Just wanted to add, I also have rosacia around my nose (just around the nostrils), a patch of eczema on two knuckles on my right hand, and also dermagraphia. My symptoms are gone when I'm on the Xyzal but if I forget it for a day they come back and are about 20-30 minutes every few hours. Everything makes me itch then and the hives and itching come on completely unprovoked. I also have weather/exercise induced asthma but I haven't used my inhaler in ages.
Diagnosed Crohns (in October '15 after 6 years of GI symptoms and family history of Crohns and ulcerative colitis.
