Doctor :   Hello. Welcome to ask the doctor. I have read your query. I have seen the attached photograph also. I understand y our concern. As per details the most likely possibility for your symptoms is a condition of skin called Urticaria. Urticaria can be acute, chronic and acute on chronic. When duration of the disease is more than 6weeks, it is known as Chronic Urticaria. It is characterised by red colored itchy transient eruptions over body. It can be caused by allergy to recent infection, any food, seasonal change, drugs, pollen grains etc. I will advise you to get your blood sugar levels, thyroid profile, Absolute Eosinophil count, IgE levels done. In such cases, I prefer to advise oral antihistaminics like a combination of levocetrizine and montelukast to my patients. You should visit your doctor so that he can examine you and order tests for you. You can share my opinion with him. I hope it helps. Take care.
