching and burning, often triggered by vigorous exercise.
This remedy is also beneficial for fever blisters or cold sores, characterized by vesicles filled with watery contents around the lips, resembling pearls. Natrum Mur proves helpful for eruptions in areas like the bend of limbs, borders of hair, and behind the ears. Additionally, it is recommended for genital herpes, acne, comedones, sunburns, dry and chapped skin, hangnails, and warts specifically on the palms of hands.
