Her father had Hypertension, & her mother had developed Hypertension & Diabetes Mellitus over the years.
She was very confident & expressive lady, who was well-supported and settled in life.
Dr. Shah studied the case in detail and prescribed her one of the research-based medicines for six weeks.
After six weeks of treatment, on 7th June 2016, she came for her first follow-up. The frequency of eruptions had declined i.e. it used to appear on the body after the interval of two- three days. And, gradually, the frequency of taking Antihistamines was also reduced to once in three days.
After four months of treatment, on 27th August 2016, her tendency to develop erythematous swelling at the sites of pressure had declined gradually. The dosage of Tablet Cetrizine was tapered from 10 mg to 5 mg & frequency variable was tapered to once or twice in a week.
After six months of treatment, on 1st October 2016, she used to develop eruptions once in a week & experienced the minimal intensity of itching.
After eight months of treatment, on 12th December 2016, no new eruptions reappeared on her body. And, now she took Tablet Cetrizine 5 mg for minimal itching once in five days
After ten months of treatment, on 7th February 2017, there was no appearance of new eruptions anymore. And, now she used to take Tablet Cetrizine 5 mg for minimal itching once in fifteen days
