Physiologically, what you can do to get some relief in Heat Urticaria?? I am sharing a few tips that worked for me:
Do not bathe with hot water even in winters. Water be, the cooler, the better.
Take a tub bath in ice water or put your hands and feet in ice water for about 15-20 minutes. Let all of that heat get out of your limbs.
Do not do intense exercise at all. It’s a BIG NO! Or you may scratch the hell out of your skin within seconds or minutes after exercising.
Apply cold compresses on the affected area while sleeping or taking rest.
My self invented 🤣 simple pack that works wonders within minutes: Take about 30-50 ml coconut virgin oil (not extra virgin or normal hair oil) in a small glass bottle. Add 1 ml of Pudinhara (mint) tablet’s oil and 1 capsule of Vitamin E oil (not almond oil) in it (of course, after opening it up with a sterilized needle). Apply it 4-5 times after equal intervals of time necessarily or whenever you feel like itching apply this oil a bit over that area. CAUTION- Do not add more of the pudinhara in this much quantity of oil or you may have a burning sensation on the affected area(s) which does not go away easily.
If you have acutely painful deep red patches and warts on skin due to this hot urticaria, try applying a steroid ointment but only after cleaning the area with a gentle cleanser. Do not use any alcohol based cleanser or anti-septic liquid as the affected skin is not wounded because of any infection, but the streroid ointment will not stop the itching sensation completely.
Any simple calamine lotion also gives temporary relief. You can apply it if the wounds or warts are not too painful and itchy.
Wear the loosest of clothes made of cotton only.
Protect the affected areas from the sunlight at any cost. Avoid any kind of heat actually.
Take Deep Breathes all the time. No matter what situation you are in, keep your calm. Do not let your body heat up even the more due to anger or otherwise, no matter how many psychopaths try to trigger you and your trauma. Yes, trauma and stress can also be a cause of hot urticaria as it was in my case.
Do not apply any beauty essential oils in the base oil. Never apply mustard oil or sesame oil on the affected area. Sunscreen, lotion, cream, perfume, deodorant, vaseline, make-up, talcum powder-NO!!!!!
Apply Aloe-Vera Gel every time right after taking bath, on wet affected area without massaging it in and just keep it as a pack for about 10-15 minutes or if you can’t tolerate it then wash it away immediately. It may give burning sensation for 1 minute but gives relief later on and helps in outer healing of the skin as well. Essentially apply that Pudinhara oil mixture right after washing aloe-vera gel away or your skin may feel dry and itchy after some time.
I will share in details how I got hot/heat urticaria last year, about on-going condition, and healing phase- the areas, sensations I felt, mental state, lifestyle, etc. in any other post.
Also, avoid hot foods at any cost. Outer applications are of no use if one doesn’t heal Heat Urticaria from within. Be patient (not patient). Urticaria doesn’t heal within days or even weeks. Some people have it going on for years as well, although I had it for months.
This is not my picture. I took a screenshot of a picture from the internet but it looks like this, athough, in my case it was continuous big patches on my thighs near knees, both sides of my stomach, back of the neck on the left side, on the outer lower sides of the breasts, all of the collar-bone area from shoulder to shoulder, whole of my left inner fore-arm, and my face. Details, I will share tomorrow.
Share this with anyone who may need it. Take care. ❤💫
Lessons you will learn in your 30s about your twenties:
Partying hard is important but working harder is even more important.
Planning in your early twenties about your next 20 years could be life changing.
Go with the flow is the stupidest and useless concept, specially in career.
Knowledge gained in twenties never goes in vain.
It’s better to build a body in your twenties that can sustain anything in your later life for decades. Eating clean and healthy, working out really hard, getting sunshine and rain, breathing fresh air, etc. regularly could put you above most of the folks of your age who were into eating a lot of junk food, consuming alcohol, smoking, etc.
Those stupid crushes were nothing but a distraction.
Making connections just for the sake of career is really important.
Strategic expenditure and investments could put you ahead 90% of the people in 30s.
You could save a lot of wasted time and energy you spent on fake people, fake relationships, fake friendships.
You could be at least 10 times better if you had started preparing 10-12 months before any expected opportunity for your success and could succeed as well.
One career is not enough. One source of income is not enough.
Anybody can switch up on you, no matter who; even closest of family members for whom you may always fight.
People really didn’t matter and should not have mattered as much as you thought they did.
Who thinks what about you and your actions does not matter at all when you have reasons for each of your action and you are moving with the right and ethical purpose in mind.
Choosing your battles wisely is ultra-important. Letting some people live in their lies, misery, and stupidity, and going on with your head held high could save you a lot of mental energy.
Getting credits and appreciation for the work done by you was so necessary, be it in any form- reciprocated favour, certificates, money, or expanding the word about you.
