Idiopathic Angioedema - Idiopathic Urticaria Angioedema

The most annoying form of angioedema is idiopathic urticaria angioedema or idiopathic angioedema as it occurs due to unknown causes. However, need worry not as this article will help you a great deal in understanding the situation and how you can cope with it. For a better understanding, let us understand the terms first separately: idiopathic urticaria angioedema.

Idiopathic means relating to, or designating a disease having no known cause. Urticaria is a skin rash characterized by occurring of red wheals, in response to allergic or non-allergic factors, which are usually itchy in nature. Angioedema is rapid swelling of skin, usually around lips and eyes, in response to allergic as well as non-allergic causes. So idiopathic angioedema is a type of angioedema with no known causes.

Idiopathic Angioedema Treatment

Idiopathic angioedema treatment is more difficult due to the fact that actual cause of the disease is unknown. In some cases standard skin tests can reveal the allergen, however, this method is hardly ever successful as the cause are often deep rooted.

As allergens or triggers can be a certain type of food, so a practicable approach is an elimination diet, however it is a long and time taking process. It is based on the exclusion of certain type of food or product from the everyday menu of the patient and see the response and this process is repeated with other food items.

The reasons for idiopathic angioedema are disreputably hard to identify because different kind of allergens are all around us, in the air we breathe in, in the water we drink. Certain seasons or climates may also be a factor.

Epinephrine has been a great success in case of acquired angioedema treatment, but in hereditary angioedema results may vary. Furthermore, in acquired angioedema antifibrinolytics such as tranexamic acid, hereditary angioedema types I and II, and non-histaminergic angioedema may be of use.

Certain therapies e.g. airway management can also be practices. Common patients not very sever conditions can be treated the same way as those of allergic angioedema. However, sever cases require intake of epinephrine, H1 and H2 blockers, and steroids in addition to the intake of antihistamines.
