Hello,

Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.

How long do these itchy welts last? Do they come and go every few hours?

Also how long have you had the problem now? Is anyone else living with you itching?

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
