Flushing started Feb. 2013 with large hives. Face and neck become inflamed with burning pain, not itching. Had been on Celebrex several years ( also tried other NSAIDS including Ibuprofen, mobic and aspirin) For neck and joint pain as well as chronic plantar facitits. Episode seem less often without NSAIDS. Continue to have episodes regardless sometimes daily Although have had periods of no episodes for a week. Areas now have has permanent markings (scaring?)
I have seen two dermatologist, family doctor, and allergist who cannot diagnose. Many lab test were within normal limits except mast cells were slightly elevated around 300. Aldactone is new Replacing HCTZ; Zantac, Allegra , and Zyrtec are new to help symptoms. Nasonex is also new . Tried topical steroid cream which was not effective. Thanks!
