Interesting Case of the Month

Interesting Case —Urticaria (Hives)

Linear ImmunoglobulinA Bullous Dermatosis - Treated at Florida Skin Center
Urticaria (Hives)

This is one of our pediatric patients that was brought in by his mother. She was concerned because he had been getting lesions on his body that are itchy and come and go.  They started on his legs but then moved to the groin and up the hands and forearms.

What does this patient have? Read More >

Urticaria can look many different ways.  Urticaria, for the most part appear as red, swollen bumps or welts that appear suddenly on the skin and are extremely itchy. Hives occur when there is a release of histamine into the blood. They can appear anywhere on the body.  We become more concerend when they appear around the mouth or face because it could lead to a condition called angiodedema, which is deep swelling that can cause the throat to swell causing difficulty to breathe.

The cause of urticaria can be widespread.  Allergic reactions, foods, chemicals, medications, sun expsoure, bug bites are all potential causes.  More times than not, the acutal cause of urticaria may never be found.  However with treatment, urticaria will generally resolve within a few days to weeks.

This patient was treated with an oral antihistamine medication and an oral antiinflammatory medicaion called orapred.  We had him come in for a follow up in 10 days. At that appointment, the urticaria were resolving.

Medical Terms

Histamine

A substance that plays a major role in many allergic reactions, dilating blood vessels and making the vessel walls abnormally permeable. Histamine is part of the body's natural allergic response to substances such as pollens. Antihistamines work by preventing the release of histamine from certain cells thereby blocking the allergic reaction.
