Kesian pulak kat blog Syafiah ni kan. Terbiar je tanpa kemaskini. Mak asyik update di FB, boleh share ilmu dengan cara yang lebih pantas, feedback dapat lebih cepat. Selain itu, projek masak, wedding (sempena cuti sekolah) dan gambar sama² mencanak naik. Menaip bukan lagi pilihan utama. Tapi dalam masa yang sama kesian kat kawan² *ade lagi ke yang baca blog ni? Hihi*
This is what happened to Syafiah on 17th June 2010 - allergic known as urticaria (Malay called it "sopak garam"):
My husband brought her to DEMC immediately on the same day. The pediatric has prescribed her hydrocortisone (external use) & chlorpheniramine (internal). Sempat bagi sekali je chlorpheniramine. Itupun 1.5ml. Alhamdulillah next day dah terus baik. Kalau tak, kesian... She kept scratching her face all over again. Dah la tu, muka pun dah jadi cam anak Cina gayanya.
Saya pernah merasa kena sopak garam ni seminggu. Serik... mandi kena dengan air suam. Sabun kena pakai Dettol. Tapi tanpa ubat la. Akhirnya baik sendiri, alhamdulillah. Kat mana yang kita garu, kita situlah yang akan bengkak. Azab! *belum azab di akhirat lagi, na'uzubillah.
Urticaria (from the Latin urtica, nettle (whence It. ortica, Sp. ortiga, Pg. urtiga) urere, to burn) (or hives) are a kind of skin rash notable for dark red, raised, itchy bumps. Hives are frequently caused by allergic reactions; however, there are many non-allergic causes. For example, most cases of hives lasting less than six weeks (acute urticaria) are the result of an allergic trigger. Chronic urticaria (hives lasting longer than six weeks) are rarely due to an allergy. The majority of patients with chronic hives have an unknown (idiopathic) cause. Perhaps as many as 30-40% of patients with chronic idiopathic urticaria will, in fact, have an autoimmune cause. Acute viral infection is another common cause of acute urticaria (viral exanthem). Less common causes of hives include friction, pressure, temperature extremes, exercise, and sunlight.Wheals (raised areas surrounded by a red base) from urticaria can appear anywhere on the surface of the skin. Whether the trigger is allergic or non-allergic, there is a complex release of inflammatory mediators, including histamine from cutaneous mast cells, resulting in fluid leakage from superficial blood vessels. Wheals may be pinpoint in size, or several inches in diameter. Angioedema is a related condition (also from allergic and non-allergic causes), though fluid leakage is from much deeper blood vessels. Individual hives that are painful, last more than 24 hours, or leave a bruise as they heal are more likely to be a more serious condition called urticarial vasculitis. Hives caused by stroking the skin (often linear in appearance) are due to a benign condition called dermographism.
Chlorphenamine (chlorpheniramine), commonly marketed in the form of chlorphenamine maleate (Chlor-Trimeton, Piriton, Chlor-Tripolon, HISTA-12), is a first-generation alkylamine antihistamine used in the prevention of the symptoms of allergic conditions such as rhinitis and urticaria. Its sedative effects are relatively weak compared to other first-generation antihistamines. Chlorpheniramine is one of the most commonly used antihistamines in small-animal veterinary practice as well. Although not generally approved as an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication, chlorpheniramine appears to have these properties as well (see below).
