physical urticariaPhysical urticaria is another form of hives and is brought on by some sort of allergic reaction from the environment and it often results in skin turning red and becoming itchy like a rash. Welts may appear on the skin as well and there are a number of environmental factors that can contribute to this type of outbreak including the sun. There are several other factors that can lead to these outbreaks including cold temperatures, sweat, the sun, pressure, and other factors. These hives will typically go away on their own over time so the main thing is to eliminate the itching before a person scratches their skin raw. There are a number of oral treatments and topical creams that can be used and phototherapy is often times used.

Hives come from histamine that is released into the bloodstream resulting in an allergic reaction to something. There are certain areas where it gathers and this is what causes the welts and the itching rash. There are many people who experience allergic reactions to certain triggers in the environment. There is no definite reason as to why this may occur.

Types of physical urticaria

Aquagenic Urticaria

One rare form of physical urticaria is known as aquagenic urticaria and this is where water exposure leads to allergic reactions. However, the temperature of the water isn’t a factor in the reaction on the skin. Water can be either cold or even warm but there is still a reaction.

Solar Urticaria

Yet another rare form of Physical Urticaria is from the sunlight. If solar urticaria is present in an individual, an itchy rash is developed where the sun hits and to help avoid this make sure you avoid the sun or keep yourself covered. This can be with sunscreen or hats and proper clothing.

Delayed Pressure Urticaria

This is another form and is caused from delayed pressure for a set amount of time. For example, if someone has a seatbelt on that is too tight around their waist they may develop some sort of symptoms after a period of time. This will typically show its head about 4-6 hours after the fact of the pressure being applied.

Cold-Induced Urticaria

This is something that is not very common and this occurs when the skin is exposed to cooler temperatures. This means that when your skin is exposed to cold conditions such as snow, rain, or wind hives may set in. However, medical professionals are not sure if the cold is what triggers these hives or if it occurs when the skin gets warmer. You can either experience the rash in a localized area or they can be across larger areas of the body.

These types of physical urticaria have no cure to them and there are some people that find a number of over the counter medications to take to help suppress the symptoms. There are anti-histamines that can help with the itching and there are lotions that can help with the itching as well.



We would like to thank Nadia for her great post on Physical Urticaria. Although everything Nadia has written about the condition we still believe that the urticaria outbreaks are actually a symptom of an underlying condition which we believe to be autoimmune disease.

What is Giant Urticaria

What is Giant Urticaria?

See also: Chronic urticaria

Giant Urticaria involves deeper tissues of skin and involves them swelling up under the skin in addition to the mucous membrane. Tissues are swollen with this condition and sufferers may experience abdominal pain as well as a swollen voice box. This often comes from an allergic reaction to either food or drugs, but can also accompany chronic urticaria. This can also be referred to as angioneurotic edema, Quincke’s edema, Quincke’s disease, or even angioedema.

giant urticariaWhat Are the Symptoms of Giant Urticaria?

There are several symptoms that patients may begin to notice with this condition. Hives are red areas on the skin that are itchy and can start as small red areas on the skin. If pressure is applied to them they begin to disappear in a day or so, but there are certain things that can cause extreme irritation of them.

While with angioedema redness is not going to be as obvious, but the swelling is going to be there. Swelling can occur on the toes as well as the fingers and even in areas such as the face, neck, and reproductive organs in men. These areas can experience pain and slight burning as well.

There are a number of types of hives and each one can last a different length of time. With angioedema the swelling can often last for a day or two at a time, sometimes longer. If the condition persists, then it is classed as chronic, anything that lasts longer than that is often referred to as chronic.

Causes of Giant Urticaria

As we have mentioned many times before the reason for chronic urticaria is usually classed as being ‘idiopathic’ which basically means that there is no obvious cause or reason for the continued outbreaks. Angioedema or Giant urticaria is the same when linked to chronic urticaria outbreaks. Having said that we do firmly believe that most persistent cases are symptoms of an underlying autoimmune condition, and we are not alone in this theory!.

