Cold Angioedema - Angioedema Allergies

This article explains Cold Angioedema and some common Angioedema Allergies. To make it simple for you I am dividing this article into two virtual parts: the first one explains cold angioedema and the second one is about most commonly found Angioedema Allergies and how they can affect you. In the end there are some valuable tips for idiopathic angioedema treatment.

Cold angioedema, sometimes also referred to as cold induced angioedema, is a subtype of physical induced angioedema and just like its other co-subtypes; it is also caused by a physical agent i.e. cold. Recent reports have revealed that cold angioedema has a close association with paroxysmal cold hemoglobinuria, cryofibrinogenemia, and also cold agglutinin disease. If you are suffering from cold angioedema and it is accompanied by any of the previously mentioned disease, you should consult a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Most of the angioedema allergies occur in response to different allergens. People, especially with hereditary angioedema, need to avoid these allergens but unluckily this is not an easy job to do. The reason is that allergens are present all around us, in the air we breathe in, the water we drink etc. However, taking certain precautionary measures can help reduce the chances of its occurrence.

There are many drugs e.g. Beta blockers, ACE-inhibitors Aspirin and NSAIDs and many food items e.g. wheat, eggs, peanuts can also act as allergen and trigger angioedema allergies. These drugs should be avoided as much as possible by the patient and a comprehensive list can be prepared with the help of a professional doctor.

Idiopathic Angioedema Treatment

Though idiopathic angioedema treatment is a tough row to hoe yet certain therapies e.g. airway management, certain drugs i.e. antihistamines can help. The first thing to do is have all the necessary tests and avoid all the allergens and triggers.

Patients who do not have severe conditions can be treated the same way as those of allergic angioedema. However, severe cases require intake of epinephrine, H1 and H2 blockers, and steroids in addition to the intake of antihistamines. Epinephrine has been a great success in case of acquired angioedema treatment, but in hereditary angioedema results may vary.
