Posted by Gerhard Fourie on

Your Solution Compounding Pharmacy Antihistamine Creams can provide relief from conditions of the skin such as allergic itching, allergic rashes, stings and insect bites. Let us have a quick look at what anti-histamines are, and why they are needed to relieve symptoms from conditions caused by allergens. (Read also our Article: 10-Allergy Triggers)

Allergic reactions and Antihistamines
Allergens are things you're allergic to. Examples include pollen, dust, pet dander, even foods or drugs. When an allergen enters your body, your body releases histamine. Histamine causes the familiar symptoms of allergies, as mentioned above. Antihistamines relieve these symptoms by blocking histamine, (a compound released in allergic inflammatory reactions), responsible for immediate hypersensitivity reactions such as sneezing and Urticaria.

Urticaria, also known as hives, is an outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps or plaques (wheals) on the skin that appear suddenly. Hives usually cause itching, but may also burn or sting. They can appear anywhere on the body, including the face, lips, tongue, throat, or ears. Hives vary in size (from a pencil eraser to a dinner plate), and may join together to form larger areas known as plaques. Some hives may be caused by allergies to such things as foods, infections, medications, food colours, preservatives, insect stings, and contactants. Having hives may cause stress, but stress by itself does not cause hives. Foods that can cause hives are nuts, chocolate, fish, tomatoes, eggs, fresh berries, and milk. Certain food additives and preservatives may also be to blame.

YSCP Antihistamine Creams can provide relief, as they contain anti-histamines and are specially formulated. Please contact Your Solution Compounding Pharmacy for more information about Antihistamine Creams, or visit us at 1/6 Pine Rivers Office Park, 205 Leitchs Rd. Brendale, QLD.
