The following discussion will focus on chronic spontaneous urticaria as this is the most problematic and long-lasting subtype, and therefore the most amenable to complementary and alternative therapies (CAM).Chronic spontaneous urticaria is a skin disorder characterized by sudden appearance of wheals and/or angioedema that present on a regular basis for at least 6 weeks. The cause remains unclear in the majority of cases and treatment is consequently aimed at symptom management.
