30 years of urticaria
lovlyleslie posted:
Hello, I'm African American single mother and have suffered from urticaria since age 7. I was first diagnosed with over sensitive skin and told to bathe in oatmeal and stay out the sun. By age 15 I was diagnosed with urticaria and was told I had to continue staying indoors, no sugar, and put on many medications.I became very sick from all the meds and itch attacks. All through school I was hit to see hand prints raise in my skin, chased home, and called all sorts of names like freak. Now due to my depression I cry and Im a walking ball of pain. Thank God for this site, bless you all!!
