What is Urticaria?
Urticaria, commonly referred to as hives, appears as raised, well-circumscribed areas of erythema and edema involving the dermis and epidermis that are very pruritic.
Hives usually cause itching, but may also burn or sting. They can appear anywhere on the body, including the face, lips, tongue, throat, or ears. The affected area may change in appearance within 24 hours, and the rash will usually settle within a few days.
Causes of Urticaria
Urticaria occurs when a trigger causes high levels of histamine and other chemical messengers to be released in the skin.
These substances cause the blood vessels in the affected area of skin to open up (often resulting in redness or pinkness) and become leaky. This extra fluid in the tissues causes swelling and itchiness.
Histamine is released for a wide range of reasons, including:
- an allergic reaction to substances such as latex
- cold or heat exposure
- Pain medications
- Insects or parasites
- Heat or cold
- Alcohol, food or food additives
- Pressure on the skin, as from a tight waistband
- the effect of certain chemicals found in some types of food and medications, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
However, in over half of acute urticaria cases, no obvious cause can be found.
There’s also no obvious cause in many cases of long-term urticaria.
However, most experts think that it’s often caused by the immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissue. Certain triggers may also make the symptoms worse. These include:
- drinking alcohol or caffeine
- emotional stress
- warm temperature
Types of Urticaria
- Acute: If the rash gets clear. If it clears completely within six weeks, it’s known as acute urticaria.
- Chronic: Sometimes the rash can persist or come and go for more than six weeks, often over many years, although this is less common. Doctors refer to this as chronic urticaria.
Types of urticaria include physical or contact-related urticaria, hereditary angioneurotic edema, chronic spontaneous urticaria, cold urticaria, erythromelalgia. # Physical or contact-related
Physical urticaria is also known as dermatographism. This type of allergy is characterized by the skin itch or swell after an individual has been exposed to pressure, stroking, friction, vibration, warmth or even sunlight.
Contact urticaria can be caused by anything that could potentially trigger an allergic reaction including clothing such as wool and latex; cosmetics such as perfumes and makeup; rubber such as latex gloves; plants like poison ivy and some flowers; fruits such as bananas and avocados; seafood like shellfish and squid; certain medications, including antibiotics and antihistamines. The reaction would normally take place within a few minutes to several hours after being in contact with these allergens. This type of allergy can be treated with antihistamines.
Hereditary angioneurotic edema (HAE) is another form of urticaria that has a hereditary factor associated with it. Like HAE, chronic spontaneous urticaria also inherits from one’s family but the cause remains unknown to date. The sufferer may experience symptoms such as swelling and itchiness after exposure to heat, light or stress. Cold urticaria is characterized by swellings and itchiness when exposed to cold temperatures while erythromelalgia causes painful feet with an intense itch that does not develop into welts or hives. Some individuals are allergic even to their own sweat so this condition is referred to as autotoxic urticaria.
Cholinergic urticaria (CU) is a subtype of physical urticaria and is caused by sweat or cholinergic stimuli. The changes in skin temperature due to sweating or heat exposure cause the body to release histamine which induces wheal formation. CU may be induced by physical exercise, high temperatures, alcohol consumption, spicy food, hot baths or showers, etc.
Autoimmune urticaria is a chronic form of urticaria in which the individual’s immune system recognizes their own body as a foreign substance. Immune cells release inflammatory molecules that attack the autoantigens, generating hives and other symptoms.
The symptoms can be very severe and can be triggered by many different factors including
– An infection such as laryngitis or herpes zoster (shingles);
– A hot bath;
– Mild physical exercise such as walking
– Certain foods or alcohol;
– Menstrual periods;
– Stressful events.
Difference Between Urticaria And Urticarial Vasculitis
Urticaria is a condition that causes the individual to develop welts on their skin. This is usually caused by many different factors including allergies, infections, stress, etc. The welts only last for a few days and are then gone. Urticarial vasculitis is a more serious condition that is characterized by inflammation of blood vessels. The blood vessel inflammation can result in the development of blotches on the skin and can be caused by many different factors including infections, inflammation from other conditions, etc.
