    Hi, sorry about that. Is there problem with swallowing? Tab loratidine can help. Also avoid things that could make it worse like cold drinks. I hope this helps...

    There's no problem with swallowing, and like I said it's not so severe. I often even forget about the itch..and it just goes away by itself. Do I really need to take drugs. not really a big fan of them

    OK, from what you have described, it is more of an allergy. Extremes of weather, cold drinks or nuts (groundnut, peanuts) can sometimes worsen it. The Loratidine is just to take care of it anytime you have it. Its 10mg once a day. Take care.
