Natural TreatmentUrticaria is a raised, itchy rash that appears on the skin. The rash can be limited to one part of the body or spread across large areas of the body.Urticaria can develop gradually or suddenly, and can be widespread throughout the body, or be centralized in a particular area.The appearance of urticaria is usually due to an allergic reaction and can be caused by direct contact with an irritant. Urticaria can also develop among those with autoimmune disorders such as lupus. Urticaria is not contagious, and it cannot be passed along from skin to skin contact.There are many food allergens which trigger urticaria, which is why it’s especially critical to pinpoint whether one may be allergic to a specific food. Some of the most common food allergies include nuts, peanut butter, fish, eggs, milk, dairy, citrus and wheat products.Other common causes of urticaria can include pet dander, pollen, dust, outdoor allergens, mites, insect bites, chemicals and latex products. Additionally, an individual may develop urticaria when exposed to stressful situations. Usually, in these instances, the rash will disappear once the stressful event is over.These substances cause the blood vessels in the affected area of skin to open up (often causing redness or pinkness) and become leaky. This extra fluid in the tissues causes swelling and sometimes itchiness.In most cases of long-term urticaria, there is no obvious cause. However, most experts think it’s often caused by the immune system mistakenly attacking healthy tissue. Certain triggers make the symptoms worse, such as:
drinking alcohol or caffeine