Waiting for your love to be fulfilled by the other person as well kept you stuck for a long time. You could rather find the right partner and love could happen later on between you two.
Hoeing around many people kept you away from the best one for you, that you could have, that could be life changing for you for the better.
Humility and kindness were important but you should not have let people walk over you or use you or your sources.
Expecting anything from others is like blocking your own efficiency.
World runs on give and take; and people would keep on taking if you are a giver without boundaries.
You live only once is the utterly non-sense concept. You actually die only once and can live multiple lives and get a taste of different cultures, careers, people (as friends or acquaintances) but in a systematic manner. There is no point in spoiling your life though YOLO.
The fear of missing out is just a concept driven out of peer pressure. You never missed out on anything when you were completely sure that you didn’t want that thing or event to happen at that time.
Life is too short. Never leave an opportunity to speak your mind. Express emotions and let others know your thoughts without any fear of mis-judgements. 95-99% of the people misjudged your silence anyway.
Ignoring your creative side for the sake of your logical side and rational career could have made you feel frustrated for years.
You didn’t have to prove yourself to any single person on this planet about anything.
Learning skills were important but are always overly hyped. If you had taken enough time in understanding the working of anything, practicing it could take very little time. Studying and educating yourself intensively as well as extensively over your area of interest could really lead you towards expertise in it.
Jump first, think later is a stupid phrase. Thinking a lot before jumping into something could save you years or your entire life And from feelings like guilt, regret, and resentment. Don’t be driven by id.
One partner was really enough. You just didn’t have it in you to stay loyal or to be patient to find the right one.
Putting yourself first is never selfish. When you do help in terms of work, therapy, money, out of kindness, people start feeling entitled to it. People on top positions call it charity actually.
I have been posting micro as well as full-fledged blogs on this website daily and today is the 444th day of blogging. I want to thank all of my fellow-bloggers for appreciating my writings by liking, commenting, and following.
Since I have started finding blogging boring and I am more inclined towards real life, I have decided to discontinue blogging on a daily basis. I would still be posting here, reading all of your amazing blogs, and would show my presence but that would be irregular.
As a last note, perhaps I may continue blogging on my other website i.e. http://www.yourchoicestlifestyle.com but that too would be irregular. Kindly follow that website for more updates and share too. I would also be sharing your amazing blogs over there on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.
A Big Heartfelt THANK to all of my beautiful fellow-bloggers, especially the regular ones- You are the realest support, THANK YOU IN TONS❣❤🧡💛💚💙💜🖤💖💫
When you accustom your mind to sensory overload, then even the basic thinking process feels like over-thinking to you, although, all the while you are just Under-thinking.
I have seen many under-thinkers calling themselves over-thinkers just because they are used to impose their belief on one fact over and over again and thus, jumping to conclusions without any proof to validate them whereas they miss all the other possibilities about the same situation or fact, that even any normal thinker can think of.
In fact, some people just want the title of an over-thinker because it makes them look or sound smart or smarter than others.
In most of the cases, those who call themselves over-thinkers are just Over-Feelers and Under-Thinkers.
Over-thinking is analysing every aspect of anything for which you need to first think of all the possibilities related to it and not just impose your beliefs on only one aspect that you or your mind could grasp immediately.
In summation, if you can’t think of more possibilities, over one fact or situation than a normal person, You Are Not An Over-Thinker, rather you are an Under-Thinker.
My favourite unusual food combinations that are actually delicious-
Chinese Veg Chowmein with South Indian Coconut Chutney (coconut sauce)- An absolute favourite. When those strong flavours mingle with each-other, they simply create magic to my taste buds. The chutney should have south indian tampering and chowmein should have moderate amount of chinese sauces.
Maggi noodles (without adding maggi spice) with North Indian Palak Curry(Spinach curry)- Can’t say that I love it but it still tastes and feels good, but for that Palak Curry shall be creamy and with mild north indian spices, otherwise the basic taste of maggi noodles gets dominated by palak gravy, and vice-versa is applicable if maggi masala is added to maggi.
Gobhi masala (Fried cauliflower cooked with north indian spices) with zeera(cumin seeds) rice- People usually prefer to eat some gravy with rice. I also love those combinations but this is my absolute favourite. But if the cauliflower is not fried, then it doesn’t taste that good with rice (personal bias).
Drinking cold orange juice with lukewarm milk coffee- I think barely anyone would have tried this combination but this one makes my mind active. Also, orange juice after drinking coffee tastes really good. It may cause health complications related to acidity, didn’t cause anything as such to me though.
I could recall only these unusual food combinations, I will update with another post if I remember more of my personal favourites.
I would love to know about your unusual food combinations as well. Kindly comment down if you have any such favourites. 😍😋
