Chronic urticaria is an itchy inflammatory skin condition, also known as hives, weal’s, welts or nettle rash. The main symptom is raised blotchy rash which can be intensely itchy. Its cause is unknown, although it can be triggered by an allergen, physical triggers, underlying health conditions or drugs. Several serious conditions can lead to anaphylaxis which is a medical emergency. Chronic urticaria can be difficult to manage hence there are different approaches for its management. Many still use unlicensed medications to control the condition. We are putting forward a practical approach in the management of this challenging medical problem.
