Autoimmune Hives - Auto Immune Hives

For a better understanding of autoimmune hives, I 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 autoimmune.

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.
