Urticaria

Definition:

Urticaria, commonly known as hives, is a skin condition characterized by raised, red, itchy welts that appear suddenly on the skin. These welts may vary in size and shape and often appear and disappear within hours or a day.

Types :
  • Acute Urticaria: Lasts for a few hours to several weeks and is often triggered by allergens, infections, medications, or other factors.
  • Chronic Urticaria: Lasts for more than six weeks and may have no apparent cause. It can be more challenging to treat than acute urticaria.
Causes :
  • Urticaria is typically caused by the release of histamine and other chemicals from mast cells in response to triggers, including:
  • Allergens (foods, medications, insect stings)
  • Infections (viral or bacterial)
  • Physical stimuli (heat, cold, pressure)
  • Stress or emotional factors
  • Autoimmune reactions
Symptoms:
  • Raised, red, itchy welts (hives)
  • Swelling, often around the eyes, lips, hands, or feet
  • Itching or burning sensation
  • The welts may change shape or size and may come and go quickly.
Diagnosis:
  • A healthcare provider diagnoses urticaria based on clinical examination, medical history, and evaluation of symptoms. Allergy tests or blood tests may be conducted to identify triggers in some cases.
Risk Factors:
  • Allergies or sensitivities to certain substances
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Exposure to triggers like heat, cold, or pressure
Preventions:
  • Identify and avoid known triggers
  • Use hypoallergenic skincare products
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing
  • Manage stress effectively
  • Seek medical attention for severe reactions
Homoeopathic Treatment:
  • Homeopathy treatment for urticaria aims to address the underlying causes and promote overall well-being. Remedies are selected based on individual symptoms and constitution. Some commonly used homeopathic remedies for urticaria include:
  • Apis mellifica: Used for hives with intense itching, burning, and swelling.
  • Urtica urens: For hives with stinging, itching, and redness.
  • Natrum muriaticum: For urticaria triggered by emotions or stress.
  • Consulting a qualified homeopath is essential for proper evaluation and personalized treatment recommendations.