The process of histamine release works in much the same way for angioedema (Giant Urticaria) as it does for chronic urticaria, however with angioedema the swelling occurs in the lower level of the skin. This causes the skin to really swell, even balloon.


Treating Hives & Angioedema

There are a number of ways to treat hives as we have mentioned but as I’m sure your already aware most of these so called urticaria treatments are just symptomatic and only provide short term relief from the irritation. There is also little in the way of treatments for angioedema when the condition accompanies chronic urticaria outbreaks.

While most cases of angioedema (giant urticaria) are not serious when arising as a secondary urticaria condition, it’s important to remember that any swelling around the mouth, front of the neck or throat can be potentially lethal, as the swelling can potentially obstruct airways making it impossible to breath.

If angioedema often accompanies your chronic urticaria outbreaks we would suggest you at least mention this to your doctor. Your doctor won’t be able to help you stop these outbreaks, but they will be able to prescribe an epinephrine autoinjector otherwise known as an Epipen.

Here’s a link to a better description of what an Epipen does and how it works:

If you suffer with Angioedema linked to chronic urticaria, then the best way to get rid of your condition is to address the underlying reason for the outbreaks. It’s possible to do this by reversing certain aspects thought to trigger the autoimmunity which is most likely the reason for chronic urticaria and Giant Urticaria when linked to CIU.

What is Chronic Urticaria

What is Chronic Urticaria?

chronic urticariaChronic Urticaria is also referred to as chronic hives and consists of the skin having blotches of raised itchy welts that are red or white in color. They come in a number of sizes and appear just as fast as they disappear. Most cases will disappear in a matter of weeks but severe cases may last a bit longer.

This can be something long-term for many people and is never fun to deal with. Chronic hives are usually determined as being chronic when they last for 6 weeks or more. That doesn’t mean they have to be visible on the skin for 6 weeks, what it actually means is that the urticaria keeps affecting the sufferer for the period. They may come and go but are pretty much consistent and recurring.

Typically, the cause is never defined or identified, so most cases of chronic urticaria are actually called chronic idiopathic urticaria, Idiopathic means that there is no obvious reason. Typical cases of chronic idiopathic urticaria come from an underlying autoimmune disease.

Your search for a chronic urticaria treatment

Before you start your search for a chronic urticaria treatment which provides permanent relief you may want to rule out two common underlying autoimmune conditions which are often linked to chronic urticaria. The two conditions in question are lupus and thyroid issues.

The cause is of chronic urticaria is still very unclear, and traditional urticaria treatments are limited and only really block histamine release which just takes away the irritation.

What to Look for

There are a few things that you can look for to determine if you are breaking out in hives including:

  • Small round wheals, large patches, or rings that change their shape
  • Red flare blotches that itch
  • Batches of welts that appear on extremities or the face or upper torso.

Some hives can last just a few hours while others can last weeks. However, as the old hives begin to disappear new ones may follow behind. For the most part, people with chronic urticaria may also suffer with angioedema.

The indicators that come with angioedema can include welts on the face especially around the lips and eyes. The swelling as a result of angioedema is normally far more severe as the swelling occurs lower in the dermis.

Swelling caused by angioedema can in some cases affect the throat which can cause an obstruction in breathing. In severe cases emergency measures are needed.

What is Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria?

What is Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria?

See also: Chronic hives

Simply put, Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria is hives, however the bad part is, there isn’t a known cause for the condition. Additionally Idiopathic Urticaria is normally a chronic condition which means that it can last for extended periods of time, sometimes even years. Not only can Idiopathic Urticaria cause itching, but suffering with it can be demoralizing, embarrassing and over long periods depressing.

Hives are normally associated with an allergic reaction to something which causes excess histamine to be released in order to combat the allergen, however in cases of chronic idiopathic urticaria this natural process often gets out of hand leaving some sufferers covered in urticarial wheels almost daily.

