Differential Diagnosis


 Very pruritic, widespread whealing of the skin involved the face, neck, trunk and extremities of four days duration. There was no apparent precipitating cause. The condition responded very well to a combination of sedative (Hydroxyzine) and non-sedative (Cetrizine) antihistamines and a single injection of intermediate acting corticosteroid.
