The lesion or spots can be a few millimeters to centimeters in diameter and can be round, or they can form rings or large patches, or sometimes they have irregular shape as well. Urticaria, also known as hives, are red, itchy, raised areas of skin that appear in a variety of shapes and sizes; sometimes burning is also a prominent symptom. Wheals (welts), red lesions with a red “flare” at the borders, are another manifestation of
At some point in their lives, 20% of people are thought to develop urticaria, and of those with chronic urticaria, 70-75% are thought to be idiopathic, which means that no known allergic or non-allergic cause has been identified.
Urticaria with Angioedema
Angioedema is similar to urticaria or hives; however, instead of the swelling occurring on the skin’s surface, it occurs beneath or deeper beneath the skin, and the swelling is concentrated around the eyes, lips, hands, feet, and occasionally the genitals. It typically lasts longer than hives, but the swelling usually goes away in less than 24 hours.
Angioedema of the throat, tongue, or lungs can cause blockage of the airways, causing difficulty breathing, and may even become fatal. Occasionally, disfigurement results from persistent tissue swelling and inflammation.
CAUSES OF URTICARIA
Histamine, a chemical released from specialized cells along the skin’s blood vessels, causes angioedema or urticaria, which happen when blood plasma and histamine leak out of small blood vessels in the skin.
In some cases, it’s difficult to determine the precise cause of hives; histamine release can be induced by allergic reactions, chemicals in foods, insect stings, sunlight exposure, or medications.
SYMPTOMS OF URTICARIA
- a large number of blisters (wheals) that can appear anywhere on the body and are either red or skin-colored.
- As the reaction progresses, there are repeatedly appearing and disappearing welts that are different sizes and shapes.
- A potentially intense itching
- Lip, eyelid, and throat swelling that hurts (angioedema)
- a propensity for symptoms and signs to worsen in response to stress, heat, and other triggers
- a propensity for signs and symptoms to recur frequently and unpredictably for longer than six weeks, sometimes for months or years, and to do so more than six times in a row
TYPES OF URTICARIA
Angioedema and hives come in a variety of forms, including:
- Acute urticaria and/or angiodemaThe most common foods that trigger hives are nuts, chocolate, fish, tomatoes, eggs, fresh berries, soy, wheat, and milk. Fresh foods trigger hives more frequently than cooked foods. Some food additives and preservatives are also to blame. Aspirin and some non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications may also be to blame. Insect bites and internal disease may also be to blame.
- Chronic urticaria and/or angioedemaThe causes can be similar to those of acute urticaria but can also include autoimmunity, chronic infections, hormonal disorders, and malignancy. The causes are typically harder to identify than those causing acute urticaria and/or angioedema. : hives or swelling lasting longer than six weeks.
- Physical urticariaThe majority of the hives appear within an hour of exposure, with the majority of cases occurring right where the skin was stimulated. Urticaria is caused by direct physical stimulation of the skin, which can be brought on by a variety of factors including cold, heat, sun exposure, vibration, pressure, sweating, and exercise.
- Dermatographism: Hives that develop as a result of vigorously brushing or scratching the skin; these hives may also coexist with other types of urticaria.
- Hereditary angioedemaIt runs in families and causes excruciating tissue swelling.
