For a better understanding of autoimmune hives,
will describe the terms separately in the next section. Here is a
simple and basic definition of this bizarre skin problem. Auto
immune hives is a skin problem found in patients that develop hives
due to an autoimmune trigger, i.e. different antibodies. Mast cells are
widespread in the skin and contain certain fluids. When they are
disturbed by an autoimmune trigger, they release a fluid called
histamine into the skin, which causes hives.
Swelling, redness, and itching caused
by autoimmune disorders is called autoimmune hives.
These autoimmune disorders are characterized as the malfunction of the
immune system, which causes it to attack itself. Such patients develop
auto-antibodies directed at the receptor FceRI located on skin mast
cells. Its treatment is similar to the
allergic hives treatment.
Autoimmune hives can be characterized by many different
symptoms, including raised blanched wheals, anaphylactic reaction,
pruritis, angioedema, and rapid onset.
Hives and Autoimmune
Here is a simple definition of the two terms: hives and
Hives (urticaria) is a skin disorder and appears as
white or red erupted portions of skin that are usually itchy in
nature. The eruptions can be of various sizes and shapes.
Immune is a defense system in living organisms of
biological structures and processes that protects against different
disease by identifying and killing the path. Sometimes this immune
system can go awry and start damaging the body it is supposed to
protect. This process is called autoimmune. Autoimmunity is the failure
of an organism to recognize its own constituent parts as self, which
allows an immune response against its own cells and tissues.
Now you understand both the terms, so if you develop
hives due to autoimmune disorders, it is called autoimmune hives.
