Urticaria Pigmentosa – Causes & Treatment

Urticaria Pigmentosa – Natural Solution

Before we explain the natural remedies available for urticaria pigmentosa it would make common sense to try to explain it’s causes and why it actually happens so you have a better understanding of it. There are many types of urticaria like cholinergic urticaria, cold urticaria and many more which you can find more information on in our other posts to the right. So let’s start with a brief overview of urticaria pigmentosa and if you are actually suffering from this skin problem. If you are sure you have it then you can also visit the site below for more 100% natural remedies.

Urticaria pigmentosa is also referred to as “Generalized outbreak of cutaneous mastocytosis”. This rare skin problem is commonly caused by exuberant numbers of mast cells in the skin, which triggers lesions or hives on the skin when irritated. It is essential not to rub the lesions on the skin because this will just worsen the condition. Avoid rubbing and scratching at all costs if you can.

This skin problem is rare and it commonly affects children. Although some adults can also experience this skin problem. Since, this condition is not common to occur, many people are not that aware of urticaria pigmentosa. At times, they would think that the problem may just be a common skin rash or irritation, but in fact, it is already developing into urticaria pigmentosa, they just don’t realize this.

Now, to become knowledgeable about this skin condition, it is necessary to be aware of the causes of it. There could be different causes of this condition and they may include some of the following:

Urticaria Pigmentosa Causes:

• Point mutation and amino acid of proto-oncogence c-kit- Most cases of urticaria pigmentosa are caused by amino acid and point mutation proto-oncogence c-kit. What is c-kit?

C-kit is a transmembrane protein that when sticked to mast cell growth factor (MCGF), it points the cell to split up. This could eventually result to abnormal proliferation, which is why these mutations are being associated to dissimilar onset times of the urticaria pigmentosa skin outbreak.

• Rubbing of the lesions- Rubbing of the lesions can produce a speedy wheal or bumps. Most young children can develop fluid-filled blisters when they are scratched or rubbed. Usually, a huge amount of histamine gets released from extra mast cells, causing other conditions such as diarrhea, headache, flushing and a rapid heartbeat. This is not common with urticaria pigmentosa, but usually found in other forms of mastocytosis.

It is also necessary to be aware of the symptoms and signs of urticaria pigmentosa so that it can be easier for you to determine the skin condition. Be mindful that this rare skin problem has similar signs and symptoms with other skin diseases, so at times, it can be quite challenging to determine this skin condition. Here are some of the symptoms of the skin problem:

• Facial flushing- Regular flushing of the face is one of the signs of urticaria pigmentosa.

• Blister formation- Blister formation over lesion can take place when it is constantly rubbed.

• Brownish lesions- Brownish lesions on the skin also indicate you may have this skin problem.

• Red and brown spots- Red and brown spots on the skin are also signs of the skin irritation.

• Diarrhea- Binges of diarrhea are a common symptom associated with the skin problem. When this symptom occurs, this can usually indicate that the skin condition could be getting severe.

• Emotional stress- Urticaria pigmentosa is also associated with emotional stress, so sufferers can most likely experience this when they start to develop this rare skin condition.

• Some other symptoms that can be experienced by sufferers include palpitations and fainting. Fainting is rare, but it is found in cases that are left untreated. This should be treated because this can cause harm to patients.

By being aware of the symptoms and signs of urticaria pigmentosa, it can be easier to identify the skin condition and be able to apply the most suitable and effective remedy for yourself.

There are many available treatment methods just like antihistamines, but it would be best to apply natural home remedies, since they are not just effective, they are also the safest treatments available.

Home remedies are recommended because they are purely natural, plus they will not cost you too much money. Check out some of our helpful and effective natural remedies that you can easily apply at home:

• Hot bath- Hot bath is one of the most effective home remedies for this rare skin problem. Taking a hot bath everyday can release a great amount of histamine that usually causes the hives, itching and flushing.

• Aloe Vera- Aloe Vera is believed to have healing properties, which are effective in reducing the inflammation, as well as providing protective coating to your skin. It also relieves the itchiness, stinging, pain and redness. Aloe vera can be applied as a gel to help ease the intense irritation caused by the skin problem.

• Ginger- Ginger is another natural remedy that can eradicate the symptoms of urticaria pigmentosa. It rapidly quells the onset of itching, hives and allergic responses. Since, this remedy is antihistamin and anti-inflammatory, it also aids in improving the skin’s circulation and removes away the inflammatory waste products.

• Green tea- Green tea contains strong antihistamine property, so it effectively reduces hives and allergic inflammations. This natural treatment is also high in flavanoids and polyphenols, which are both antioxidants. They protect you against toxic damage to the tissues and help enhance your immune system. Simply consume this herbal tea everyday and you should see improvements on your skin over time.

