My mother is 45 years old and we found out she has chronic urticaria. Her physician noticed that and says that is the most common dermatologic problem. Anyway we are worried because of her condition, and especially when we found out it can be many and varied triggers. We would like to hear a little bit more about her disease. Also, why it is called chronic, where is difference of acute?

Disability and stress caused by urticaria can lead to serious impairment of quality of life, and almost comparable to experience of cardiovascular patients.
