Hi. Greetings . what your wife has is probably some form of urticaria . this is characterised by skin allergy and itchiness with wheals or hives and could be triggered by food/ medicines/ environmental agents etc. Calamine and cetrizine would be helpful in relieving symptoms, however, please see a qualified dermatologist near you for direction discussion of the problem at length and arriving at a possible cause for the same with a treatment plan. Hope this helps. Further queries may be sent on follow up messaging. Warm regards Dr Govind Suresh Mittal.
