What is urticaria?
Urticaria or hives are red and raised lesions. The lesions can occur anywhere on the body. They appear as small round rings or large patches. People suffering from urticaria feel very uncomfortable as there is a lot of itching on the affected parts. Homeopathic remedies for urticaria give relief from the symptoms and also prevent a recurrence. Homeopathy treats the root cause of the problem.
Hives appear as a result of an allergic reaction. When a body reacts to an allergen, a substance called histamine is released from the skin cells. The histamine causes inflammation and fluid to accumulate under this skin. This causes raised rashes on the skin. The triggers for an allergic reaction are:
- Medicines such as antibiotics
- Foods such as nuts, eggs, and wheat products
- Infections such as common cold
- Change in temperature
- Pet dander from dogs, cats, and horses
- Some plants such as poison ivy and poison oak
- Insect bites and stings
- Certain chemicals
- Exposure to sunlight
Symptoms may vary and can last for a few minutes to a longer period of time. Common symptoms are:
- Hives can appear on any part of the body
- They may change shape, disappear, and reappear
- The rashes are red, like wheels with clear edges
- Pressing the center of a hive makes it turn white
