Urticaria is a heterogeneous group of diseases. Wheals and angioedema are the signature signs and itch is the key symptom. Most cases of urticaria resolve within days. Those that do not tend to be of long duration and associated with severely impaired quality of life. Some patients with chronic urticaria develop wheals and angioedema exclusively in response to specific triggers (inducible urticaria), but most do not (spontaneous urticaria). The aim of chronic urticaria management is complete relief of signs and symptoms, which is often achieved by symptomatic rather than curative treatment. Modern, second generation H1-antihistamines are the first line therapy.
