The Major Causes Of Urticaria, As Documented If you try looking through medical literature, you are bound to come across many items devoted to the causes of urticaria. We'll try to discuss these causes further. This is our opportunity to look further into what really brings about this condition. Urticaria itself is a condition that goes by the common name of 'hives.' It is basically a skin rash, but what is unique about it is the fact that it presents with (skin) bumps that tend to itch. Red in color, these rashes are raised from the skin, making them easily noticeable as skin bumps. To make things easier for us, there are two major classifications of the major cause of urticaria. The first category is composed of those causes that are of an allergic nature. Meanwhile, the second classification is where the causes that are other than allergic reactions fall under. For some people, contracting urticaria is as easy as simply being in one place where exposure to certain substances is high. Those are the cases where urticaria is said to be presenting due to allergic causes. There are also medications that cause urticaria in the person who takes them. Drug-induced urticaria is not unheard of; in fact, they are quite common. Some of the drugs used to control day to day pains, as well as some of the more potent medications used in the management of diabetes and convulsions have been known to induce urticaria in some people. Urticaria is actually a common side effect among a number of medications now available in the market. But you will notice that these medications are specifically for the treatment of severe and life-threatening conditions. But side effects are often ignored in favor of the fact that these medications are used to cure a greater ill or sickness. That's why they are willing to live with urticaria. Now let us take a look at the non-allergic causes of urticaria. We all know that allergic reactions and allergies are not the only reason why urticaria develops. When people scratch their skin, it is possible that they can immediately develop urticaria. Other people are actually very sensitive that firm stroking could actually give rise to urticaria. In fact, it is now established that there are certain people who can have urticaria simply from rubbing their skin. As far as non-allergic causes go, rough pressure or firm stroking of the skin is not the only cause of urticaria appearing in some people. Drastic and extreme changes in temperature actually causes urticaria in some people. We can classify them as either cold-induced urticaria and heat- induced urticaria. Aside from temperatures, urticaria can also be caused by exposure to water. For this problem, they can simply buy many of the available creams in the market that are specifically developed for just that purpose. Finally, we have people who are known to exhibit signs of urticaria upon being exposed to the sun. This condition is called solar urticaria.
