Rashes And Hives


(Urticaria, neetle-rash)

A localized or widespread eruption of wheals (of variable size and shape), preceded and accompanied by itching (may be severe).

Individual wheal may fade after few minutes and seldom persists longer than few hours.

Therefore when your doctor wants to examine there may be no lesions.

In such case diagnosis is made on the basis of history.

There may be fever, gastro-intestinal or other constitutional symptoms.

It may recur at short or long intervals.

Acute and chronic forms occur.

In acute urticaria cause may be established but in chronic form the cause may often remain unknown.


Food allergy: Shell fish, crustacean.

Drug allergy: some drugs may give rise to.

Parasites: e.g. intestinal worms.

Physical factors: Light, cold, heat or exertion may provoke it.

Fatigue and overwork predispose.

Frustration and resentment are provocative.

Endocrine and metabolic disturbances may play a contributory role.

  Calculate your Body Mass Index  
  The body mass index (BMI) is a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height. BMI is calculated as the individual's body weight divided by the square of their height.

BMI is frequently used to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height. The excess weight or deficiency may, in part, be accounted for by body fat although other factors such as muscularity also affect BMI.
