Uche Ogbodo, the Nollywood actress, has opened up about her struggles with Urticaria, a skin condition better known as Hives.
The film star took to her Instagram page on Friday to share a video of herself in the gym while she spoke of how she has been battling the medical condition for three years.
Urticaria is a raised, itchy rash that appears on the skin. The rash is usually very itchy and ranges in size from a few millimetres to the size of a hand.
According to WebMD, there is no known cure, but medicines and lifestyle changes can help you feel better.
Ogbodo described the condition as “one of the worst things” she has been through in life.
“It’s been 3 years I’ve had to deal with this condition, it’s one of the worst things I’ve been through in my life,” she wrote.
“I’m not bedridden physically but Urticaria has physically, mentally, and psychologically challenged me, even with my career.
“I wake up every day with a zeal to live which is why I believe I have overcome this demon. I’m not dying today! That is my everyday spirit and I go through my day like the warrior goddess that I am.”
