How to Treat Urticaria General?

Things to note:
  • Limit exposure to triggers such as non-immune mast cell degranulators, which aggravate and prolong urticaria, e.g. codeine, NSAIDs, salicylates, alcohol, etc.

Medical Treatment:
Antihistamines :
  • Regular use is recommended until the urticaria is quiescent. If one antihistamine does not provide relief, change to, or add another class of antihistamine.
For chronic urticaria less sedating antihistamines are preferable.
  • Cetirizine, oral, 10 mg daily.
    Avoid oral corticosteroids.
