Urticaria Evaluation: Identifying the Triggers

Accurate diagnosis is the first step toward effective treatment. Our specialized urticaria evaluation process includes:

  1. Comprehensive Assessment: During your initial consultation, our allergists will conduct a detailed evaluation of your medical history and urticaria symptoms, which often involve raised, itchy welts or hives on the skin.
  2. Trigger Identification: Identifying the underlying causes or triggers of your urticaria is crucial. We will work with you to identify potential allergens, irritants, medications, or underlying medical conditions that may be contributing to your hives.
  3. Testing: To pinpoint potential allergens or other triggers, we may perform specific tests, including skin prick tests, blood tests, or other diagnostic evaluations as needed.
  4. Customized Assessment: Based on the results of your evaluation and the severity of your urticaria, our allergists will provide you with a personalized assessment and a tailored treatment plan.

Urticaria Treatment: Finding Relief from Itching and Swelling

Once we’ve identified the triggers or underlying causes of your urticaria, our Adult & Children Allergy-Asthma Center offers a range of effective treatment options to help you manage and alleviate your symptoms:

  1. Allergen/Irritant Avoidance: We provide guidance on avoiding exposure to known triggers, which may include certain foods, medications, environmental allergens, or other factors that exacerbate your hives.
  2. Antihistamines: For mild to moderate urticaria, over-the-counter or prescription antihistamines are often recommended to relieve itching and reduce the appearance of hives.
  3. Other Medications: In some cases, other medications such as corticosteroids, leukotriene modifiers, or immune-suppressing drugs may be prescribed to manage severe or chronic urticaria.
  4. Education: We offer comprehensive education on urticaria triggers, prevention strategies, and lifestyle adjustments to minimize the recurrence of hives.
