Are you looking for chronic hives treatment?
Then you have come to the right place. Before explaining the details of
chronic hives treatment,
let us understand chronic hives and how they develop.
Hives are skin rashes that may appear on any part of the
skin due to allergic as well as non-allergic reasons. These rashes are
evident by the presence of wheals that are usually red or pale yellow
and extremely itchy. Chronic hives last longer than six weeks and are
very distressing to the patient.
Treat Chronic Hives
Before treating chronic hives, it is important to
understand the causes and triggers. If you succeed in avoiding the
causes and triggers, half of your problem is solved.
Chronic Hives Causes
Most cases of chronic hives have an unknown cause;
however, there are numerous known causes for this skin problem:
- Chronic hives may be
caused by certain drugs, such as aspirin, ACE inhibitors, opioids,
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, and alcohol.
- Contact with certain
offending factors including some plants, latex, animals, and certain
foods, such as fish, garlic, onions, and tomato. Other suspect
foods include eggs, wheat, and nuts.
- Certain viral
infections, including the hepatitis B virus, mycobacterium
tuberculosis, and herpes simplex virus.
- Many patients
have an autoimmune condition, such as autoimmune thyroid disease.
- A recent Italian
study reported that there is a link between chronic hives and
fibromyalgia, and chronic hives is a consequence of
fibromyalgia-neurogenic skin inflammation.
- Emotional factors
such as stress.
- It can be a genetic
disease, which is inherited by the patient.
Treatment for Chronic Hives
Chronic hives can be a serious problem. You may need to
consult a hives specialist in order to obtain permanent relief.
However, you can do certain things to minimize the itching and
pain. Using antihistamines, including telfast, diphenhydramine,
hydroxyzine, cetirizine, and other H1 receptor antagonists
can help relieve the symptoms of chronic hives. Applying calamine
lotion or cool compresses to the affected area reduces the burning
sensation. Drinking nettle tea or peppermint tea may help to
soothe the throat. Exposing the affected skin to fresh and cool air may
also help to relieve symptoms.
Chronic Idiopathic Hives
In most cases, an unknown
(idiopathic) cause is responsible for chronic
hives. However, nearly 40% of patients with chronic hives have an
autoimmune condition. This can occur when the body's natural defense
system is disturbed and releases fluid called histamine into the skin,
which causes hives.
