Vibratory Angioedema - How to Treat Angioedema

It might sound strange but it is a fact that vibratory angioedema has nothing to do with angioedema itself, rather it is a form of physical urticaria (or physical hives). How to treat angioedema is the first question that comes into mind of the person experiencing this bizarre skin problem. You will find the answer to this question at the end of this guide in form of simple guidelines for angioedema treatment.

Vibratory angioedema can be an inherited problem or it can be acquired in response to a prolonged exposure to vibration. It is an extremely rare condition in which the skin produces a hypersensitivity reaction to an extended exposure of unremitting vibration. The most obvious symptoms are central wheals, blanched skin, pruritus or raised rashes.

A person prone to vibratory angioedema may develop it from the factors that are normally harmless. These factors cause continuous vibration on the skin e.g. driving a motor bike continuously for a long time, operating such a mechanical instrument e.g. a lawnmower, or vigorously rubbing your skin with rough stimuli e.g. a towel.

The symptoms usually take five to ten minutes to appear after coming in contact with the offending stimuli. The wheals can be itchy in nature and usually fade away within thirty minutes to one hour after their outbreak and no typical treatment is required. To stay safe, the individuals prone to vibratory angioedema should avoid such stimuli.

These simple guidelines are the answer to the question given at the start of this guide i.e. how to treat angioedema.

  • Consult a qualified doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment.

  • Urine and blood test should be conducted to find whether you are infected with angioedema or not.

  • Avoid the allergens and triggering factors.

  • Epinephrine is a life saving drug especially in case of acquired angioedema.

  • Certain therapies of antihistamines are typically used to counter the effect of histamines, especially in cases where autoimmune reaction is the cause of angioedema.
