Skin Urticaria
I have skin urticaria condition since 5 yrs. I have consulted doc on this 5 years back and got to know that this condition is chronic skin urticaria. Took fexova 180 ( fexofenadine) tab for 2+ years, 1 daily. Took secondary advice from another doc after 2+ years, changed this medicine to lecopM (levocetrizine & montulukast) tab 1 daily, taking this since 3 years..Condition comes under control only when i take these pills. It appears again on the second day if i stop taking this. However, the condition isn't that much which it was 5 years back. Frustrated with this condition now and want to know how long i need to take these pills. Requesting for your kind advise on why this condition came so suddenly, what I need to do and how will this go off permanently which would relax me mentally and physically.

Urticaria can be mentally exhausting. Since the cause remains unknown in majority of the patients, I can't help with that. You have to understand the usual course of the disease for about 50 percent patients is one yr, after which it subsides. Only in  5 percent this continues for about 5 years. My advice, don't stop the medication to check whether it is there or not. Please continue regular treatment for another one year or so.
