Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria-The Main Reason For Our Ongoing Urticaria .. Part 2

The term chronic idiopathic utricaria is used to describe the condition shared by many of us, what it basically means is an ongoing chronic urticaria (hives) condition which has no obvious or known trigger.

Chronic urticaria-Pills Won't work

The truth is there may be lots of triggers which bring on repeated episodes of urticaria, unfortunately as far as traditional medicine is concerned, Chronic Urticaria is still categorised as little more than an allergy, which I have to say really annoyed me, sure an allergy is a trivial thing, but when your face and head is covered in wheels and lumps on an almost daily basis, well then I think it’s gone way past being a simple allergy.


If any of this is sounding familiar, then you probably got tired of the inadequate medical help, I was taking Antihistamine for years on a daily basis which in the end offered no relief at all.

Prescribed steroids helped for a while, but we all know that you cant keep taking those things, plus they gave me a bloated face like a goldfish holding it’s breath.

Chronic Urticaria-Quick Fix

Cortisone shots, they really do take down the swelling, and although too many aren’t good for you, I did pester my doctor on a few occasions for a shot, reluctantly he obliged.

But these are all quick fixes to a problem which lies much deeper. Chronic Idiopathic Urticaria is for many (including me) a result of something called Autoimmune disease (disorder). It still takes something to trigger the condition hence the allergy connection.

I’m sure there are a few Doctors or professionals who will read this and say ?what rubbish?, & perhaps I am barking up the wrong tree, but I’m the one who lived with chronic urticaria daily for years before I learned how to address the underlying problems.

Let me know your thoughts, please leave your comments, I’ll try to answer as many as I can , as quick as I can.

    Thank you for a great article, I was wondering which urticaria treatment method you used to cure chronic urticaria?

  • Sherry Kain says:

    Debbie, my husband has idiopathic urticaria hives with angioedema. He has been suffering with it on a daily basis. We both have been all over the internet looking for what could be causing it to no relief. You on the other hand could have autoimmune progesterone dermatitis. It is caused by a hormone imbalance. A doctor Frances-Web Smith (Gyn doc) from Maumee, Ohio has cured women with this disorder.

      Dear Sherry
      Thank you for your comment, that really is helpful. I have to be honest I have never even heard of autoimmune progesterone dermatitis, although I have read a few pieces about chronic idiopathic being linked to hormone imbalance. I will certainly take a look at this.
      Thank you again
