Urticaria is a common skin rash characterized by one or many wheals of reddened, raised, and itching skin. The wheels can vary in size, from relatively small to as large as a dinner plate. The wheels may be circular, oval-shaped, or annular. The condition can afflict any part of the body but is common to the trunk, throat, arms, and legs. Most weals disappear without a trace within a few hours only to be replaced by a new one elsewhere on the skin. Weals that persist in exactly the same spot for more than 24 hours may indicate a different disorder known as urticarial vasculitis.
An autoimmune disorder may be associated with chronic urticaria. The onset of chronic urticaria peaks between 20 to 40 years of age and onsets affect women more than men. Chronic urticaria can occur for many years but will disappear at times. Some patients may develop hives from physical causes such as exercise, cold or hot temperature, or pressure.
Urticaria is red, itchy weals that result from a skin reaction. The weals vary in size and appear and fade repeatedly as the reaction runs its course. The condition is considered chronic hives if the weals appear for more than six weeks and recur frequently over months or years.
There are many different reasons why Urticaria forms such as an allergic reaction to the medication, an insect sting, sunburns, exposure to heat, and food additives. After talking to our doctor in EUDERMIZ about your symptoms, doctor will determine the best approach to take to avoid future episodes.
Hives or urticaria is not an infectious disease and so are non contagious.
Yes. The different types of hives include acute urticaria, chronic urticaria, physical urticaria, and dermatographism. No matter the type of hives you’re experiencing, many people have found immediate relief by applying a wet compress to the affected area, sleeping in a cool room, and changing into loose-fitted clothing. However, if you’re having trouble breathing, feel dizzy, or are experiencing swelling in your face, call a medical professional immediately.
Your body temperature and the blood flow to the skin vary at night time warming up your skin. A rise in temperature of the skin, your body’s natural circadian rhythms, and other favorable conditions can make you feel itchy during night time. Moreover, the release of certain enzymes and proteins varies, such as the release of cytokines, which increases inflammation.
When you determine what is causing your hives to form, it’s best to remove that trigger altogether. If you don’t know what is causing your hives to flare, meet a Skin Doctor in Eudermiz, Dr. A. Sai Sandeepthi can help your problem.
At Eudermiz Clinic in Hyderabad, our allergy specialists may prescribe antihistamines to treat recurrent hives and relieve symptoms. However, as always, avoidance may be the best treatment if hives are caused by a food allergy or drug allergy. We can be treated with an elimination diet eliminating the foods that may be triggering the hives. If a drug is a culprit it needs to be stopped. Sometimes it is necessary to do a complete medical workup to determine whether you have a viral or fungal infection or even if you have a more serious medical condition like lupus, hepatitis B, or even leukemia or lymphoma.
