Info on medication
I have a case of chronic hives - brought on by the birth of my baby (now 5 months). The condition is worstening by the day. I recently discovered 2 medications which i believe are very good - Lacitrex and Histarix. Unfortunately these are overseas medications and i was wondering whether they are available in South Africa? If not, is there an equivalent? I have tried Clarityn, Tavegyl, Allergex and antihistamine cream - to no avail. Please help !!!!!

Sharon,

Neither of the mentioned products are available in SA. I'd suggest contacting a dermatologist - A steroid may be needed.
