I'll try to make this short.
My condition started in december 2006. I really don't know what's causing it, but I remember I went to the hospital for a really bad rash I had. It was itching like hell, and the doctor suspected I had Scabies. He prescribed me Permethrin cream. After that I was feeling a lot better, but weeks later I remember I ate something (some chicken tv dinner I think) and then I started having this crazy rashes. I'm hispanic so my complextion is much darker than most here but you can still see the redness and all. What I do know is that I share a lot of the symptoms I read in other posts. Which are:
Redness/Swelling in the face
Stiffness in affected facial tissue
Red hives/bumps on face neck, chest, back, arms, hands, etc.
The worst part is that I haven't been able to go to a specialist since my financial situation is really bad and I don't have health insurance yet. What really bothers me the most is that since december I've had 5 episodes of swelling/flaring/redness ranging from medium to really bad. And im never 100% ok. I went two times to the hospital and they prescribed Prednisone and Hydroxyzine and that seems to help. Hopefully I will be able to se a especialist soon when I save some money.
I would appreciate any comments.