These two conditions are similar in that they both develop welts on the individual’s skin. However urticarial vasculitis causes blotchy welts as opposed to the uniform hives that urticaria causes. Also, urticarial vasculitis results from inflammation of blood vessels while urticaria does not cause any such inflammatory changes. Additionally, there is no treatment for the condition of urticarial vasculitis, though it will often go away on its own after a few weeks or months. Antihistamines may help to lessen symptoms during this time period.
Diagnosis of Urticaria
Your GP will usually be able to diagnose urticaria by examining the rash on your skin.
They will want to find out what triggered your symptoms so you can avoid them in the future. They may ask you a number of questions including:
- when and where it began
- what you had to eat just before it began and details of your usual diet
- whether you started taking any new medication just before symptoms began
- whether you live or work in an environment where you come into contact with possible triggers, such as pets, chemicals or latex gloves
If your GP suspects that it’s caused by an allergic reaction, you may be referred to an allergy clinic for an allergy test.
If you’ve had urticaria most days for more than six weeks, it’s unlikely to be the result of an allergy, so allergy tests aren’t usually recommended.
However, your GP should ask about anything that makes your symptoms worse, such as medicines, as well as your alcohol and caffeine consumption and your stress levels.
You may also be referred for a number of tests, including a full blood count (FBC) and other tests, to find out whether there’s an underlying cause of your symptoms.
Treatment for Urticaria
In many cases, treatment isn’t needed for urticaria because the rash often gets better within a few days.
If the itchiness is causing you discomfort, a medication called antihistamine can help.
A short course of steroid tablets (oral corticosteroids) may occasionally be needed for more severe cases of urticaria.
If you have persistent urticaria, you may be referred to a skin specialist (dermatologist). Treatment usually involves medication to relieve the symptoms, while identifying and avoiding potential triggers.
Complications of Urticaria
Around a quarter of people with acute urticaria and half of people with chronic urticaria will also develop swelling in a deeper layer of skin.
This is known as angioedema and it can cause severe swelling in different parts of the body, such as the eyes, lips and genitals.
Medication such as antihistamines and short courses of oral corticosteroids (tablets) can be used to relieve the swelling.
Steroid injections may be needed for more severe cases of angioedema.
Are Urticaria Hives Contagious?
Urticaria hives are not contagious. They occur when the individual’s immune system has an allergic response to a substance or an infection, or from stress. Hives can be seen as reddish welts on the skin, usually on the face and neck. Most common triggers are not serious and include eating nuts, grapes, strawberries, shellfish, spice mixes, etc., but other causes can include insect bites and medications like aspirin. There is no cure for urticaria hives but there are treatments that can help control symptoms.
Can Urticaria Affect Joints?
Urticaria can also affect joints, but it is not very common. In some cases, when urticaria affects joints the individual may experience joint pain and swelling. Urticaria is a skin condition that causes the individual to develop hives, welts, or other itchy spots on their skin. The welts are usually red and may swell as they become irritated. This is a relatively common condition that can be caused by many different factors including allergies, infections, stress, etc.
Sometimes an individual’s body will produce large amounts of histamine when urticaria appears which can cause swelling in one area of the body. In some rare cases, this overwhelming amount of histamine can cause the throat muscles to swell up and block off the airway causing difficulty breathing or swallowing food and liquids. Some individuals with severe allergic reactions may go into shock due to complications from urticaria such as swollen joints, difficulty breathing, or organ failure.
Can Urticaria Affect Your Eyes?
Urticaria on your eyes will usually swell shut. You may not notice at first that there is anything wrong until everything around you begins to get dark and black spots cloud your vision. Many people actually begin to panic when this happens because they feel as though their eyes are swelling shut from something really serious such as meningitis or some other horrible fever-related illness. This is called angioedema, and it can be a very uncomfortable condition.
Can Urticaria Be Caused By Stress?
The jury is still out on this one. One study indicated that there might be a correlation between stress and urticaria, but it’s not known if the stress triggered the condition or if it was just a result of having to deal with an existing condition.
Homeopathic treatment for Urticaria

Homeopathy medicines reduce the frequency of episodes.
Can Urticaria Be Cured Permanently?
Yes !, Urticaria can be cured permanently with CUREplus homeopathy treatment. The treatment for Urticaria may vary from case to case – some requiring short-term whereas others requiring long-term treatment. The duration of treatment depends on various factors such as the severity, duration and extent of the illness, nature of treatment taken for the same and general health of the patient.
