What kind of urticaria do I have?
The following chapters provide a precise description of the various forms of urticaria. It is important to differentiate between the different forms of urticaria (there are twelve of them) because each brings with it a different prognosis and therapy. It's also important to know that it is possible to suffer from more than one form of urticaria at once: the most common accompanying illness for urticaria is another form of urticaria.
