Urticaria is a skin condition which causes an outbreak of swollen, pale red bumps or plaques on the skin. Urticaria is also known as Hives. It occurs mostly on face, neck, arms and legs. The hives intensity ranges from mild to severe and can be chronic. Red bumps are itchy as the body comes in contact with the allergen and it releases a protein called Histamine. This protein triggers the symptoms of Hives by leaking into blood vessels and causes swelling with a burning sensation.
Types of Urticaria:
Based on the longevity of the symptoms, Hives can classify into two types:
(a) Acute Urticaria: It is the case of Hives which lasts less than or up to 6 weeks. It can also be seen disappearing within days. The common causes of Acute Urticaria are medications, food, latex or infections. Other diseases and insect bites can also be the reason sometimes. When an allergen reacts with the body, it triggers the symptoms of Hives.
(b) Chronic Urticaria: It lasts more than six weeks. The cause of chronic urticaria is challenging to find and to cure. It can cause due to other internal diseases. Chronic hives are very uncomfortable and interfere with everyday activities.
Symptoms of Urticaria
- Red or skin coloured Welts
- Painful swelling
- Congestion of eyes
Hives can be triggered by:
- Alcohol or smoke
- Food Allergies (dairy products, peanut, shellfish, fresh berries, chocolates)
- Tight clothing and woollen clothes
- Viral Infection
- Pet Dander
- Insect Bites
