Hello, during this talk we are going to discuss what to do or how to react to a case of urticaria/angioedema. It has been divided into four objectives. The first is to recognize the al picture, its management, know when we really have to refer a patient with urticaria or angioedema to the allergist, request an allergy.
Study and also know a little about nonurticaria angioedema. basic concepts of angioedema/urticaria. Urticaria is characterized by the appearance of bumps on any part of the body’s surface. It may or may not.
Be associated with angioedema. It normally lasts less than 24 hours, the lesions go down with vitropression, resolve with living a residual lesion. It can be divided into chronic or acute; chronic is the type that lasts more than six weeks, and acute lasts less.
Than six weeks. Diagnosing urticaria/angioedema is basically al and, contrary to popular belief, the majority of the time there is no associated respiratory involvement, and 20% of the general population can have some type of urticaria/angioedema episode in their life without it being caused by an allergic reaction,.
Or call for an allergy study. Well, speaking of possible causes 70% of the urticaria/angioedema events are idiopathic, contrary to popular belief, and only the remaining 30% are going to have a definite cause. For the children population,.
Foods are the most common cause, medications in the adult population, of these antibiotics and physical agents, cold, heat, pressure, dermographism, urticaria due to latex, hymenopterous insect bites,.
Autoimmune. And other causes are infectious processes, aquagenic urticaria, cholinergic contact urticaria or induced by exercise. Now we are going to discuss treatment.
During the acute phase of the urticaria/ angioedema episode the first recourse is antihistamines, for example intramuscular desclofeninamine or nonsedative oral antihistamines, always multiplying the dose by two;.
A saga do diagnstico da urticria crnica espontnea
In the last tutorials, we talked about the lifes impact caused by csu. And I want to thank you, who watch and support the 3.000 days Channel. Through sharing, liking, commenting. Everything helps greatly. So, I want to encourage everyone to keep with me in this Purpose! Unlike a common allergy, that there is a trigger, the chronic spontaneous urticaria have a long way from diagnosis, and this situation wears the patients.
And i wanna talk about that in this tutorial. So, lets go to the saga of CSU Diagnosis. Like you guys know, Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria is a idiopathic disease. But, how this is possible? Idiopathic Diseases are diseases that dont have a responsible factor or this factor simply cant be identified.
In other words, the trigger can exist, but you couldnt be able to find it. Diagnosing a disease like this is a big challenge because you must roam a long and tiring way, until find a disease. (and talking about that, Ill drink some water, cause this talk tired me) In practice, it works more or less like this: The s will ask you for a lot of exams. Patch Test.
blood test more blood test When this exams fails Rast Path Test and no factor of cause is find,.
The s will diagnose you with: CSU (Chronic Spontaneous Urticaria). Or they can say: Not found. In other words, Nothing exist in you body that it is an allergic trigger. This inability of diagnose frustrates the patients.
Because he wants to be free of the disease. Its as if he wanted to find the major culprit, the villain, to get rid of it! But in the case of CSU this isnt possible, so, this way every time gets longer This process is very unfair. But there is one thing that is the messages power; and I really believe that the power of this message can shorten this path and bring much more knowledge.
