The aim of this book is to focus on the urticaria. Urticaria (hives) is a vascular reaction of the skin marked by the transient appearance of smooth, slightly elevated papules or plaques (wheals) that are erythematous and that are often attended by severe pruritus. Urticaria is a very common symptom and most people encounter this problem in their life, some having more symptoms than other. The treatment of urticaria has evolved over many years and each year—newer and effective drugs are indicated for its management. Autoimmunity plays a major role in causation of urticaria. Advent of biologics has changed the dynamics of treatment strategies of urticaria. This book covers the classification of urticaria, diagnosis of urticaria, contact urticaria, chronic inducible urticaria, angioedema, cutaneous mastocytosis, pharmacology of antihistamines, and treatment of chronic spontaneous urticaria. The book is concise book for ready reference. This book is meant to be companion of busy practicing dermatologists, residents and family physicians.
