Chronic urticaria, defined as urticaria that persists for longer than 6 weeks, is a frustrating condition for both patients and caregivers. Urticaria is not a single disease but a reaction pattern that represents cutaneous mast cell degranulation, resulting in extravasation of plasma into the dermis. Urticaria is characterized by hives or wheals, which are edematous pruritic papules or plaques. The variety of potential triggers of urticaria, especially for acute urticaria, can make the approach to diagnosis and treatment a challenge. Patients with chronic urticaria may not improve or may depend on medication for years to relieve symptoms.
