    Have you mentioned this to your doctor? A zyrtec sure as heck isn't going to help when your throat swells- that can be very dangerous, as you may die of asphyxiation!! You need to see the doc ASAP, and tell him/her about these recent events. In all likelihood, he/she'll prescribe an Epi Pen to give yourself a boost of epinephrine, which makes breathing easier & allows you to get to the E.R.

    Hi there,

    Urticaria is really the medical term for the condition commonly known as hives. The best resource online about this condition is http://urticaria.toptips.org/

    Persistent Idiopathic Urticaria is basically a serious variation of hives or urticaria which is categorised as having lasted longer than 6 weeks, that can be a constant urticaria episode or a series of urticaria episodes which repeat for more than 6 weeks. The term Idiopathic explains a condition which has no noticeable explanation or cause.

    Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria generally suggests a severe variation of urticaria which has no apparent cause or reason. Most of what I have simply said will come as no shock to the numerous of us who have actually suffered or still experience chronic hives.

    The issue we face is that lots of people, also those in the medical profession commonly consider our condition as simply a straightforward allergy, however this analogy is really wrong. Although the signs and possibly the triggers of persistent idiopathic urticaria are the same as acute hives (urticaria) or that of a simple allergic reaction, the explanations are extremely different.

    It's is important to understand the distinction between reason or cause and trigger as they are not the same for individuals who suffer with chronic idiopathic urticaria.

    Try taking TheraFlu but make sure you read the ingredient so they wont interact with your allergy medicine. When you have take make an appointment to you doctor and check yourself for strep throat. Maybe it's not your throat that's having issues, there could be tonsils or your thyroid glands. Or maybe your allergy medicine isn't helping. For cold you can try helping your immune system a little bit by taking "Zinc" it's a natural way to boost up you immune system. You can find Zinc in form of candy at any grocery store near cold medicine like "Halls" it is in a black box named "Cold Ease". Also take vitamin C it's helps your immune system too and if you take it regularly it prevents you from getting sick as much. As far as now wrap a warm scarf around your neck to keep your esophagus "tube that goes from your throat into your stomach and lungs which is in your neck" warm. Do not drink too hot of a tea it can actually worsen the symptoms and you might loose your voice for a little while. Also try honey with you tea, make sure not to drink honey and lemon together because they cancel each other out.
