Urticaria and Angioedema

Urticaria is a transient erythematous swelling of the skin, associated with itching, which usually resolves within 24 hours while Angioedema is characterized by swellings caused by edema in the deeper dermal, cutaneous and sub-mucosal tissue. The overlying skin may appear normal.

Chronic urticaria can be associated with rheumatologic disorders, chronic infections including Hepatitis B and C, sinus infections and Helicobacter pylori, as well as parasitic infections (more common in developing countries).
