Can a person suffering from urticaria donate blood?
Hello, Urticaria is an itchy rash on the skin. It is also known as hives. I am currently on the medication to treat. Next week in our office there is a blood donation camp. I am thinking about donating blood but I am worried should I donate blood or not as I am suffering from urticaria. I am worried that the person receiving my blood also gets infected with the same. Please let me know Can a person suffering from urticaria donate blood? What should I do? Should I donate my blood or not?
@oisin Hello, it is acceptable to donate blood even if you have a skin disease, although what kind of medication and treatment you are on are very important to consider if you want to donate blood. Please talk with your doctor before donating blood. My suggestion would be you should avoid donating blood with urticaria while taking medications. Thanks!
