I have been having problems with my skin for nearly a year. It is really sore / sensitive on my hands, under my arms and in between my legs. There isn't any thing to see except my hands are slightly red sometimes. My face is always slightly red around my mouth and nose and it is slightly swollen, i have had bleeding and sore gums. The past couple of weeks i have been having a tightening in my chest area like it is inflammed or something. I have seen two specialists the first said it was Urticaria and the second couldn't commit to any thing. I have tried many many anti histamines with no great effect. I have had two visable hive break outs in the past 12 months, one in Feb 08 and the other Nov 08. The soreness is there from when i get up it just has different levels, and gets worse as the day goes on. I would like any ideas of what it could be and if it is urticaria how i could treat it, as nothing seems to work.
