I have skin writing (Dermatographic urticaria) and was prescribed a years subscription of Hydroxyzine. This works great, but in order to get a new supply, I must go to another appointment and spend the money out of my pocket, (thanks to my "wonderful" health insurance), and take time off work etc. This is a royal pain in the butt to hear the doctor say, "yep, still got skin writing. Need more Hydroxyzine!". Truth be told, I have better things to do than entertain this corrupt system. Rant aside, I'd like to see what you'd recommend for an over the counter substitute to mainly relieve the itchy skin that comes with skin writing. Thanks for your time!
