Answer

Tailor therapy according to the patient's specific needs for symptomatic relief. Patients may be started on oral H1 antihistamine and/or oral disodium cromoglycate with or without the use of a potent topical steroid for selected cutaneous lesions. In patients with a limited number of lesions, intralesional corticosteroid injections are an additional therapeutic option. Oral histamine H2 antagonists may be administered in addition to an oral H1 antihistamine.