Chronic idiopathic urticaria relief:

chronic idiopathic urticariaThis is something that most dermatologists find baffling and without a definite cause it’s almost impossible to give patients something to cure chronic idiopathic urticaria. The only option for many is to use medication which might provide relief from the irritation. This often leads patients to suffer for extended periods of time and because of the constant itching & raised wheels, skin becomes scarred and damaged. This can lead to depression because the sufferer is always miserable and embarrassed by the appearance of their skin

However, over the years there has been a lot of advancement in diagnosing and treating Idiopathic Urticaria, and there are several medical professionals that feel this disorder comes from an autoimmune disorder, many even suggest that some cases of chronic idiopathic urticaria is linked to an autoimmune disease called lupus. This is something found in 30-50% of all sufferers and this is when testing for this disorder becomes prevalent in determining how to treat chronic hives.

With an autoimmune disease the body begins attacking itself and chronic urticaria has become a common symptom of this. Because treatments vary from one case to the next, curing urticaria sufferers becomes difficult, challenging and for many impossible, at least when using traditional treatment methods.

Can you control chronic idiopathic urticaria

Many people who suffer repeatedly with chronic idiopathic urticaria attempt to control their condition by avoiding certain items which they consider to be allergens. While this method can provide some relief it usually ends up being pointless as allergens of stimuli may change, plus the process of urticaria outbreaks is more complex in chronic idiopathic urticaria cases as opposed to the kind of urticaria outbreaks which most people suffer from.

If you have been suffering for a while with repeated urticaria outbreaks without any obvious reason, then it may be that you are suffering with chronic idiopathic urticaria which is most likely linked to an underlying autoimmune disorder. If this is you, then the only way to really get rid of hives is to address the underlying condition.

We have put together a natural step by step method for achieving this. It’s called ‘Get Rid of Hives’, and we believe its perfect for treating chronic idiopathic urticaria  if you would like to learn more please visit our Home page.

Chronic Urticaria Treatment

Ever asked yourself if there really is a chronic urticaria treatment, I mean a method which when applied will get rid of hives outbreaks permanently?.

Chronic Urticaria TreatmentI’m willing to bet that if you do suffer with chronic urticaria you will have asked yourself that question more than once, I know I did. Perhaps like me you have already tried lots of methods which are advertised as a cure for hives only to find out that they just don’t work.

It’s frustrating isn’t it? I know just how you feel, I spent years looking for a chronic urticaria treatment, I looked everywhere and tried just about everything, or at least everything that I came across at the time.

I even tried a number of natural urticaria treatments which are always floating about. Perhaps you have come across one or two of them yourself, maybe even tried a few. If you have, I’m sure there are lots of people reading this post who would love to hear about what you tried and maybe even which natural urticaria treatment actually worked for you?

Our Chronic Urticaria Treatment;

I’ll get the ball rolling with a natural chronic urticaria treatment method which I tried. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me, but as I explained above it may work for you, so hear go’s.

Cats Claw

No that doesn’t mean an actual cat’s claw. Cats claw in this case refers to a supplement which I heard was very beneficial for many immune related conditions, some say it even helps people with cancer, but who knows.

Here’s a quick description of the supplement and where it’s derived from

Cats claw is taken from the roots of a Peruvian vine. The vine is known to be rich in alkaloid compounds that provide natural nutritional support for a healthy immune system. The recommended dosage is 2 500mg supplements a day (that’s what was stated on the supplement packaging I used).

I could write a few paragraphs on how this supplement is supposed to help you & how it could be considered as a chronic urticaria treatment but I figured there is already much written about Cats Claw, so instead I’m linking to the following article – WebMD

Although the article linked too does not talk specifically about cats claw being used as a chronic urticaria treatment it does talk about how the herb may be beneficial for people suffering with immune problem and inflammation.

