Skin allergies are quite common today and it is easier for people to pop an anti-allergic pill to get relief from constant itching and unsightly eruptions. Urticaria (or hives) is one such skin condition, commonly caused by an allergic reaction that is characterised by raised red weals.
Dr. S.P.S. Bakshi, CMD Bakson Group, says that skin is an outward expression of our internal imbalances that exhibit themselves in the form of eruptions or itching.
The root cause behind this indisposition is endogenic /hereditary allergy that makes a person prone to various skin ailments.
Included in this group is urticaria.
The release of chemicals from mast cells in the skin causes small blood vessels to leak and result in tissue swelling called weals. They can be a few millimetres or several centimetres in diameter, coloured white or red, often surrounded by a red flare and frequently itchy.
Dr. Bakshi has observed that common skin diseases can alternate in a patient’s life with problems like asthma, digestive upsets and even joint problems.
Thus it is all the more imperative to treat the case carefully to avoid suppression.
Many patients think that changing their diet, or the soap, detergent and makeup they use can cure them of such allergies like hives. But they are not usually helpful.
Commonly prescribed anti-histamines and steroids are short term relievers and continuous in take of such measures may result in side effects.
