Urticaria | Urticaria cream | Cream for itchy skin


Urticaria is a common condition. It is estimated that around 1 in 6 people will experience it at some point in their lives. Urticaria tends to occur when a trigger causes the release of histamine in the body. Histamine can be released for a number of different reasons, either in response to infection, allergy, cold or heat exposure or even types of chemicals found in products or medications. As a result, the blood vessels in the affected area tend to open up, which results in redness and a raised, itchy or swollen rash.

If urticaria symptoms persist it is important to seek medical help and to identify the histamine triggers. Bear in mind that harsh cosmetic ingredients may be part of the problem, so switching to genuine natural or certified organic skin care can be an important step.

An urticarial rash often tends to disappear within a few days and for most, the condition is not a serious one. However, the symptoms that you may experience in the interim can certainly be uncomfortable. 

The Odylique range has cream for itchy, irritated skin that may be suitable for skin prone to urticaria symptoms. Odylique Repair Lotion with its powerful extract of chamomile, plus calendula and stellaria can help calm redness and itchy areas. Aloe vera juice in the Lotion is also helpful to repair and replenish skin. Odylique Calendula Balm also offers a potent dose of calendula; it is rich in beta-carotene that is soothing and repairing.