 Chronic Urticaria Treatment – Did it work for you?

Cats claw didn’t work for me but it might for you. It might work better still if combined with something else. Let us know your thoughts on using cat’s claw as a chronic urticaria treatment, plus share your natural urticaria treatment methods here for everyone to see.

What Causes Hives Urticaria

Well, that’s a good question and one which I often asked myself and sought an answer too. To be honest much of what you read and what so called professionals tell you about what causes hives is at least flawed and in many cases completely wrong.

If you explain to someone, anyone that you suffer with hives they will instantly think of a typical skin allergy. Those same people will more than likely think that the reason for hives outbreaks is simply as a result of coming into contact with an allergen.

And while this simple observation is correct for a huge number of cases it is not always correct, well not entirely, let me explain why. Many people will at some time in their lives suffer with a minor hives urticaria outbreak, it’s really very common, and yes it is normally as the result of coming into contact with an allergen.

Chronic urticaria or chronic idiopathic urticaria

But there are those of us who suffer with a more severe and consistent form of urticaria (hives) which is called chronic urticaria or chronic idiopathic urticaria. If that’s you then the question of what causes hives urticaria becomes ever more important and unfortunately very hard to determine.

Like you I suffered with CIU and desperately wanted to know what caused hives so I could avoid whatever it was that triggered the condition. But when I eventually found the answer, stopping or treating my urticarial became a whole lot harder.

You see if you are like me, and I’m guessing you are as your reading this post, then simply avoiding certain things or allergens in order to stop hives outbreaks just won’t work. Why, because what we really suffer with is an autoimmune disorder which for some reason has been triggered and become active.


The question of what causes hives becomes irrelevant as the real reason for your urticaria or should I say CIU is actually an autoimmune disorder. It’s still true that many things will cause hive outbreaks but they are not the cause of urticaria, they are simply triggers. Even if you knew what all of these triggers were and spent your life avoiding them you would still suffer with chronic urticaria outbreaks. The triggers can change almost daily, the only real way of treating chronic urticaria is to focus on switching off the autoimmune disorder.

Of course that’s just a metaphorical switch, if you really want to address the autoimmune condition you need to reverse the elements or factors which activated the condition initially. I was lucky enough to find such a method which did work for me, and does work for an awful lot of people who try it. Of course it’s not a cure for hives, nothing is when it comes to chronic hives, it’s not even an exact science, but it is perhaps the best way of stopping further hives outbreaks on a permanent basis.

So in my opinion, if you suffer with chronic urticaria you should stop asking the question ‘What causes hives’ and concentrate on addressing the underlying reason for your condition.

Natural Urticaria ReliefThe need for Natural Urticaria Relief

Sometimes a person has allergies, and the problem with being sensitive to certain things like pollen, dust, or pet dander, is that a person can suddenly break out in skin hives, also known as urticaria.

The surface of the skin can be covered in small to medium size bumps that can be extremely itchy, and a person with hives all over their body can be very hard to deal with especially when a breakout occurs. Anyone that suffers from allergies can either take allergy medication to help relieve those hives, but the best way to get rid of hives might be a more natural approach. Here is more information on natural ways to relieve hives.

Natural Urticaria Relief Tips

Cooling down the surface of the skin:

When an outbreak of hives occurs, the whole area of the skin where the bumps are can become very warm to the touch and itchy. To help relieve the itching and burning, soaking a wash-cloth in water that has a few ice cubes in it, and laying it over the area can cool the skin down and the bumps will go away.


Tea can cure many things:

Did you know that tea is a natural remedy for many conditions? Tea can even help alleviate the discomfort of skin rashes. There are many kinds of tea like chamomile, that is a common treatment to treat urticarial, and many people have found drinking tea often has helped control how often they break out in hives.


