Comments from related studies:
From this study (15 hours ago):
I have several areas of Lipoma (quite large bumps up to 6cm x 2cm in area) on my arms legs and torso. When pressed or rubbed gently an itchy rash appears on and around the bumps for up to an hour if the pressure is removed but can persist. The rash disappears spontainiously in time without treatment if the pressure is removed. However, areas that are under pressure for a long time e.g. back of thighs when sitting down require a soothing cream 'balneum +' or 'betnovate' to relieve the itch.
From this study (2 months ago):
3 days of urticaria, no allergies known

I am a 53 years old medical doctor. I was prescribed Alfuzocin 10 mg by my uro-genital surgeon for benign prostatic hyperplasia. Four months after taking the drug I started developing generalised urticarial and angioedema especially on the eyelids and lips.
My physician suspected some bacterial endotoxin as a cause and put me on a one month course of anti-histaminics. Two weeks iinto the course I realised that this was insane. The new drug must be he cause [I am also on anti diabetics and anti-hypertensives for 8 years]. I stopped the antihistaminic and Alfusosin a week ago and I haven't had a recurrence of urticarial, although I still get itchy in my legs and arms once in a while. I just wanted to share the experience with other readers.
