Possible remedy for this lady!
This patient most probably has "layers" of illness which needs careful examination and remedy selection. The first remedy to be given has to be selected after a careful case taking, underlining the most severe, significant and reliable symptoms. The perfect remedy for this lady to remove her skin from urticaria pigmentosa is Staphysagria because she is a victim of sexual harassment from the childhood and her anger was buried somewhere in her mind.