Bathwater that is sprinkled with oatmeal:

There is nothing more uncomfortable than breaking out in hives. The red bumps can be extremely itchy. When the skin itches so bad you cannot stand it, then the best way to get rid of that itch is to take a soothing oatmeal bath. The best temperature to have the water at is luke warm and two to three handfuls of oatmeal added to the water works best.


Aloe vera can provide relief:

Aloe vera can treat anything that happens to the skin from hives to sunburns. A bottle of pure aloe vera gel can be brought in a drug store, or simply snap off a branch, split it open, and spread the green gel in it all over the area that contains the hives. The skin will feel much cooler and the bumps will vanish.

Skin hives can be a reaction to something in the air, or something a person with allergies may eat or drink. There are many remedies you can use as natural urticaria relief , but the best way to get rid of hives may be to try a more natural way to prevent breaking out, and to relieve the itching and burning if you do.

Guest Post By: William

How can I get rid of hives?” If you have ever asked yourself that question, you must know how difficult it is to find a workable solution for this problem. This article will list natural remedies, types of medical treatment and presentational means that you can use to successfully get rid of hives at home.

Medically known as uriticaria, hives are an itchy, red skin rash that appears on your skin that may disappear and reappear elsewhere several times throughout the day. From small pen-sized patches to rashes that cover large areas of your body, this condition is a source of huge discomfort, and arms, legs, neck, armpits, and abdomen are the most likely spots of its onset.

If you want to know how you can get rid of hives, keep reading for some of the steps that can help you alleviate your problem.

Chronic Hives

When the most glaring symptoms of the condition are present daily for over six weeks, it’s considered to be a case of chronic hives. The situation is made more complicated by the fact that doctors are often unable to pinpoint the underlying issues that have prompted the rash, in which case the causes are labeled as idiopathic.

The most straightforward and effective way of getting rid of hives from the comfort of your home is resolving the problem that caused it in the first place.

How Can I Get Rid of Hives Caused by Allergies?

A very likely cause of hives is an allergic reaction. To deal with such cases, you should try to eliminate the reason for your allergies. Be it food, drinks, a pet, someone’s perfume, chemical substances in the air or something else entirely, take active steps to avoid it. Alternatively, you can take anti-allergic medication prescribed by a doctor.

However, not all cases are as easy to deal with. There is no simple answer to treating idiopathic uriticaria, because every individual case is different and requires its own unique solution. To get rid of hives that are brought on by causes you’re not specifically aware of, you can try some of the following forms of treatment.

Natural Remedies to get rid of hives

Oils are known to provide some relief to the strong itching sensation usually caused by hives. The soothing effect of sandalwood, lavender and chamomile will make a big difference to those who have suffered from this condition for a prolonged amount of time.

Another useful advice for those who want to know how can they get rid of hives naturally is to pay more attention to your diet. Uriticaria outbreaks are usually brought on by a disturbance in the bacterial balance of your body, and resolving it can provide an effective remedial effect.

Medical Urticaria Treatment

Even though the medical solution to each case can be very different, using both ranitidine and cetirizine has show to provide a lasting solution to get rid of hives. Prednisone is also mentioned as an effective medication for hive treatment, but the side effects that present themselves after its prolonged use deter most people from its continued use.

If you’re going for a soothing effect, antihistamines can effectively decrease swelling and redness, saving you from the incredibly strong itching that plagues most people who suffer from hives.

Prevention of Hives

Make sure that you avoid the following things that can potentially cause hives.

  • Sudden changes of temperature.
  • Excessive use of alcohol.
  • Using too much medications, such as aspirin.
  • Insufficient sleep and stress.
  • Extreme changes of your usual diet.

Since 20% of people are subjected to an outbreak of hives at some point in their lives, it’s important to minimize their risk at all times. Keep your immune system strong and have a balanced diet that would supply your body’s natural defence mechanisms with all the required nutrients and vitamins. Heed this advice and you will never have to ask how can you get rid of hives.
