However, there are also some home remedies that can help relieve the symptoms without having to resort to drugs from the pharmacy, especially when it is not known what the cause of urticaria. Some options include epsom salts, oats or aloe vera, for example. Here's how to prepare and use each of these remedies:
Bathing with Epson salts and sweet almond oil has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and soothing properties that reduce skin irritation and promote well-being.

A great natural solution for urticaria is the honey poultice and hydraste because the hydraste is a medicinal plant that helps to dry urticaria and honey is a natural antiseptic that calms the irritation.
To prepare this home remedy simply add the 2 ingredients in a container and mix well. The home remedy should be spread over the affected area and, after application, protect the area with gauze. Change the gauze 2 times a day and repeat the procedure until hives become sore.
