Five Factors That Make Urticaria Treatment a Rather Challenging Undertaking In Most Cases760025

There are five factors that can be cited for the difficulties faced by patients who are undergoing treatment for the condition known as urticaria. Not a lot of people are aware that the seemingly dreadful name 'urticaria' actually refers to that condition we are all familiar with: the hives. And in fact at that level, it turns out to be a condition that many people have simply learnt to live with, after successful treatment became impossible to get.
Treatment for urticaria become even more of a challenge primarily because of the fact that no specific causative agent could be identified as the cause of the condition. This is the first factor. Mostly it is identified as one of those physiological malfunctions whose main cause cannot really be pinpointed exactly. If only it were caused by one specific bug or pathogen, then it would be a matter of tracking down that bug and getting rid of it. That is a huge challenge, but a manageable one. We are talking about an autoimmune reaction here, and these reactions are not as straightforward as we'd want them to be.
The second factor that makes treatment of urticaria a rather challenging undertaking is the fact that it is a condition with multiple triggers. There are certain allergens that trigger the condition among some people. Then there are cases where it is clearly not an allergic condition/reaction. Thus, in a given person, it can be rather hard to pin down the triggers. This difficulty in identification makes it harder to go about treating the condition because you don't know what you're looking for. That is because there are hardly any universal treatments. Instead, we have to identify what the specific triggers are and employ some strategies that are designed to manage these triggers.
The third thing or factor that renders the treatment of urticaria very daunting for many people is the presence of many triggers in one person or patient. You might have been able to identify the trigger, but that does not mean you will be automatically able to manage it. Managing one trigger might not completely solve the problem because there is a risk that another trigger could arise. Throughout the whole process, it would look as though the person would remain to have a tendency for urticaria. When it comes to the specific triggers, they can change ' even for the same person.
It could also be that the condition is not diagnosed properly or correctly. Thus, treating urticaria does not go as smoothly as we want. This is always a huge clinical challenge in the management of all conditions.
Lastly, after being subjected to repeated and prolonged treatments, the body could actually start to resist the treatments and cease to become effective, thereby making the urticaria difficult to be healed or cured. Thus, in a given patient, the trigger may be successfully identified, a management strategy put in place - only for that management strategy's efficacy to decline as time goes on.
