Histafen Anti-Itch Relief Cream
Histafen does not treat nor cure Mast Cell Activation Syndrome / Mast Cell Activation Disorder but may provide naturally STRONG itch relief support for those who suffer from constant itchy skin!
Itchy Skin Could Be Caused by A Number of Different Conditions
People who have Mast Cell Activating Syndrome or Low Diamine Oxidase (produce very little DAO Enzyme which is supposed to help breakdown histamine in foods naturally). People with MCAS or MCAD (Mast Cell Activation Disorder) have allergic responses to the environment or foods (especially foods with high histamine). The reaction could be immediate or delayed (even itching at night (nocturnal pruritus)) and cause swelling, inflammation, redness, hives and itching.
Can you STOP the Endless Suffering from Itchy Skin?
What happens when you continue to scratch and scratch and scratch until there is bleeding? It breaks down the skin and invites pathogens which can lead to more severe infection. High levels of histamine can lead to almost never ending itching = never ending scratching. Can be stressful and nerve racking for the person being affected and even parents of children who have Mast Cell Activation Disorder. So worrying as a parent and difficult to watch your child suffering.
Mast Cell Activating Syndrome (MCAS) / Mast Cell Activation Disorder (MCAD) could arise from any number of things. Pets, dust, certain plants, foods (salicylates, high histamine foods, eggs, peanuts, seafood), environmental factors, even hot baths or times of stress, etc. Every person is different and it takes time to figure out the cause behind it and atopic eczema may develop from it. Due to the continued scratching and dry skin / cracked skin it can lead to bacterial or fungal infections….and later doctors will prescribe topical steroids (short lived treatment that weakens / thins the skin), antihistamines (which may block the natural production of Diamine Oxidase) and even worse (sometimes necessary) oral antibiotics (but will wipe out the probiotics in the gut which invite the influx of other pathogens).
Need To Calm Histamine Release?
Histamine release happens around many areas of the body including the back of the shoulder blades, inner elbows, wrists, around the knees and can progress to become worse from those areas. Due to the high histamine release the skin can begin to dry out as well. People often continue applying endless amounts of cream / lotion hoping the reaction subsides or hoping the area is moisturized. The cause must be investigated to prevent the dryness from increasing.
Get Better Sleep When The Itchiness Calms Down
Sleep is also affected from the itching due to histamine release. Endless itching, teeth grinding, kicking while asleep can happen as well. It can be a difficult time for parents for kids who have this condition and can’t sleep very well at night always waking up to scratch or moms or dads having to help scratch their child to help them fall asleep.
