Pressure Urticaria

This quite a common condition but the reactive process in this case remains unclear.  The wheals that appear are usually deep through many layers of skin and tissues below the dermis and are painful.  There is a time delay of two to eight hours before the wheals appear and this makes the origin of contact and reaction hard to diagnose.  They then remain on the skin for a further eight to seventy-two hours.  It is also difficult, in that not all contact initiates the problem.

It is often accompanied with tiredness and low grade fever followed by chills.  Muscle ache and headaches become apparent similar to viral infections.

Sometimes it is the bodies own pressure that can instigate the process, e.g. sitting on hard or uneven surface, or the soles of the feet after standing for a long period - but can be confused with build up of lymph in the tissues in the extremities like ankles and lower legs due to inactivity over a day, e.g. shop workers.

 It has been shown that this condition responds to herbal remedies applied topologically.
