Although chronic urticaria (CU) occurs in the population at low frequency, its impact on patients’ lives, including work productivity and social interactivity, is significant. The availability of evidence-based treatment guidelines has done little to curb the confusion surrounding appropriate diagnosis, treatment, and management of symptoms in patients with CU. Consequently, patients with CU continue to experience a lowered quality-of-life associated with the disease itself, as well as the side effects resulting from treatment.
