Ayurvedic Treatment of Urticaria:Turmeric(Curcuma longa) which is popularly known as Haridra in Ayurveda is a very effective medicine for Urticaria condition.

    • Ravneet Kaur says:

      Hey i would like to share something with people who is suffering from Urticaria. Even i am also suffering from Urticaria.
      i have noticed that in Medical science there is no cure for this disease except Steroid. which may cause other several problems like discomfort in breathing, Weight gain etc.
      just stop all the medications. just take 1-2 tsp Turmeric in milk and add honey instead of Sugar. it will really help you to get rid of this problem.

      this will not even help you to get rid of Urticaria even from other small small problems. and do not depress just have faith and positive approach that yes that i will be fine .

    hi Admin,

    I am suffering from chronic urticaria from past 4 year. consulted 4 doctors. taken so many medicines, but did not found a permanent solution. Recently consulted a Doc and after seeing the past medications which i have took he suggested to take ELINA 10mg tablet and some acidity tablet. Also told to do some blood test for allergy and thyroid. All allerdy test and urine test results come normal but TSH was 6.8mcIU/ml. A physician said to do thyroid preoxidise antibody test and results come 355mcIU/ml.

    Suggest me is thyroid problems create chronic urticaria?

    WHat is the permanent solution for it?
