Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is urticaria?

Urticaria is a skin disease characterized by raised bumps, wheals over the skin. The bumps vary in size and last from a few hours to several days. Once the episode of urticaria is over, no skin changes remain. In most cases, urticaria arises from an allergic reaction.

2. How do I know if I have urticaria?

A person having urticaria will have raised bumps of varying size on the skin. This is attended with marked itching, stinging and burning sensation. Urticaria can be acute or chronic.

3. What causes urticaria?

In most cases, urticaria is the result of an allergic reaction. Allergy is basically a hypersensitive reaction in a person to a substance to which they are allergic.  In urticaria, this allergic reaction arises mainly from insect bites, certain medicines (NSAID’s, and antibiotics) and food products such as nuts, fish and strawberries. Urticaria arises from the release of histamines and other inflammatory mediators into the skin. Other factors that can trigger an episode of urticarial are – exposure to cold/heat, sun exposure, pressure, exercise, stress, and contact with water.

4. What kind of food products lead to urticaria?

Eggs, shellfish, nuts, chocolates, strawberries, alcohol and caffeine usually have the potential to treat urticaria.

5. What is cholinergic urticaria?

Cholinergic urticarial, also known as stress urticarial, is a type of urticaria where sweating leads to the formation of bumps on the skin. Exercising and being present in a hot environment are the main triggers for cholinergic urticaria.

6. What does the term cold urticaria mean?

Cold urticaria refers to urticaria that arises from exposure to cold or damp environmental condition.

7. I get wheals on skin from scratching, what could it be?

If you are getting wheals on skin from scratching, then there is a good chance that it could be dermatographic urticaria. In dermatographic urticaria, wheals appear on the skin a few minutes after scratching. These wheals, also known as flares, usually subside in around 30 minutes.

8. Can coming in contact with water lead to urticaria?

A case of urticaria can be easily diagnosed by the appearance of skin rash. In cases where allergies are the suspected cause of urticaria, allergy tests must be conducted.

11. What is angioedema?

Angioedema is a condition arising from an allergic reaction caused by the release of histamines and other chemicals into the bloodstream. In angioedema, the swelling appears under the skin instead of on the surface as in case of urticaria. The swelling appears mainly around the eyes or lips, sometimes in the hands, feet, and genitals. In some cases, angioedema involves the throat and tongue, thus blocking the airways. Such cases of angioedema are life-threatening and need to be treated as a medical emergency.

12. Can Homeopathy Treat my urticaria permanently?

Yes Homeopathic medicines offer a effective solution for urticaria. The duration to the treatment will vary from case to case. Factors such as intensity, frequency and duration of urticaria decide the course of treatment under Homeopathy.

13. Can lifestyle changes help manage urticaria?

Yes, lifestyle changes can make a big difference and even prevent urticaria. The best way to prevent urticaria is to know the triggers and avoid them. Some known triggers for urticaria are cold, heat, exercise, stress. A person who is allergic to certain food products which lead to urticaria could restrict their consumption. Medication that leads to urticaria must be avoided at all cost. Stay away from harsh soaps while washing and bathing. Also, avoid bathing with very warm or very cold water. Wear loose, comfortable clothes.

    I have itching problem in my groin area for past ten years ( जांघों में, जहां underwear होती है). I’am using trunks for past 20 odd years. Itching is same as it is in Urticaria. Nowhere else on my body do I have this problem. I used to drink a lot. Maybe it is because of this.
