How to prevent skin allergies (Urticaria)1?

If the cause of hives can be identified, the first thing you should focus on is avoiding known triggers. Common causes of urticaria include: 1

  Blood transfusions

  Bacterial infections


  Physical stimuli: such as hot or cold exercise, or sun exposure

  Certain food: such as nuts, eggs and shellfish

  Medicines: such as antibiotics, aspirin and ibuprofen


  Pet dander


Skin allergy treatments

Antihistamines are a frequently recommended treatment for hives (urticaria). 1

They work by blocking the effect of histamine, a chemical in the skin that can cause allergy symptoms.1

In addition to antihistamines, your allergist may recommend cold compresses or anti-itch salves to ease the symptoms.1
Severe episodes of urticaria may require temporary treatment with a corticosteroid medication or an immune modulator. If your reaction involves swelling of your tongue or lips, or you have trouble breathing, your allergist may prescribe an epinephrine (adrenaline).1
