Urticaria and its homeopathic treatmentUrticaria is a fleeting skin problem. Hives is another common name for urticaria. Before we come to the topic of the best homeopathic medicines for urticaria, it is worthwhile to understand a little bit more about urticaria.

As I have mentioned in the beginning, it is a momentary problem. But it causes immense distress till the time it lasts. In most cases, it gets better in a couple of hours on its own. It causes a lot of itching and burning. The problem may be so intense for those moments that patients often scratch hard with sharp objects.

What are Hives or Urticaria or Nettle Rash (छपाकी क्या है)

For those who have not suffered from Urticaria or Hives, it is an allergic skin disorder. Nettle rash is another common name for it. That is because urticaria causes a rash which itches like that after touching a nettle plant.

This allergic reaction may be due to a number of things. Often it is difficult to pinpoint the exact thing that causes this allergy. Hindi names for urticaria are Chhapaaki or Pitti (छपाकी या पित्ती ). In Hindi, people often refer to the wheals that form as Chakatte ( चकत्ते ).

Urticaria Symptoms or Nettle Rash symptoms (छपाकी या पित्ती के लक्षण)

The characteristics of Urticaria is the formation of reddish swellings (चकत्ते ), bumps or patches on the skin, most likely as a result of an allergy. The eruptions may be small in size or big and may join together to form plaques. The seat of the eruptions may vary from the face, arms, legs, back to chest.

These eruptions tend to appear all of a sudden without any warning. There may be slight itching on any part of the body. Once the patient scratches the affected area, eruptions appear. Such eruptions may disappear after some time or even last for long in some cases.

What causes Urticaria or Hives or Nettle Rash (छपाकी  या पित्ती के कारण)

As I have mentioned earlier, the cause of urticaria is allergy in one form or the other. This allergy can occur after coming into contact with a number of possible things. All these possible allergens are normal and commonly seen or used products or even natural substances.

The immune system of an affected person may respond abnormally to the presence of a substance which is otherwise completely harmless. It is just the immunity of the individual that has gone into overdrive. It starts considering some natural or normal things as invaders and reacts abnormally.

Treating Hives or Urticaria naturally or home remedies for Hives (छपाकी या पित्ती का इलाज)

There are a lot of wonder cures floating around on the internet which claim to treat hives naturally. The feedback from patients who have used such so called natural treatments for urticaria has not been encouraging at all. Some cases do get some help but that is more sporadic in nature and one cannot say with confidence that the thing which worked for one patient will work for others.

The only thing which seems to have given consistent relief to most of the patients is the application of Coconut oil on the affected part. Regular application of coconut oil and that too multiple times in a day has shown some benefit to the patients. It helps in relieving itching on the affected parts. It has some medicinal effects too which help in reducing local inflammatory response.

Homeopathic treatment of urticaria or hives (छपाकी या पित्ती का होम्योपैथिक इलाज)

Coming to Homeopathy treatment of Hives or Urticaria, it has shown consistently good results over the ages and that too all over the world. Patients all over the world have experienced this. Homeopathic doctors all over the world too have seen similar results. This has been our experience too in the last 2 decades.

The results have been consistently good and patients get completely cured. Even in the most severe and chronic cases, the results have been most encouraging.

In my practice, I have been hugely successful in helping patients get rid of this irritating problem. Most of the patients had been getting these urticarial eruptions for months on end and had been using anti allergic medicines for a long time but with only temporary relief.

All of the patients were cured in a short period of couple of months of regular homeopathic treatment. Once the hives were cured, there was no recurrence even after all homeopathic remedies were stopped.

To top this, you have the added assurance that these natural medicines for urticaria are completely safe and do not have any side effects at all. Also, these medicines are not habit forming and once cured, you will not need to take any medicine at all.
