Dx :- Urticaria. This is a classical history of Ascaris lumbricoides infestation, where larval stage (Two moulting occurs in lung ) are traversing through lungs produces cough & common cold , which resolves 2 days back ( Sometimes these larval stage produces Loffler's Pneumonia ). While traversing through lungs it produces (itchy rash) URTICARIA due to allergen of larvae. Management : 1 ) Stool examination - Will not show eggs of Ascaris for these larvae and young Ascaris, may show only if adult female Ascaris lumbricoides is already present in intestine. 2) Sputum examination was helpful to demonstrate larvae of Ascaris lumbricoides. 3) Blood picture may show eosinophilia. Rx :- 1 ) Antihistamines of choice, to stabilise mast cells and to give relief from itch. If necessary short course of steroid is benificial. 2 ) Albendazole 400 mg - ODPC HS and repeat after 14 days.
