Claiming that pollen that is absorbed into the body mainly through the airways during the spring months causes urticaria, dermatologist Dr. Gülbiye Güler said: “When urticaria involves deeper tissues, it is called angioedema. This involves swelling on the lips, eyelids, hands and soles of the feet Urticaria, an allergic skin disease, is common in the spring months.

Especially in spring, pollen absorbed into the body through the respiratory tract causes hives. If there is involvement of the digestive system and respiratory tract other than the skin, abdominal pain and a feeling of fullness in the stomach develop. In the respiratory tract, there is a feeling of branching in the voice, a feeling of being stuck when swallowing, shortness of breath and panic in the patient. Since angioedema can be life-threatening, urgent intervention is required. Very rarely, anaphylaxis and hypotension may occur.

In the treatment of physical urticaria, urticaria can be controlled by removing factors such as friction, heat, cold, water, and sun. It may be recommended to keep a diet diary by mentioning that food and food additives can cause urticaria. A diet to remove suspicious foods may be helpful. Antidepressants can also be used in urticaria with sleep disturbances. In local treatment, unlimited hot or cold baths, showers and cold wet dressings are recommended.
