ACUTE URTICARIA .What should b the Emergency management_? Any role of Mast cell stabilizing agents in acute Urticaria_?
Expert Answer :
Most cases of simple acute urticaria can be treated with H1 antihistamine agents. In cases of severe or persistent urticaria, H2 antihistamines may be added and are probably additive to the effect of H1 antihistamines if given simultaneously intravenously. Refractory cases may improve with glucocorticosteroids. No role of mast cell stabilisers.