• Oatmeal with hot water- Make a thick or dense paste by blending oatmeal and hot water. After making the paste, simply apply the solution in the affected areas of your skin. The paste will get hard after cooling, so you need to wash it immediately with plain water.

• Milk of magnesia- There is a theory that milk of magnesia happens to be an effective remedy for urticaria pigmentosa. Milk of magnesia is alkaline in nature and helps in relieving the burning sensation and itchiness caused by the skin condition.

These are just some of the most effective and safe home remedies for urticaria pigmentosa. They are commonly available in your home so you can apply them anytime you want. This is also the most practical way to overcome the skin problem because you will not need to spend a vast amount of money. And don’t forget to check Dr Levin’s site for more natural remedies.

Home remedies can definitely help you overcome urticaria pigmentosa, but if the skin problem is a severe case, it is best advised to consult a professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Natural remedies may not be the best treatment for severe cases of urticaria pigmentosa but you can always try them without any major risks to your overall health.

Try and stop yourself from falling into a trap of negativity by not doing anything to treat your skin problem because you can certainly do something positive to overcome the problem starting today. You just need to find and employ the most suitable remedy for urticaria pigmentosa you can find that you will be satisfied with.

      Hello, Brisbane/Rubina

      Exposure to the sun can increase
      melanocyte cells. When this happens
      the melanin in your skin produces
      darker patches and spots on your skin.

      As medication doesn’t seem to be helping
      you. You could try some of these natural
      treatments. They’re really simple and can
      be quite affective.

      Vitamin e oil, olive, sweet almond and
      castor oil can be applied to the dark spots
      by using a cotton ball. They contain good
      anti-oxidant activity.

      Very gently apply on the dark spot area
      then massage for a couple of minutes.
      You can then wash it away after at least
      2 to 3 hours.

      Try it once in the morning and then again
      in the evening before going to bed. Remember
      to use only one oil from the suggestions.

      Another method you can apply is by using
      lemon juice.

      You can apply it to the dark spots but don’t
      use your fingers. Apply it with a spoon or
      use a spray bottle. You can leave it for
      about 45 mins then use cold water to wash
      it away.

      If your skin is highly sensitive you can
      mix honey or water with the lemon juice
      that way you won’t feel too much discomfort.

      You can try this in the morning and evening
      as well.

      It’s important to try each approach with
      regular timing so the overall remedy has
      enough time to take affect. It may take
      a good few weeks to see any real difference
      so you’ll have to be patient if you decide
      to try these methods.

      The good thing is the methods are natural
      and safe so you don’t have to worry about
      any side-effects.

      Hope this was helpful.

    HI, Would you mind providing me with Dr Levin’s email address also. I have a 4 year old son with Urticaria Prigmentosa and have tried numerous remedies. He has spots all over his body including his face and I am hoping I can help him start to heal before he attends school.

    Thanks Giuliana

    Hi,

    I was diagnosed with urticaria pigmentosa 9 years ago. I do not have itchiness but I have a lot of spots. Hence the problem with me is mainly the way I look (I have spots all over my body). In fact, every day I still see new ones. Are you aware of patients who followed Dr Levin’s treatment and as a result the brown spots went away?

    Thank you,
    Marina

      Hello,

      It’s very important that you to try to
      overcome the stress as it will only make
      things worse. We know it can be
      difficult but you have to try.

      The following suggestions are not set
      in stone and are maybe things that you
      can take into consideration that
      could help you.

      Avoid intensive exercises, for example
      running, gym training etc.

      Try to use household products that are
      non-toxic and are natural and safe to use.

      Many laundry detergents, pesticides, air
      freshner and body spray deodarants contain
      synthetic substances that can be harmful.

      Spicy foods and MSG, monosodium glutamate,
      a natural compound found in various fruits
      and vegetables which is used by the food
      industry to heighten the taste and flavor of
      certain foods like soup and meat are known
      to provoke allergic reactions.

      We hope this is helpful but please always
      refer to your personal doctor for
      his/her advice at all times when
      trying different methods.

    Hallo Dr

    I am emailing all the way from South Africa. I have been diagnosed with Mastocytosis and everybody locally tells me that there is nothing they can do about it. I am soooo tired of hearing people say that they won’t even try. It is not worth it. Will your program help for mastocytosis?

    1. admin

      Hello, Mathilda

      Thanks for your question.

      Please note we are only recommending
      Dr Levin’s product we are not the
      owners of it.

      Yes it can help your urticaria
      pigmentosa mastocytosis but you
      must realize each person has his/her
      own biological chemistry therefore
      the results you get can vary according
      to your own unique circumstances.

      If you are in any doubts please consult
      a professional for advice.

      We hope this helps

      Michael
