    Hello. The cause of that is difficult to explain however it has been found that when you exercise more regularly, the itching stops. Probably you don't exercise regularly?

    I actually do...I exercise regularly... if not road work I do other exercise such weight lifting and pushup...don't know if my case has anything to do with Urticaria ?

    Do you have any raised or reddish areas of skin or rash? If not it is unlikely to be urticaria. You may need to experiment with different materials to wear and different times for jogging as temperature and material my be contributory.

    no...OK..will check my time schedule to see it tomorrow... but I still think the itching is too much just to be a normal thing...anything like blood sampling(test) or injection you can advise

    If the itching comes on with exercise and resolves when you stop, I won't be too bothered. However If you have generalised body itching then you may need to do a liver function test. If the itching persists after you've stopped exercising then you can take loratadine tablets once daily.

    OK...one more question on my daughter I notice this on head since she was born just like a small bump we call ogo in my language... but this appear differently ...

    Is the area soft? It looks like an haematoma, a collection of blood. Was there a fall or any trauma after she was born? How old is she?
