Our experience and expertise of treating a large number of cases has helped us devise effective tips that can be very fruitful to our patients of Urticaria. Some of these are discussed here:

  • Stay in cool (not very cold) environment as far as possible
  • Wear cotton garments and preferable loose-fitting ones
  • Avoid known triggers such as foods or food additives, alcohol, medications, temperature extremes, stress, etc. that can trigger an attack
  • Keep a diary of your activities to help your doctor identify triggers
