Skin Care and Diseases
I have very sensitive skin. Recently I got artificial urticaria. When I get nervous, tired, or stay in the cool area, it gets even worse. What should I do to keep this from happening again. What kind of foods should I eat to improve my skin condition? Thanks so much.
I do not know what artifical urticaria is. Urticaria is the medical term for hives. Usually there is no identifiable cause but it typically resolves within a few weeks in a similarly mysterious way to which it occurred.
