Ing, urticaria is the skin rash that goes with allergies. Did your doctor try to find out what your baby is allergic to and did he prescribe something for it? Maybe the best would be to see a paediatrician and get it sorted out. Hopefully he won’t give you the run around and actually do something about it. Good luck.
