Chronic NETTLE RASH Natural Care

Urticaria is defined as the appearance of small, round, red spots on the skin (wheals),

caused by loss of plasma from small blood vessels in dermis connective tissue. We

analyze below natural treatments for urticaria, its behaviors and official medical therapies.

 

WHAT is CHRONIC URTICARIA

We speak of chronic urticaria when duration of disorder is long (generally more than

6 weeks), or when it tends to recur several times over time.

 

About 30% of adults with urticaria are also affected by angioedema (the swelling deepens

in dermis and spreads over larger areas, affecting lips or eyelids more frequently).

 

In cases of acute urticaria, then of a shorter duration, the cause is often linked to

intake of some drug or food. In case of chronic form, it speaks of spontaneous urticaria,

indicating that the cause remains unknown. The new term chronic spontaneous urticaria

has replaced that of chronic idiopathic urticaria and chronic autoimmune urticaria.

 

WHAT are the CAUSES of CHRONIC URTICARIA

Cause of chronic form, as already mentioned, is often difficult to identify (is unknown

in 50% of cases). It's thought to be linked to an autoimmune reaction (incorrect reaction

of immune system towards a structure of organism itself).

 

Several IgE antibodies have been identified, leading to release of substances

(histamine, leukotrienes, Interleukin 17, IL-23 and TNF-α) by mast cells.

However, these antibodies only detectable in one third of chronic urticaria cases.

Therefore, other factors are involved in onset of chronic urticaria.

But natural treatments for chronic nettle rash achieve the goal of normalizing

metabolic mast cells alterations, which cause this pathology.

 

Mechanism by which urticaria begins, however, is always the same: activation

of mast cells and, therefore, alteration of their metabolism. From this it can

deduced that by restoring metabolism of mast cells, urticaria disorders also disappear.

 

HOW CHRONIC HORTICARIA is TREATED in the TRADITIONAL WAY

Official medical therapy uses, in sequence, antihistamines, corticosteroids,

antileukotrienics, immunosuppressants, biological drugs.  All of these drugs have

side effects of various degrees in short term, but in long term these side effects

can become serious.

 

WHICH NATURAL CURES for CHRONIC URTICARIA

Then, a natural cure for chronic urticaria, effective and without side effects,

is possible, necessary and welcome with use of herbal products like Calendula

Officinalis and Rhodiola rosea. They have anti-inflammatory, anti free radicals,

normalizing microcirculation and soothing action.

 

There are also other natural products, like flavoproteins and coenzymes, which

contribute in a harmless way to the restoration of mast cell metabolism. They act by

favoring the correct release of vasoactive peptides, rebalancing their cell membrane

and promoting the recovery of the immune system functions.
