Urticaria is a group of diseases, the main symptom of which is itching rashes, the size of a few millimeters to several centimeters, towering above the surface of the skin, with clearly defined outlines.
Urticaria is considered a dermatological disease, which is allergic and manifests as blisters in different areas of the skin. Externally, blisters resemble burns obtained with nettle, which is why this unpleasant disease has an identical name. The cause of urticaria may become intolerance to food, various medicines, materials, household chemicals and the like.
Also, the cause of the rash may be a stressful situation. The onset of the disease is not excluded in people of different ages. To effectively get rid of urticaria it is necessary to establish an irritant, because of which an allergy occurs.
Most often, with the usual form of hives, doctors prescribe sedatives and antihistamine tablets. In those dosages that correspond to the mass of a person and age.
As an antipruritic drug, diphenhydramine may work well. But in those situations when urticaria is recurrent, most often the doctor prescribes corticosteroid hormones.
